Not exactly. You would need big trades to make some useable profit. When you place big trades you need big capital to stay safe. When you have big capital you will are careful and need better plan than just 5 pips a day.

 Agreed. Simple minded trades say that you need a BIG ACCOUNT, but no matter the size of the account, risk management SHOuLD always remain the same. If you believe that risking more than 2% of your total account is not something you should never do, then yo create your system around it.

I'm not mathematician, but somehow I believe that win rate and the ability to risk more than 2% successfully is somehow interrelated. Nowadays I rarely have a losing streak, I'n my opinion, I should be able to risk more than 2%, perhaps 5% or even more. Any opinions on this? Intuitively, if a trading style has a string of losses, then one single trade should have a tighter limit for loss %.

Risk profile and money management should be implemented according to the trading strategy. If strategy changes, then money & risk management should be modified, too.

 Exactly. Now, one states that he or she doesnt have many straight losses, but it could be based on randomness or an edge. If it is an edge, then one shold be using martingale money management to offset the last loss or losses in order to make a small profit over the sequence of trades.

I don't know about martingale, but I would increase betting while winning and scale down when losing :) Isn't it a bit contrary to martingale?

 Martingale results in you increasing lot size after a loss. This allows one to recover quicker from the previous loss or losses. The issue is, simply thinking that you can't lose forever isnt a valid trading system. Which is why oe finds a system, and some sort of edge where the number of consecutive losses are greatly diminished after every loss. That is when you scale in your money management.

5 pips a day is not risk management
5 pips a day is relatively small profit
To make living with 5 pips a day you need big trades.
I hope I wrote it so simply even you can understand it :)

If you make on average 5 pips a day every day that is around 1250 pips a year. If you start with 1 Lot, compound your account and increase the stake size that is some pretty good annual profit.
