@UrbanLejend88, Thank you! Yes. When the market is giving you 6:1 on your second target, that's a very nice risk:reward, so we should take what's there! Another thing you can do is to have a third target that you will reserve for the home-run move... For me, I usually only have two targets with each half of the trade at 0.25% of my account balance which leaves me at 0.50% at risk on any trade I take. My 1st target it always at 3:1 and my second target is usually 5:1, but if I ever have a third target, that will mostly always be 10:1 or greater.

When you can spot those low-risk areas, it's much easier to hit those higher risk:reward areas because you are asking less of the market. Keep up te good work and thank you for following/commenting!
