ikeaboy,

I don't know what your tick/pips goal per day. I suggest focus on 6B for now. Build your account with it. It's predictable enough using proper tools, a couple of indicators. I trade it on m1 during US session. The Frankfurt/London session will suit you well with on 6B. Later, you can add 6E.

criss

my stop loss is about 8-12 ticks... the final target about 16-24 ticks ... depending on the pair and its ATR...

i am not very patient so i will have a look at more than only one pair...

There is also the crude oil mini QM. Never traded it, so I am not sure about liquidity, but I am assuming it moves as well as CL.
