Watching some of your videos, I was surprised that your initial targets were so small (10 pips or so). I think I  expected full time traders to be pulling in 50/60/70 pips at a time, shows the difference between trading mini lots and larger positions.

All depends on the set ups , interday I want to be in and out safe so between 10 and 30 pips or a third of the ATR is fine. The trouble will most losing traders is greed they swing for the fences to much and blow up, if swing trading then the target is 50+ but ultimately just looking for what the market can give without being greedy

Cant dispute that, I've been guilty of it in the past more than once.

Just a quick one for the weekend as you guys study the basics to gain a foundation of trading here is the link some of you guys have asked for to all the vids on my channel The Scruffy Trader.

All in easy to understand language breaking trading into bite size chucks in real time, hopefully it can help some of the new traders or just give a talking point for the forum.

Do what you love and the money will follow

Nope just my job , I do know some rich guys from trading and none flash the cars etc. You might get glimpses of mine but that is just luck of the camera. Treat it as a job and pays as job

Hello Scruffy.
I was watching another of your videos when it hit me- you could have called yourself Darth Trader. It would have been perfect
Thank you for your time and videos I am learning a lot from them
