DislikedHi, there are two common ways in trading. #1: big position in short time #2: small position in long time it depends on your choice, no need to agree or argueIgnored

**don't forget the power of compounding.**

If you consider a big position as 1.0% and a small position of 0.5% then

#1: big position in short time

On a $1000 balance risking 1.0% on 5 pips 8 times means a balance of $1407

#2: small position in long time

On a $1000 balance doing 0.5% on 40 pips once means a balance of $1200

Someone on here mentioned a return rate of about 82% so even if you lost two of the 5 you'd still have a balance of $1209

To put it another way, using #1 you only need 4 wins (20 pips) to get to $1215
