I'm retired and don't need more than my current income. Will be more than happy if I can make enough to buy a weekly bottle of good value Champagne ($29.99 Perrier-JouÃ«t on sale at the local liquor store) and a Saturday night dinner at Chili's or TGIF or Ruby Tuesday with the wifey. Just asking for shared experience if any: Which markets? Position size? Ratio between take profit (TP) and stop loss (SL)? I plan to trade mostly ES, but also GC, CL, (maybe NG) on IB TWS with $40k in equity, so low commission nice access to markets and obviously razor thin take profit and stop loss. My problem is this is obviously a tiny account in the greater scheme of things but even if $100 a week probably sounds like chump change to them all ET top guns, that'd be a 13% ROI on a $40k account. I don't have much of an edge, except I don't need the money (so no error inducing stress). Just wondering in particular what the correct TP/SL ratio is. Planning to start with TP 0.80% and SL 0.60%. Does that make any sense? Or should I go golfing rather?
