Working on different plan. most probably I will have to trade between 2:00 a.m to 5:30-6:00 a.m. and may be 10:00 a.m. -1:20 p.m. only 30 min after all news. and most probably not oil anymore until I have my schedule I had June-September. See no sense to trade it without best possible schedule. Will move to Eur/Usd only trading now. Used to trade the pair and 2:00-6:00 time is ok.

E/U almost doe snot move. Had 4 trades. 2 went 15-27 pips in my favor an dhit BE stops. one was lost the the last i targeted just 30 pips and reasonable place but closed few pips above as price was failing to break and I have to go. so took it to cover my loss. I guess taking same number of pips I risk in such choppy condition would be better than looking for 1:2 or more R:R.

too many BE trades. each BE stop means I had 10+ pips. amazingly slow moving market this week. hopefully this one will run.

Chikot,

Why the aversion to scalping?

You should take what the market offers to you, with no taboos.
This is how i see it. I never understood why people discard scalping and see it as a low level of trading or something like that,
I do everything needed to take pips off the market. If what the market is offering is more suitable to scalping, then that it is what i'm going to do. If the market is more suitable to swing trading, no problem, I'll do the dancing. If you say' i dont want to scalp' i think you are limiting yourself for no reason.

Yes, that's true. Today I had 5 BE trades. each went 10+ pips in profit up to 27 and I got nothing. The loss was only one.
The problem is that I think that if I start taking small pips I will not be able to take bigger pips when market starts running.
The problem seems to be how to determine when to take profit.

will try to take it into my plan. But the question to be answered how to decide whether to take pips that i have even if it is equal or smaller than risk or not.
