If you have to keep depositing money into your investment account just to keep it from getting blown from bad trades, then you are CLEARLY trading badly. Learn to properly trade with a highly regulated brokerage that provides extensive asset protections.
I don't have to, I just want more from my money.
Exactly. You have no desire to learn to actually trade properly.
Consider this two scenarios which is an EA trade for us 100%:
1/ (Setup 4 above 4): profit $37,073 with one or two time the drawdown reach near 56.7% which the traders/investor need to deposit some money to pass through the difficult time (the EA will alert us).
2/ (Setup 7 above): profit $1,831 and the trader/investor just dont have to do anything.
I will pick scenario 1.
You are ignoring reality. Rather than closing out your bad trades, you are just letting them run without any actual understanding of how the markets work.
You assume incorrectly that you can just keep putting money into your account until it turns profitable.
Look at what is really happening with your account ok?
Say for example you have $100,000.00 in your investment account.
You open a series of trades which all go against your account.
You are now at 60% DD because of your currently active bad trades, and you say 'Ok ill just put more money in to cover it.'
Meanwhile, since it is 60% of the account holding bad trades against your capital, you have already lost $60,000.00 if those trades don't turn around soon. But your idea is to just keep adding money so it can be lost as well.
Letting trades go bad and then just letting them run forever to keep getting worse is a very ignorant method of trading.
It shows you have absolutely no real understanding of the markets.
You use NO money management.
You have no real strategy other than 'ok Ill just keep putting money into this dumpster fire, and hopefully it will make me a profit eventually'. That is completely absurd to think that is a good idea.
Stop acting like you have any clue about properly protecting your investment capital and making a profit.
Just throwing gasoline onto a dumpster fire does not make you a firefighter, so why would throwing money away make you a good trader?
Learn to trade properly.
If it looks too good to be true, it's probably a scam! Let the buyer beware.
