Slowing my trading down a bit so Going with a 2 Minute chart/Cumulative Delta and TICKQ for day trading instead of the 10 second.
Also I have 7 PA(Preformance Accounts with APEX so I will post my daily balances with those
PA 1

Weekly Risk Budget: 1,800 Ticks

Hi, am I understanding this correctly? You will risk 86,400 ticks which is $43,200 for the year if trading the MNQ?

If so, I wish I had deep pockets like that!

No basically that number would be 10 losing trades every trading day for a year and no winning trades ... its the absolute worst case scenario in my trading

Overall Red day today had a couple of 20 point runners that came back and stopped me out breakeven but sticking to the process

I had a short bias to start the day, which really hurt me after a couple of breakeven stop outs, but I was able to manage loss size very effectively

Looks like the same trading everyone else does? How do you ever expect to profit beyond fees and slippage in the long run?

I'm not sure why the market takes you out? Why not set a profit taker limit over and over again? Instead of a stop out by the market?

I don't have your answers just mine so don't take it personally.

Many studies have been done on trader nias and most losers including myself when they lose can say it was bias

Yes I just use extended profit targets usually 5 or 6 to 1 risk unit so winning trades turning into losers is part of the game or breakeven stops being hit.

My system sorry about the confusion and completely agree woke up a little late so didn't really have confidence to hold for bigger profits. But I agree 8 Ticks is marginal on the NQ

Glad I do not have to trade in the Honolulu time zone.
