why would it? if he traded the same way but at 5% he would be richer. the system hasn't changed just the risk.

dude you win rate you could make that 1000% better if you increased you risk 5% a trade. man up.

That would blow the account easily... 1% is sustainable without mental / emotional issues with the trade

1% or 5% risk, what it really matters is that your accuracy or 'batting average' is really high. Then you decide how much to risk from your account and how fast or slow you want to go. Do this on Demo, though, dont experiment with real money until you have good results.

Thats how it is done, you have to keep it steady and consistent, even if it is 1% or 100% gains, but the goal is to keep it consistent.

Sure, it is possible to get some consitent periods with all Martingale or Grid strategies... The only question is how long will the winning streak last before hitting a major (i.e. devastating) DD...

FxMasterGuru - you are entitled to your opinion, but it's not a grid or martingale system. Yes we do hedging to break even where we have not got the trade right and yes sometimes that leads to a draw down until the trade resolves at BE. A few times we have just closed at a loss to avoid endangering the account. If it's not your cup of tea fine, just posting it on here for people to look at - not really claiming to be an expert or anything.

I dont think it really matters what system are you using if you are getting consistent profits, but do be aware that markets evolve, trends change, short term and longer term. Therefore, with martingale systems or any other system you have to be attentive for when the markets change their trend, speed, momentum and volatility on different time spans.
