    I voted 50-100 even though that's my begginers value so far. I'm planning to increase the number to over 500. I have been trading for a year and a half.

    80-150€ in average. That's 100-200$ now that the dollar is strong.

    100-500 even though it seems to me that I am playing a dangerous game. I am still almost a newbie.

    To be honest I noticed that smaller values can pay off better than huge. When you lose huge, it brings your confidence down and even worse – you try to win back your losses by trading more and more money without much of a sense and at the end you end up really disappointed. I trade no bigger than 20$ per trade and that works fine for me.

    I almost use low volume so minimum trade amount allowed like 5 or 25. After winning some money I increase bet size

    That's true. You feel much calmer trading with smaller positions. Thus you can leave them develop and often that pays off well. When I risk a lot, I tend to feel scared about my money and I can't leave the position open for longer than a day, which sometimes means closing it OTM.

    Exactly, sometimes you have to leave it for more than a few days or even a week. If it's big, that could make this period very hard for your living.
