My man, there's totally nothing wrong or dumb in doing a 1:1 reward to risk ratio sometimes. I've watched professionals do just that when the probability of success is high. I also do that and win it more than I lose it. What's more important is that you remember to move your stop loss to break even either manually or automatically by trailing the stop. That way,.you play with house's money and when things go south, you get stopped out without losing a dime.
Secondly, 20 pips is too freaking tight for a swing trader. A medium impact news release would snuff out your stops like candle flames. Think 80 - 100 pips. That's what a swing is. It's not how long a trade stays open (alone) that makes it a swing, it also how much breathing space you give the market between your entry and your stops.
Finally, my man, if you're gonna setup a trade that's gonna last a whooping 8-10 hours, you got no business checking out the 5 minute chart. Roll with the 1hr, 4hr and Daily timeframes. Swing traders roll mostly with the daily and 4hr charts.
Finally, finally, if you're a trader at heart, you can't truly quit or suspend yourself . I demo traded 10 years with gaps of several months in between but I never gave up. I'm glad to say I'm a live trader today, and a well educated and productive too.
I wish you many green pips.
