.... make 10 points everyday in NQ....

1. Would you recommend me to scale up my contracts gradually?

2. Would you recommend me to get some contracts out at first targets and let runners run?

3. Would you recommend me to increase my target even larger as I can still hit 15-20 points instead of just quitting at 10 points?

I know I didn't say the last one before, but now that I added that...

That NQ B/A size can be in the single digits suggests there is a limited potential in sizing up at a single entry point. This is obvious with the multi-point jumps the NQ makes as market orders enter the fray. The only way for you to answer your question is to experiment and it will be dependent on the where, what, how and why of your decisions. If you can do 10 with 1 contract try 10 with 2. If that works consistently then try 3 with 2 out at 10 and 1 out at 15. This is a problem that is particular to how you trade and only you can figure out the correct solution.

Definitely option 3 , I don't know what your drawdown limit looks like but overleveraging can be a killer. I personally believe a trader should never leverage up to compensate for lack of trade setup fruition.
