I am still looking for good new entries on few pairs. For all purposes I wonder how eur can go up, but cannot question the market. Finished taking profits on Gbp/Aud and NZD/USD now I will let the left positions run until I either get signal in opposite direction or my trailing stop gets hit.
After I start trading live in a couple of weeks I will still leave trades opened on demo run to the end.

Steve, I did not get the question? I will lose 1% per each losing trade. with Oanda I can set pip size any way to risk only 1% with any stop size. But I prefer to keep stop at no more than 150 pips. preferably up to 120 of course to have it behind some swing.

My task is to lock 2:1 R:R by taking profits and moving stop and leave 30-40% of total previous position run as far as it can.

in general, when your trade hit SL, what % you loose from your equity?

ok, I see now that full size G/U trade is -91 pips against me with full stop 120 pips equal $1000. -91 pips shows -0.58%
