Hello elipec,

This is a very good question you ask.

Your questions leads me to ask other questions such as :

1. How much profit/reward are you seeking per trade?

2. How much loss/risk are you willing to tolerate per trade?

Thanks

So Risk vs Reward is 2 per day.

Do you want to close positions by the end of market session? If yes, this means you are an intra-day trader, which means IMO, the charts should be looking at 1 hour to 1 min time(1hour, 50 min, 40 min, etc?) frame charts. This way you can monitor price action for more defined entry.

Sorry to say, but with your risk proposal it is pretty clear that even with very cheap FX brokers you will
have a lower limit problem. (Or you use e.g. bucket shops which hide the fees within their spreads.)

You regularly pay minimum fees and your fees per trade show double-digit percentages (>10%) compared
with your P/L per trade - right?

Generally the dominant wavelengths of the market will carry more information and should be easier to trade for the beginner: think hourly or daily. However, you can gain more experience on shorter time frames which could translate into greater advantage.

If the tolerable risk per day is about converted $15 that has absolutely nothing to do with time frames,
much less with rapidly debasing currencies like naira and even much less including minimum fees.

Even taking the naira and buying physical $ or € and sit on it would be more sensible than trading with that profile.
