divide the buying price by two, then multiply the amount of decimal increments.

Works every time

Could you give me an example if a stock is 1 dollar a share?

If it was a 1 dollar share, the pip incriments would be something like 1.00000

so that's 0.5*5 so your stop loss for a short is 2.5, so invert that to be -0.5 (which of course is hypothetical).

This only works on up to 10:1 leverage using an account of 1000 or greater value. (don't risk more than 1%.)

If you put a stop loss in 10% below what your buying price was, and a stop GAIN 20% above what your buying price was, wouldn't you usually win?

MPmaster

no, because majority of your stocks can still go down instead of up. You're assuming your stocks are 50/50

Depends what you're investing in. If you use this strategy on penny-stocks you will be bankrupt within a year. If you do this on a couple of highly """""predictable"""""" bluechips, it might be a decent strategy, but I don't think you'll beat the market with it so what's even the point.

I was once 27btc down on an ETH long.

Fortunately i was patient, and ended up closing for a 7btc profit.

Also a blue chip most likely will take a few years to get a 20% gain

statistically speaking you're more likely to touch 10% either way than 20%
