    Post Equity and it's effect ( imagine it )

    Hello,

    I was doing manual backtest will post how to do it soon , it was from 6 Oct. till 9 Oct. i made 4392$ in profit from 17 trades with a capital of 30000$ and a target of 30 Pips per trade .


    That made me wonder how huge the difference that equity can make so i made the following table showing what makes the difference between the income we make and the income the large firm makes



    Simple trade

    leverage 1:200
    symbol eurusd.
    type sell
    rate 1.2954
    Profit 1.2924

    Link to the Picture



    so you should be proud of how much pips you make because one day you will be able to get huge income from lower pip counts



    Best Regards

    Waleed Elgamal

    When you open a position and the market moves with or against you you will find that the equity value increases or decreases so in plain :

    It's the unrealized gain or loss on open trade positions.

    Stop Loss
    This order is used for minimizing of losses if the security price has started to move in an unprofitable direction. If the security price reaches this level, the position will be closed automatically. Such orders are always connected to an open position or a pending order. Terminal checks long positions with BID price for meeting of this order provisions, and it does with ASK price for short positions.
