50% per day. WOW. you won't last long buddy. That is crazy risk for 1% gain. You should reverse those numbers, 1% risk per day and aim for 50% in a year.


thanks, i'll try that

No point having a stop loss if it is 1000 pips!

Even with 0.01 Lot you will eventually loss all your money if you use 1000pip stop loss. You may make profit for a month but if the market turns you are finished

my target is 1% per day, my risk is up to 50% of my current equity.

for lot-ing, i usually use 200-1000 pips resistance; meaning it takes 200-1000 pips movement to reach stop out/margin call.

if i get more than 1% on that day, then i take that as a bonus.


These parameters may sound crazy to us.
But still he is making money with such setup.So why not, as long as he profited more than deposited.

There is no such rule.
If you are some day making more pips than is your targer you surely won't stop and trade even more.
If you are some day not makinmg enough pips you surely not meet the target.


The question should be ho much profit should you make per month to make your trading time worth it.
For me target is about 5% and I am slightly below that.

i never put a target on a trade .
i follow the trend if i decide well then there is no such thing then 10 pips a day .
i never put a % on mij trade bij month of corse i am not scalping ;
my trades run hours or even day s. i am trend trader
for % by month is variable some times 10% sometime 20% en EVEN 80%
en i trade al pairs when they are ready to trade
so i wiat en let the trade come to me .
not chasing the market .
like the most are doing .
everybody whants to scalp

So your target is a 5% increase in your account per month? You are a very very experienced trader but I thought that pro traders made hundreds of percent a year. Is 5% a more realistic target? If it is then my tiny $1000 account is not big enough to make any significant profits

pro traders make like 20-30% a year with very low risk

I agree. No need to measure the profit per trade in pips. And it really doesn't help your performance to know how many pips professional traders make.

It becomes useful to know how much the pair your trading moves on a daily basis if your a short term trader

It depends on your trading style not pips value.
If you are scalper, how do you want to achieve 5,000 pips per month which is easier for swing trader?
Pips value is not important thing to consider.
Your job is to get the profit from Forex trading only.
How to get it?
It depends on you.
