Wow, amazing. You have one of the highest sharpe ratios I have seen on this site.


Sharpe ratio is nice indeed but profit vs dd ratio is IMHO not so great

Totally agree with Tomas. The 3:20 MonthyProfit/Max.DD ratio is not the most ideal.

Also, the EQUITY - which is the actual cash value of the account - is at 9.7% gain for the past 8 months, i.e. the NET EQUTIY GAIN has been about 1.2% per month, so the REAL MonthyEquityProfit/MaxDD ratio is even less ideal: 1.2:20.

In other words: one has to accept a 20% DD to gain 1.2% equity per month...

(It is neither 'safe' nor '4%', so why has it been placed in this thread...?)

That's why I was a little surprised. It appears that you can run an account constantly in drawdown yet the Sharpe ratio looks okay or, at least, better than I've seen for a while.

Don't know why some people bang on about Sharpe ratio.

'Safely' 4% a month. Excellent expectations.

All the major banks will hire you soon because they will make 48% a year 'safely' because of you and pay 4-8% to their customers. LOL

It is definitely doable. It does exist. And yes: safely. (And more than just 4% a month...) But such a strategy could not be done successfully at a bank with the monies a bank would typically require from a trader to work with.

check this one https://www.myfxbook.com/community/strategies/orderflow-v3b-20dd/789261,1


Monthly Profit: 4.5%
Max. DD: -21%

Again, the R/R is not the best. Personally I would not trade any strategy with large funds with worse than 1:1 R/R ratio.

As mentioned I would not trade any strategy with large funds with worse than 1:1 MonthlyProfit/MaxDD ratio.

So I would expect at LEAST 21% monthly profit with 21% DD.

The 1:1 R/R is doable for sure.
