10 pips a day everyday can make you very wealthy if you have a 10000 account and can trade 10 lots 10 pips a day is 1000 dollars 20000 a month thats all you need and when reach 20000 ore 30000 you can do 20-30 lots yes you can do the math the trick is too not have loosing days and make the 10 pips a day should also have 10 pips a day stoploss so when down 10 pips quit i am scaling for 1-3 pips a trade and make 20-30 pips a day but also have some loosing days not many but some and i stop at 20 pips loss i trade one standard lot and make usually 2-300 a day and loose 200 3-4 days a month so i have a nice little profit of 3-5000 a month

I would work off percentages rather than pips and try to have your target over a month rather than a day.....or you may find yourself pushing to be in trades you don't need to be in.

As a rule of thumb my goal is to establish a trading system, whose monthly percentage gain is between 15% and 25%, daily ~1 %. Today I got 14 pips after 5 hr sitting in front of my laptop. I don't know if this is possible consistently, but we'll see. For each $50 I increase lot size by 0.01 lots. It seems that there are going to be days when the daily pips are in red but profits are in solid green.
I guess this will be providing an emotional roller coaster for me for a couple of coming years. I have a very small account. By the way I threw all the nonsense of trading longer time frames out of the window.

Generally, I try to risk only 2% on average.

I am using a stop loss of 20 pips as a backstop, and the average win is around 10 pips. My average win percentage over 400 trades is 60%.

Does this make any sense? If not, please clarify why.

Well that seems reasonable if only I knew what pair you were trading ,if your trading one certain pair maybe it would be of benefit to see what are the maximum times for trading it instead of sitting for 5 hrs ,its actually better to start with a small account because you'll be more careful with each trade ,however 2% is a bit on the high side ,if your using 20 pip stop you should have at least a 20 pip win or above.

That is a fair point. Most pros look at percentage growth rather than pips. And daily targets are stupid. Some days the markets are flat and it is impossible to make any profit. Other days there is loads of nice movement and you can make 200 pips. It is better to check results over a month or longer

2% risk is good.
I would say your risk to reward ratio needs to be looked at.

I will explain to you mathematically. You will burn your account over time.

Example: 1000 trades in a swap free and commission free account.
60% winning is 600 trades x 10pips = 6000 pips.
40% losing is 400 trades x 20pips = 8000 pips

you lose 2000pips. with lot size of 0.01. you lose $200.00. Regardless of how much money you have in your account, you will still burn it. it's just a matter of time.

However, 60% win rate with 20pips. 40% lose rate with 10pips. compound that, you will be a successful trader. Good luck.

Some back testing and you'll see what's the best times for trading your pair ,set notification of levels.True pros do use % but it's mostly associated with older assets. On those flat days in pairs I jump across assets like stocks ,commodities , bonds etc.

Easier said than done. But you make a very good point about how win rate and RR are closely linked and you cannot focus on one without ignoring the other.
