I don't understund how this DD is calculated.
'lies, damned lies, and statistics'
DD can be calculated in many ways depending which kind of result you wish to have.
And you can even 'cheat' statistics by doing properly timed withdrawals or deposits to your account between open and close of a trade or trades. Only way to see what has been done is to see the account statement!
AFAIK Myfxbook tries to show most realistic (worst) DD in account stats pane but in other places they use different calculations.
To my understanding DD should be calculated from account equity as explained here:https://www.investopedia.com/terms/d/drawdown.asp
But in practise this is impossible because it requires you to have real time access to the account equity to track changes in it.
Myfxbook 5 minute resolution is quite good but not truly accurate.
And people can turn account updating off when they like so statistics could not be updated for the time that is not favourable for them.
All business is based upon trust.
Being Bearish or Bullish Makes No Difference
