I 'scale-in' to my positions, so the initial lot can be 0.04, then add 0.03 then lastly 0.02. Same risk amount for each scaled-in position.

Do you know how to trade profitably? I can only find one public account that is not doing well.

I was like you before, cannot trade but want to go around telling people how to trade, and posting comments like '..... your variable lot sizing is killing your account mate'. When challenged I will be in denial and tell people '.... time will tell'.

Like me, it will probably take you another 6 years to become self-aware and finally be convinced you can't trade. You don't have any result to speak, but you feel that better months are up ahead, and '..... time will tell'.

You are not ready to hear this, but when you become self-aware of the reality, you won't comment on other people's results until you have something to show. Right now you will (like me before) still go around telling people how they are 'killing their account' and getting slapped with nothing to show. It will take time to realize that.

Thank you for your input.......I just noticed that you are generally up in points but the gain does not follow up. Not meaning to imply that you can't trade. Just thought I would humbly mention that your 'variable' lot size seems to be the hindrance.

I am not you........but thanks for sharing your experience. Peace

Like I said before, I was like you many years ago going around other people's pages to make comments pointing out their flaws and faults. It can't be helped at this point (you will still do it). You will realize it years later.

That gives you the right to poke around other people's pages to point out their faults? You must think you are very good from this picture.
