- Top tier broker
- Fully verified account
- No Martingale, Grid, Scalping, Arbitrage strategy
- Monthly profits between 10-30%
- DD as low as possible, never over 15%
For many it might be small percentage gain, but the people who are long enough in this business will know its DD instead of profit which counts in the end.
Please, tell the people who know a lot about this, explain to us that we do not know anything, if the maximum DD will be 15%, why not only open the account with 15% of what they really want to invest, so they do not have 85% of the money stopped uselessly
Sorry! I assumed you were being a smart a** asking this question when you have more than 5 years experience.
Maybe you are sincere in your question? Perhaps you do not realise you need to have available margin beyond the margin your broker requires for your open positions?
The reason is to reduce the risk of a margin call - where the broker will force-close your positions and you may lose your entire account. Please refer:

I am in no position to elaborate. You are also a George Soros compared to me. 😎
man, my question is simple logic, if you say that when you get to 15% of DD, you assume the loss and you retire, because if you continue, you will overcome that 15%, you assure that you will NEVER exceed 15%. margin call or not, you are out, I still think that you have 85% of your investment stop uselessly, I can give you my vision of the market, if I invest x amount of money, my goal is to increase it, I care very much for the money deposited, but, once I have profit, I increase the risk, I do not know about you, I personally do trading to obtain profits, and you do not have gains if you do not take risks, calculated risks, technician enters me, technician closes me oparations, in my personal vision of the market, I have 0% DD, never, I was never below the initial deposit, for myfxbook, I have a DD of 30% I do not share that philosophy, and you believe me, I live on my trading, I trade my money not the others....
Risk comes from not knowing what you're doing.
