Hey all!...What is a good monthly return/drawdown limit ratio target?

Hi, I am setting up some targets for my PAMMs accounts and I was wondering what should be my drawdown limit and my monthly return target.

My default setup is 1:1 ratio, but I have no ideas what investors are looking for.
Any ideas?

Best,

Gustavo

Keep doing what you are doing and you will have a lot of clients. Your performance is what investors are looking for!

I love taking risk with the right returns.

I agree, your results are what clients will look at...you should have a set draw down % that would 'trigger' so to speak at say 30-40% (just an example) after that point clients have the choice to keep trading or withdrawal their funds... that's how the big boys do it.

As for a % per month...I tried this on my personal account and it had a negative affect as I was aiming for a goal which didn't always work because market conditions are not the same month to month. I found myself forcing trades that I should not have been in...as for your PAMM account this will save you from a client saying 'Hey you said 10% PMG, you only did 5% last month what's up?'

Just my 2 pips worth

I agree with you OnTheEdge,

In fact, the drawdown/target return ratio is only an idea of what investos should expect. It is just like the sharpe index.
I am thinking of having three different products. One conservative, one moderate and one aggressive so investors will have the opportunity to choose between them, as I work with a single strategy and what differs one from another is just leverage.
