IXBONE posted: -funny! i do not sell any system, so i must NOT have a track record! -successful traders have open minds to integrate new trading technics-only the 'old school' sl only guys will loose in the long!!! run. -fyi: i trade pure pa since 15 years, no indicators, no lines, nothing- OHLC only!, I was a inflexible SL guy till 2008 too, all my yearly profit was lost in 1 minute. Since i do not use sl anymore only other technics like async hedges, percentage allocations, brownian motion, stochatic processes (financial mathematics) and so on and yes i use different versions of martingale like open, stretched, double stretched, 1-3-2-4 with success too.
ps: using sl is not the one and only way to manage orders with negative profit, there are many other 'soft' ways to recover open negative trades, using sl is the hard way and realize the loss!
it seems you mix up money management,trading strategy and trade management. Loosing years of Profits in 1 minute is not a fault of using a stopploss, its simply overleverage.
I dont want to dismiss your progress and think it is good that you are open minded, so you might be interested in this:
(its one of the most professional trading plans i found so far)
Anyway my question for trackrecord was aimed that you can proof your claims.
