Today’s Surf

1:30am EST– There was a moving average crossover for a short trade. RSI was less than 50, stochastics were trending down, and MACD went from positive to negative. This was a valid entry. The entry was at the close of the candle at 2.0010 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 2.0044. Since I was only 10 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level (2.0000), I decided to go for the same amount of pips I was risking on the trade, which in this case was 34. This put my initial target at 1.9976.

Entry: Short at 2.0010
Stop: 2.0044
Initial Target: 1.9976

3:15am EST– Unfortunately I was stopped out of my trade.

Trade Result: -34 pips; R-Multiple: -1.00

    Hey pip surfer, do you trade this for real money? The reason i not personal, it is because with the stops are usually 30-40 pips out and that is 300 to 400 $ at risk. this means that to trade this strategy based on my idea of not putting more than 2% risk in a trade, I could only trade 2 at a max 3 lots with 50K. Do you suggest one, two, or 3 lots? Or what do you do personally?
    Feel free to tell me to mind my own business..I won’t be offended.
