Oh yes, you are right, I didn't even notice that before! 0.14 lot size for a normal trade, but the trade following a loss is at 0.98! 😲
Yes, I did the same, for both Asia and for 41799. Asia was disqualified for about a week before he made a return! With 41799 though they told me it was still within their acceptance criteria, which I find a bit bizarre, but anyway.
I think the problem is related to open vs closed DD - you can have a system with a balance of $1000, open a trade which goes negative by 95%, then recovers and closes for a 5% loss. The DD will show as 5% on the stats, not the fact that it was down 95% - that is why it is always important to look at the equity curve and the balance vs. equity at times of DD.
