The difference between pips vs balance/equity looks a little strange because I also trade some exotic crosses (which are calculated in huge amounts of pips) and sometimes XAU and XAG, so its not a good idea to use pips calculation to find out the trading style. [smiley]
The volatility is still there, the absent is price action , specially in the eurusd pair... good trades for everyone.

My point of view is that ok you can make millions on balance by closing positions by hedging positions but 100 bucks on equity, the real money is the one you have when you close all your positions.. as an example.. are we really sure that if i was short just few months ago when eu was less than 1.28 it will come back to that position?.. or maybe if i had cut my loss at 1.29 y will have now more than 200 pips in my pocket.. balance is the worst ilusion we believe is true.. just an opinion.. :)
I think that using sl/tp, money managment, etc, depends on emotions, the less you control yourself even when you win make you stepout when you dont have to, and also when you "think" the market will turn to your way when we loose. A good strategy is the one that keeps out our emotions.. just my thought :)
thats the learned lesson, we are not infallible.. and no one is. good post

keep going akatom.. very true one step at a time... [wink]
That was exactly my first impresion, about the opened trades is really not that important but equity it is, also giving that importance at the charts as well. hope it will change in a near future.

Most of the time i do not use pending orders, as i wrote above i wait based on my feeling of the fundamental news and the speed of a retracement, its more like a perception of the market based on what i c on the charts and a confirmation on the indicators, thats why its kind of difficult to explain.
