General question: Should the amount of risk per trade factor in the type of trading you are doing? For example day trading vs swing trading.

If your a day trader and make 3 to 5 trades a day, wouldn’t you want your % risk to be lower?

If your swing trading where your making 1 trade a week, then the % risk could be higher?
