20, 50, 100 or 200 pips your target?

  1. 20, 50, 100 or 200 pips your target?...what is your preferred pip total target per trade?...trying to see how many really hang in trades for 50-200 pip profits or do most FX traders just scalp in the 5-20 range?
  2. Depends on volatility and time frame.

    More volatility = bigger target.

    Larger time frame = bigger target.

    Trade off larger time frames. Better risk to reward. Scalping is best left to pro's.
  3. When I get in, I do it for the sake of a few big figures, no less.
  4. very good points...thanks
