Nice to see; you are not an aggressive trader; basically following the money management is the best practice!

Thank you; yes, I don’t take more than 2% risk in per trade! Although, my strategy provides a decent return!

my top 4 in pips:


as you can see the holding time is anything from 10 days to 3 months. The longest time ever for a position I had was 15 months - and in the end it was a 695 pip looser NZDCHF :(

Some big pip targets here but pips it a totally meaning less measure for profit. $$$$ and %%%% are what really matter

Pips may seem 'meaningless' when measuring actual dollar gains, but without market movement (pips) no gains can be made!
Higher pips = Greater market movement = Bigger profit potential.

Professional traders measure their performance in pips and not dollars: Justin Bennett, Mark Shawzin, etc.

Generally speaking:

Positive pips = a winning strategy
Negative pips = a losing strategy

You will find Grid-Martingale EAs often have negative pips, because they use recovery orders to close large pip losers.
Hence GMEAs have a negative pip expectancy:

Take care of your pips, and the profits will take care of themselves! 😎

For a trend following trader the number of pips they squeeze from a trend is directly proportional to profits in cash. It also says about the QUALITY of trend traders as it's not easy at all to time a trend right... but if you do it well it's very rewarding. This is why there are not so many contributing to this thread - nothing to show... Of course, some may scalp a trend with EAs - it's good - but so much riskier especially at the trend turns (good for brokers thou)...

Positive pips determine how good was the trade
But the profit of such trade depends on its size.

SO
1 lot trade with 10 plus pis generate more profit than
0.1 trade with 50 pips.

That's why it is good to use leverage and get more profit. Wisely!

sure - but this relates to traders' risk management... the guy asked about one's longest trend in pips. There are not so many quality trend traders around thus the low activity on this trend... By the way most social platforms 'push' beginners to concentrate on making pips from scalping - that's wrong... 😎

My biggest trade was 1700 pips shorting EURNZD. It was back in 2014 when the Euro was falling apart. The best part was that it was collecting a nice swap while I held for just over three months.

But it actually messed me up pretty bad. While it was one great trade, this was early on in my trading and set the wrong mindset for me. After that, I gave back all the profits and a significant chunk on top of that chasing 1000 pips trades. Since then times have changed and there is a lot more of this grinding type action in the markets. I find it much more tougher to get the big trades these days and now look for much smaller pips.

The only place I think you might be still able to get a good return with fair risk is in equities. Perhaps Gold if it does another leg higher, but timing is so important in these type of trades if you want to make sure your risk is controlled.
If you don't stay humble, the market will make you humble
