What about strategy of setting stop losses depending on deposit size or equity? Is there some guide for this trading aspect?

That's generally a bad idea. Your stop-loss should depend on the market conditions (chart levels, fundamental factors, sentiment analysis, etc.), and the position size should depend on the stop-loss. Not vice versa.

Generally I have ideas about direction where the market will go, but not about the size of the move. What should I do in this case?

A gambler (who believes they are always right) will want to bet the maximum their wallet will stand

With that in mind, I created an equation based on current market conditions that calculates the absolute maximum bet size currently available ... I then decide what percentage of that I want to risk

If you bet with pennies you will only ever win pennies

Based on the close of the market on 08/12/2023 for US500

£24 Capital
Max available 0.10/point (min for this broker)

£50 Capital
Max available 0.20/point

£100 Capital
Max available 0.40/point

£500 Capital
Max avalable 2.10/point

£1,000 Capital
Max available 4.30/point

£10,00 Capital
Max available 43.30/point

£23,250.00 Capital
Max available 100.00/point (max for a retail trader) ... (professional trader can bet upto 500/point)

Starting with 0.10/point and making 30 points a day in 60 days you could be betting 100.00/point

Don't believe it ... check out [URL deleted]Tom Hougaard who made a million before Christmas BUT lost 90k on Boxing Day :(
