FxMasterGuru, which system are you commenting on?
I will assume that it was mine because it is not the 4% that someone wanted but I was only pivoting off of the quoted comment, wait, I'll do it again
'There is no such fully automated system exits for selling for long term consistent gain.'
Notice how the comment was not 'There is no such fully automated system exits for selling for long term consistent gain - over 4%.' If someone is making provably wrong statements, doesn't it behoove us to try to at least prove them wrong? Or is it your contention that we should leave erroneous and misleading statements go unchallenged because our proofs are outside the general topic area?
Anyone can get 4%, I certainly can but the higher the return, generally the higher the risk. I don't care how much someone can make, only in how much he can keep. Of course when I set up my programs it is to verify the safety aspect not trying to hit some arbitrary profit figure, that's a rookie mistake. Now look at how long I have been on this forum, you post more than I do but I've been around for a while, is it logical that I would hang around here for all these years trying to sell a program intended for investors to a trader?
So someone wants programs that are greater than 4%, generally we call that greed and would normally try to steer the newbie away from that thinking but someone may already have a program that makes 3.5% and only wants to talk about better ones. How could I know how to make that kind of determination? So we try not to jump to assumptions and ask questions, hmmm, it seems like that is a no loss system, what's it used for? Then no one feels like they are being belittled for being different.
However, 4%, lets prove what I just said,https://www.myfxbook.com/members/ForexAssistant/passive-income-generator/685841
Another straight liner. 1.95% a month average, if you understand feathering into a position, you will understand how it functions. This is the worst draw-down that I have seen since we started, in June of last year, and it's currently 13.57%
Note that the lowest trade size started at .01 lots. If we forced the starting lot size to be .03 then our draw-down would be 3 X 13.57% < 45% and our average monthly profits would be 1.95% X 3 = 5.85% which is greater than the 4% required and still somewhat safe but not safe enough for me. None the less, I believe that I have proven my point.
