DislikedICT recommends using 2% or your balance for a stop loss for those new to trading. Together with that you want your lot size to give you about a 30 pip stop for newbies.

I think it is more realistic working with dynamic lot sizes starting at ~0.5% and ranging up to ~1% maximum of your total capital, independently of how much it is from it in your balance.
