That is a fair point. Most pros look at percentage growth rather than pips. And daily targets are stupid. Some days the markets are flat and it is impossible to make any profit. Other days there is loads of nice movement and you can make 200 pips. It is better to check results over a month or longer

Some back testing and you'll see what's the best times for trading your pair ,set notification of levels.True pros do use % but it's mostly associated with older assets. On those flat days in pairs I jump across assets like stocks ,commodities , bonds etc.

Today I got 5 pips, which equals to 1.3% of account size. Holding time maybe 4-5 hrs. I was lucky.

I don't know how many pips it is but in my opinion if someone trade 10 000 USD (For example) daily profit should be 0,27 %. Is it possible to realize? (Balance: 10 000 USD. Trade only 0.01 - 0.02 lot. Goal - 0,27% daily. )

If I could guarentee that I would make only 1pip per day then I would be a rich man. The problem is not how many pips per day but how likely you will make any profit whatsoever in a day. Most people lose some day (if not most day)

forex beginner traders always think in terms of 'pips' - this mindset is due to all sorts of educators talking only about 'pips'. In reality $, £ or any other currency should be your priority, not 'pips' - you can't put 'pips' in your bank account. Some strategies can generate profits in $ but at the same time be negative in 'pips'...

Everyone should think in percent. All this talk of pips is BS and does not matter. I think it is the brokers trying to give misinformation about how to trade and the concept of pips this and pips that. Pips irrelevant., what really matters is risk (in %) and profit in (%)

You do not have idea what you are talking about.

Because risk = stop loss in PIPS * trade size
profit or loss = trade outcome in PIPS * trade size

Depends on the market. It is better to not have a target in mind but see what the market yields. Artificial pip targets can be problematic and cause over trading

The market makers (Big Banks) have rules for their traders that include using the Fibonacci progressions and trading for a minimum of 55pips. If you learn how to mimic their agenda trades, you should be able to make 100-200 pips per day on average.

IMHO planning how much pips or dollars you make per day is nonsense.
You should follow trading plan.
Trading plan defines when to enter and when to exit trade.
So some day you make some pips, some day you make even more and some day you lose some pips.
There is no FGH [holy grail] which would provide 100 pips every day.

Daily is quite a short time frame to look at pips. I only look at monthly pips count. I am getting around 300 now but made a loss for long time
Hey Man, just control your speed. I dont know how its possible...whats your system. Can you please tell me about your system. 20-30pip is risk free I think.
Day by day having better, better and better...
