Simple Strategy to Get Over 100 Pips Per Trade

Looking for a way to get more from your trades? Well then this information is for you. Let me ask you, are you the type of trader to get 5 to 10 to a possible 30 pips per trade? Go through your history, is it possible you may be taking less than what you would want.

And what if i told you there was a way to trade less but make more from each trade. Would you be interested?

how to get more than 100 pips per trade plus

Well who would not yeah. Let’s look at the numbers, a trader that makes 5 to 10 pips per trade is equivalent to how many trades when it comes to 1 x 100 pip trade. If you answered around 15 to 20 trades would you be spot on. Now, here is the cruncher. How many trades do you do a week? If you answered around 10 to 15 that would be pretty average, so now you are probably thinking if you are trading this way 1 trade is basically equivalent to all these trades in one week. That means that a trader can trade once a week and make more than a trader that trades many times.

And here is another point, the 1 trade trader can what? Trade multiple trades with little to low risk. Why, because they can lock in there trade early and focus on another.

Now, let’s look at why Traders scalp like this, other than inexperience, traders take small pips due to fear and greed, let me tell you these are the biggest enemy in this business and over time it will bite you. A small pip trader will keep trading even if they are buying or selling in a possible neutral zones ( between ranges ). This is a big problem as sooner or later there trades will get trapped and in the most unwanted places on the charts.

I see it often in other traders, buying at h4 and daily highs and selling at h4 and daily lows. This is what i call a painful situation.

Now when it comes to the 100 pip plus per trade trader they can wait and be patient and then execute there trade, walk away and then check there trade later. It is all partly due to a good mindset.

So, How Do They Do It? 

This is the answer, well it is not that big a difference really, the difference mainly is waiting for price zones on the higher time frames. Once a trade is executed then you simply place your stops and set you take profit up at the next major support or resistance. Heck, you can even go for more pips in certain markets. The most important aspect though is this, once the trade is in profit of at least 40 pips or more, then I recommend setting the stop loss at break even.

That way, you can now ignore this previous trade and let it go to the first set target without any risk what so ever. As can be seen on the h4 chart examples below the take profit can be adjusted depending on what the next major resistance or support is, however you will see that each of the examples below show easy targets of more than 100 pips per trade after entry.

Showing over 100 pip trades


Plus as a bonus when going for over a 100 pips, if your risk is just 50 pips or less that means that each trade is a good risk reward as well.

So overall, it is about trading less, trading on the higher time frames, using only the major supports and resistances for trading levels and then executing only in these areas if price action looks good there. What makes it simple really is that the only change is you.

  1. Great Video – One of the better videos on Forex I have ever seen, I will subscribe and try and learn as much as possible from your website.
    Thanks Timon.

  2. Thanks Tim. This is going to be of great help to me. I am one of those you refer to taking 10-20 pips before of wrong entry and exit.
    Will put this into practice starting from next week.
    have a great weekend.


    • Hey Paul,
      Glad you liked the video, partly it is about looking for overextended areas on the chart as well.. People in Forex in general tend to get in way to early, while it may work sometimes, waiting for better prices always pays in the end, risk wise and reward wise. I mean one only needs to do three 1% trades per month at 3 to 1 risk reward and and if they work out that is an account boost of 9% gain that month just from those three trades..

      In the video above, I go over overextended areas in detail, weekly and daily over extended areas and also fibonacci over extended areas for trading in the trend..


      • Same comment Timon, especially if trading the weekly chart and if the extended zone is very big as is the one in your example of the EUR/USD the SL could be 300 to 400 pips and unless you have a huge account then it is crazy for the average trader who might trade a 1 lot size.
        If you trade a micro account the same thing holds true, as it is relative in terms of your account size. I advise a lower TF for entry on a good signal.

        • Depends on the trader as it is often a trade off, higher time frames offer better probability whereas the lower time frames offer more opportunities and less risk but of course much more losses, so overall it is trade off depending on trader..

          I trade all time frames ranging from 15 minute all the way to weekly chart..

  3. This style of trading is great, if you have a BIG account and can handle BIG stop losses. On a 4 hour chart with large pin bars and/or engulfing candles at the extremes, the SL (allowing for some wiggle room in case the price reversed) could be as high as 80 or more pips and at just 1 lot size, that’s $800 or more. You only need a few of those to scare you right off. In my opinion, it would be better once price has reached the zone, to drop down to a lower TF such as a 30 min and take note of candle formation to see if it gives you an entry at a much lower SL.

    • Yes you can do that, drop down to suit your risk level.. However.. You should only ever be trading 2% of your account ever so if you are getting scared it means you are also risking too much of your account on each trade.. If your account is small divide it to get a comfortable risk..

      My video here covers it..


  4. Many thanks Timon for sending me the above video on 100pips or more strategy, it will be very helpful in my trading but does it means I don’t have to use the daily and the weekly pivot point as my S/R any more? Also how do I subscribe to your weekly forex trading update I once saw on youtube? Great work and thanks once again for sharing this info and looking forward to your Engulfing Trader Strategy in January.

    Best Regards

    • Thanks Jonah, at the moment I have no email alerts for the weekly forecast, however will be setting up something for that in the future. ( You can watch on Youtube until then if you have a youtube account) As for pivots, I do not use them at all, I only use the strongest daily support and resistance zones hand drawn and when trading the trend using broken structure points for next entries in the direction of the trend as it moves in that direction. So two options I use overall both based of structure and both relate to each other and focus on only high probability structure areas on the chart.

      For daily points I go over this in detail in The Engulfing Trader. With structure trend trading I will go over this in detail in future videos. Big Topic and takes time to see on the charts.

      Thanks for your interest in the upcoming product, working hard on it and should be adding purchase options by the end of the week as well. The product may be available as soon as 10th of December.

      Happy Trading.. 🙂

    Man, that gave me some great insight Timon, thanks mate.

  6. Hi Timon,
    Just wondering about something relating to this video. At the end you say not to trade within the grey areas you marked at the top & bottom of the range as one should wait for price to signal which way it’s going. I know every set-up is different but roughly where does this area end? How far away do you wait before entering?


    • Hey Greg,
      The grey zones are rejection zones defined by pins and rejection from previous highs or lows and body closes. So price action in there should be rejection price action of that area.


  7. Roger Blackwell says:

    Hi Timon, When waiting for the price to change trend which time frame is best to observe. Am I right in thinking that the AUS/USD has currently out of range and waiting to come back in this morning. It hit the previous high overnight and has been going sideways for a few hours. I’m expecting to fall back into the range by a fair degree now the geo-political influences have settled down. Roger

  8. Ok thanks mate. I have another question. Hope you don’t mind! This is relating to how you draw your lines on the charts (S/R). I find it difficult sometimes to pinpoint where they should go. I know it’s a zone rather than a specific level, but sometimes the tails of the pinbars make it very difficult. Some people think that the tail should be included when defining the line and some people don’t, preferring to just include the bodies. What’s your take on it?

    All the best,
