    It's nice that you put once the accout grows and not IF the accout grows.

    I do not want to be a naysayer. I know the mathematics - this has tried. You will see and uncover the issues very fast. Do you truly know what averaging 24 pips/day means? I will not spoil the fun because I would like you to detect it.
    By the way, ever heard the story of the poor man asking as his reward from the rich man, only 1 penny each day but awakened each day for the whole month of May? The rich man laughed in the poor man's low self esteem. If he had to hand over $ 6 million to the poor man, he wasn't laughing though on the 31st of May.
    Math FX can be complied.

    By the way, ever heard the story of the bad man asking as his reward from the wealthy man, only 1 penny each day but awakened each day for the whole month of May? The wealthy man laughed at the man's low self esteem. He wasn't laughing on the 31st of May, if he needed to hand around $6 million into the bad man.

    That is odd. . .must happen to be on a wierd calendar

    On the 31st day in may, Rich man would pay poor man $10,737,418.24 to get a entire payout of $21,474,836.47 in may.

    Yes sir, you are correct! I didn't say $10M! However, I think you may get the point. By the way, my point was that it's lot harder than it seems to create 24 pips per day - a average. Forex brokers are extremely smart cookies.... I didn't say they are true blue but they know a few things that newbies don't. For example -- stay away from 400:1 leverage.

    lol! I finally figured out what was causing me to loe something peculiar about the whole thing. I said I did not get something right. .

    I mean, with 400/1 leverage, how could anybody keep such huge stoplosses and not get burned the minute the market turns from them? I personally though 400/1 is sensible suicide, but it depends on how you view leverage.

    And it struck me, I appear to have misunderstood you concerning leverages. How I use leverage is by taking a look at the total ammount in play compared to the balance. Consequently, if I had a 3K account, entered for 30K $ which requires (for my own broker) 300$ margin, an official 100/1 leverage, I consider it as being a 10/1 leveraged commerce, since 10/1 is the branch between my 3K account and 30K in play.

    And seeing how you use 4.000$ in your trades when your balance was 150$, in my own opinion a 400/1 leverage will be 60.000$ commerce. You were taking 4.000$ trades which imho would be a leverage of 26.6666... / 1

    no wonder that I did not understand it. Everything depends on how you calculate leverage. . I kept thinking with 400/1 there's something definately weird happening with such long stop losses. .

    I was most likely the only one not getting it. lol!

    L.A. lt;- feeling rather dumb now

    Hey ingestion, thanks for the input. I am sort of amazed that I've managed to pull in 24 pips per day so far with 6 steps over a period of 7 trading days. On my very first article I said that some steps (24 pip intervals) could span out about 3 days. Hell, they could span out even more... the whole structure here is not about hurrying to 1 million (even though it's fun to consider), it is about after 155 24 pip intervals and increasing lot sizes so.

    Some of those issues are pointed out and they're limitations with the broker. The reduction of 400:1 @ $100k account limitations, and equilibrium on lot sizes which could have me opening 3 replie lots at some point simulating one. I really don't see 24 pips per day as a limitation because, if it is, I could just shoot for 2-3 years in length if I needed to and just get 1/3 the amount of pips.

    Maybe it is just luck, but I have not had much of a problem winning with ease thus far. We'll see how long it continues.
