We log the maximal drawdown. Drawdown is calculated using several ways:
(1) logging of drawdown at each account update.
(2) calculation of balance drawdown
(3) calculation of equity drawdown based on historic prices (end of day)
The highest figure out of the above methods will be the one showing as the drawdown value, while drawdown chart shows end of day values.
Thanks for your response. But what I'm looking at is quite frightening. On my main page, it says the system drawdown is 7.01%, but in the charts window, underdrawdown, it says that my most recent drawdown is 45.97%.
Do you think you could have a look at this for a moment for me ? Does the fact that my trading account is a mini account (10,000/lot) instead of a standard account (100,000/lot) make a difference ?
