Your stop-loss should be equal to your risk percent. If you risk 2% per trade, this means that your stop-loss, if triggered, is equal to 2% of account funds. This risk percent has nothing to do with the amount of capital you trade. That is, it is not the maximum funds you commit to a trade, but rather, the maximum funds you are prepared to risk (lose) per trade.

Say you have \$1,000 capital. Your risk percent is 2% or \$20 on \$1,000 capital. This means that your stop-loss should not exceed \$20 in order to meet the 2% capital rule. Now, suppose the difference between your entry price and nearest support/resistance is, say, 50 pips and each pip is worth 10-cents (micro contract). If you place your stop at nearest support/resistance, you risk 50 pips, or \$5.00 in this example. If you now divide \$20 by \$5 you come out with a factor of 4, which is the total number of contracts you could trade in this instance without exceeding the 2% rule.

Hence, the capital risk factor determines the number of lots that can be traded on a given trade set-up. In the example above, if the stop-loss was 100 pips (\$10) then maximum lots is 2, but if the stop-loss is 20 pips (\$2.00), the maximum lots increase to 10 in this case.

I always advised a beginner to analyze his working day in order to understand where what mistakes are made and his time to correct them.

Totally! Staking your funds with brokers, who aren't even backed up with a good regulation, nothing worse than it
