yes. _somehow semiautomated. I execute trades from keyboard. the reason is this to prevent from oldtick, slippage and high spread. EA gets the execution command from keyboard and execute it when the situation is good for the trade. with that I also can monitor the slippage.
BUT I spend all time watching the screen, each tick.
Still, $5000/ $5 = 1000 😲 I usually trade size that is 1/10000 of my account per pip to 1/5000 per pip. Are you going to do it manually?
not so much. I reduced it from 10$/pip to 5$/pip😉
Oh Brave One ! 😲
Steve, you mean you open position with $5 per pip size?
thanks Chikot same wishes for you.
I will reduce the risk from 0.75 LOT per 5000$ equity >> 0.50 LOT per 5000$ equity.
this is %50 of my initial plan. So this will reduce my risk %50.
