margin for 1 mini lot : at present it is 2000 plus (day trading)

My issue: 10 points sl is pretty easy to touch. Candles in the evening session will generally have 6-7 rupee range so 2-3 candles can easily touch your sl. You will get stopped out because of noise itself.
yes...10 points sl is very easy to hit.

i will explain about that 10 points sl......after some trades.

i mean ....i already tested with that 10 points sl in december with one mini lot in live market.

the results are positive.

so after a trade completed ...i will explain with the graph and also my trading result ( entry point, exit point.....screenshot of trade result)

On the other hand, it makes sense.

I analyzed my one year journal recently. I trade a lot of crude. I've found that 99% of my losses are either below 10 pips or above 25 pips.

So closing at 10 makes sense. Yea, it might hit a couple of times but it's better than losing 25 pips right?
hi goldenedge...... are right....10 points is better to hit couple of times.other than 25 points in a single trade.
from today on wards my day trading is started.
yesterday U.S market was closed.that's why no trading yesterday.

i think around 8-12 calls per month only.....
hiii frd
1 st trade is completed.

buy at 3687 at 2.00 pm

exit at 3717 at 2.43 pm

but i want to tell you something about result in the image.
actually nickel bought at morning with another strategy (ORB).
but it was a loss trade.
after that when signal is came as per adx strategy
i bought 10 crude mini for covering that nickel loss of 900 rs.
so 10 crude mini buy at 3687.
sell 5 mini at 3607 for loss recovery in nickel.
another 5 mini close at 3717. as per 30 points from buy that is 3687 .
total profit ==rs. 1,600/-
that means 6 % from my capital 25,000/-
one more trade is enough to reach target 10%.
actually i trade a risky trade today.
i mean 10 mini with 25,000 capital is very risk.
next time i will try to avoid over trading.

in the graph no adx indicator.
i will add after some trades with explanation.
