Your stop loss size doesn’t reduce your risk percentage.
You can risk 5% of a $10,000 account in various ways, it just depends on your appetite for risk (per pip) at the moment. You can be comfortable with a 100 pip SL on a certain pair but will need 500pips on another, thus you risk the same 5% but with different lot sizes.
So: Small Lot * Extra Wide Stop = Risk Percentage
and Big Lot * Tighter Stop = (same) Risk Percentage
Bottom line, @The_Baller doesn’t have to adjust his risk per trade, just the things that add up to it.
I hope this clears it up, if not, we’re lucky to have people with more experience to better explain.
