stian, it's a good sharing of your experience. quadruple your risk means you have a 4times stoploss distance? what makes you come up with this decision? without a rational reason, suddenly you 4x your risk means you change your stoploss from near to far? and the change comes after you evaluated the near key levels? I can hardly imagine which part of the equation we can suddenly quadruple without a big shake in the whole strategy....the only one I can think of is the account balance which was pumped up extensively...not because of loss...it's because the strategy has tested with sufficient period, and you decide to escalate the account size. what do you think? IMO, I'll be very careful to choose the timeframe that fits my personality and trading strategy, then, I'll have to plan what win rate/rr ratio/ dd I want to use, once set, I don't think I can suddenly change the rr-ratio for a 4x scale because it turns a short term trade to a medium, or medium to medium-long. Extensive change of risk ratio without balancing by reward and timeframe is not right for me... and if all these are changed simultaneously..basically you are changing your whole strategy to a rather different species.
