Hi TradyDave (or should I say ChattyDave? ;))
You were asking about 'tuning'. Well, whenever I see 50% per month growth on MyFXBook
I am expecting a BIG correction to take away profits - just has been my experience. You may
luck out in the short term - take the money and run, as it were - but I feel with ALOT of Equity
and slower growth, I'll be able to slept at night - and stay in the game longer or permanently...
So, when the Monthly growth gets to the 50% area, I'll back off on the multiplier, thereby dropping
the Lot size. With a Cent account, one can micromanage this more precisely - if your only choice
is down to MicroLot, you can't go much smaller. But on a Cent account you can deal in 1/10th of
a MicroLot. Get the idea?
I'll draw out some actual numbers next week. And, that account was only a Demo, so, not to worry.
-but I was hoping for a longer forward test.
Speaking of which, I mentioned I'm moving my Forward tests to my VPS platform - which is run by
Mike Wilson at engineered-solutions.us . I believe, it's the finest VPS system and support available.
Not cheap, but he's an honest, hard working and dedicated programmer/engineer (and Forex trader!)
Waant aal, lose aal, man...
