Ok I'm going to share my account. My goal is to be here in 5 years still rocking.
Been trading a little over 5 months.
I have a mixture of using an EA and Manual trading.
I'm in drawdown all the time so have gotten a bit more comfortable with that, but my strategy requires small lot sizes for my account size because in big market moves it will end up in high drawdown and swap fees if I carry trades over nights, or weeks.
Anyways this is a real account.
can you achieve the same results with one of the regulated and known brokers like IcMarkets, Oanda, Pepperstone, etc?
Not sure. I've not looked at those brokers.
Being in the US it's harder to get setup with brokers who have 500:1 leverage and allow use of EAs.
If those brokers offered that kind of leverage and could use EA then I don't see why it would be any different.
The problem is in general with 'unknown' brokers that the results cannot be trusted. I don't say that yours cannot be trusted, they look ok, but in general many people fake their accounts with dodgy brokers to get results looking excellent (e.g. 1% DD and 30% profit per month). which are obviously unrealistic and forged.
therefore my question.
your results do not look unrealistic, I think they are real. if they would be forged, you would do them better looking for sure ;-)
