Of course, my intention was to say that 30 pips stop loss is good for day trading in H1 time frame.

Most of my stops on eur/usd are 10 pips or less but I been trading this pair for awhile ,what I do is let it move 20-30 pips beyond its indicator say its trading near the 50 DMA ,that normally clears out most stop hunting.

It is indeed good thing to use SL/TP
It is not good thing on insisting to make xxx pips profit each day.
This may result in loss or avoidance of trading plan

I use volatility based ATR stop loss instead of fixed pips.my take profit pips also based on ATR. For example for EURUSD my STOPLOSS pips are from 40pips to 100pips based on current volatility.
The market will trade through it’s path of least resistance .

They all trade in different time frames and each of them have set their limit in taking profits for a day.. so ask yourself how many pips do u think u can get daily...that should be yours..

Typically 3 times your stop loss ,longer time frames bigger gains.Eur/usd it's around 30-50 pips daily.

If your going to be cashing in everytime you hit 10 pips ,your stop is going to be 3 pips which is way to little ,if its 5 pips stop 1 in 2 trades has to win to break even ,thats without fees ,typical stop for EUR/USD is at least 20-30 pips intra- day.Other pairs are different so do your homework before deciding.

I agree with this. Some sources recommend for scalping 7-8 pips stop loss, but I think stop loss should be more than 10. I agree with 20-30, while 30 is a bit excessive. But in order to prevent a catastrophic flash crash 30 pips is more than Ok in daily trading.

Regarding Scalping one needs to keep it as tight as possible but that takes experience ,it would be less and less ,if you catch the right moment it can be 5 pips stop.Scalping is a great skill to learn and great fun.

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.

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.

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

These parameters may sound crazy to us.

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.

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
