Dangerous and misleading drawdown calculations Discussion
 Member Since Oct 27, 2009  15 posts scalpguy Nov 25 2011 at 10:19 When are you going to fix up the drawdown calculations?By calculating the DD only at the point of closing the positions is deadly wrong ! Between the open and close time the position can be allmost wiped out and still you show the DD risk for example only 2.5% :) This is VERY MISLEADING !Calculations must be done continuously during the time when positions are open. By doing this you can also provide another important values such a 'MAE' and 'MFE'.Everything else in your service is EXCELLENT and usable. Thank you very much for providing this kind of service.SG Member Since Feb 11, 2011  440 posts rob559 Dec 22 2011 at 21:38 I THINK YOU ARE CONFUSING DD AND FLOATING Member Since Apr 30, 2011  10 posts scls19fr Jun 04 2012 at 14:10 Hello,I also found that calculatingMAE(Maximum Adverse Excursion) and MFE(Maximum Favourable Excursion) could be very usefulThere is 2 way to calculate MAE / MFE : on client side or on server sideMaybe the Myfxbook EA could calculate MAE and MFE and publish it on the websiteor as scalpguy said calculate it on the server side.I see that Mt4i has MAE MFE graphThey say MAE/MFE data is approximate but I don't know if they get this value on MT client side or on the server side.After getting MAE/MFE you could drawMAE_pips = f(outcome pips)MAE_pips = f(MFE_pips)MAE_pips = f(MFE_currency)You could also draw a kind of candlestick plotEach clandlestick is a tradeopen = 0close = outcome_pipsmin = MAEmax = MFEI also consider that floating operation should be considered.Regards Please login to comment.
