I got it. You use some kind of bot... not the whole of the move 815 pips but a lot of small trades for few pips, right? the more volatility the more you pick pips.

ive pulled out longs for a total of 815+ pips today, after poor money management last month ive been more reserved with the bets laid down, but looking at a 20% increase on capital today,

put in a small 0.09 sell @ 1.295 target 1.2935 SL 1.310

edited my post so i can see the new posts (what you steve refered too earlier)


+815 pips? 😲

what then are you bitching about man ?😁


oh im not moaning!! no not at all!! :) quite the opposite, has been a GOOD day today :)

i trade multiple small bets, which means my broker makes quite alot of commission from me, but if market moves against me i do not loose so much so easy so the 815 pips are actually a market move of 160 pips or so if you understand??

:)

EDIT so no where near as good as your 500 pip single trade!!

no quite right

the 815 pips are from multiple manual trades today size 0.01 to 0.08,

reason for doing it this way, is ive been burnt twice recently by putting 0.4 bets down in one go, so now i split them up and put bets down whilst watching the market moves.

i do use an EA along side my manual trades, the ea currently is around 1500- pips, not good! looking for eur to sell now to get EA out of trouble, if market pushes above 1.3 i will hedge it further, all hedge bets where removed @1.3 temporarily

lucky as ive had a operation 3 weeks ago and are off work so have time to manually adjust multiple manual trades all day :)

I have no idea how you can do it manually. Just beyond me.

today Ive manually done around 16 trades in the last 160 pip market moves, adding all the pips up comes to the 815+ pips

for example, the 3 sells there are
0.02 @1.985
0.03 @1.2994
0.05 @1.2999

totaling 0.09, now i used to put the whole 0.9 down in one, but if market went against i lose the full 0.9@SL

so i put in a small bet, and see if it goes the right way then keep adding to it in small increments,

does this explain it any better?

I used this logic on one of my Ea which has good back test results for 13 years at daily & 1hr chart.
So I mean you do it correct way. You can find bt at strategies under my profile. Cant remember the name now.

how you determine your sl.
For each basket
Same for all which is the first executed order?
Or individual?
