Hi,

I think that the real question you should be asking yourself is : What time frame to trade and where to place stop loss and set targets. Without answers to these questions you will not close loosing trades and you will be closing profitable trade very early.

I think that as long as a trade did not touch its stop loss or take profit levels then it should stay opened. Remember, trading big time frames require keeping a trade opened from several hours to several days .

As you are a beginner, i advice you never to risk more then 1% on the overall positions you have in the market.

Good luck and safe trade.

My EA Robots hold position from around 30 minutes to max around 6h. But it is enough to make +800 pips in week.

It is all on you: if you are scalper, long-term trader or intraday trader. As for me, I never let the trade to stay over the night. If it didn’t reach SL and TP I close it anyway with the NW closing.

As for me, it doesn't matter to close the positions before going to bed. If have your SL and TP then what is wrong with keeping your trades open?

Sometimes i keep the position open for a couple of days in the raw. Nothing bad will ever happen if there is a SL

It doesn't really matters.

it only depends on what type of trading style you use:

My style is like that:
Swing --> no sl, duration: months
Day trading --> SL & TP, duration: less than a day
Scalping --> SL:10, TP:19, duration: few sec to 30 min.
