Happy to comment...I agree, and of course I have been pretty worried since the USD fell significantly against most currencies at the same time as the AUD shot up...other charts were affected too, but AUD/USD was by far the biggest concern. Any straight Martingale system would have lost all my money for definite, but as the FFR system allows you to set the maximum string length now, which I had set to the default of 10, it still gives me some scope for recovery.
It has been correctly pointed out earlier in this thread that any Martingale-based system have an inherent weakness in that if currencies Trend it can mean it doesn't bounce back before your money runs out. At least with FFR I was able to set a backstop to the loss so it only traded 10 times. This is the biggest chart movement I have seen on Forex for some time, with the chart reaching 29 year highs, and I still have a chance of recovery. I am at the mercy of the USD, but I understand that this is unavoidable when trading Forex as the USD is by far the most traded currency.
I am trying all the time to learn from what is happening in the markets and to be safer I will reduce my maximum trades down to 9 as a first step...FFR does give you the power to influence the outcome and control the risk, but events like this do test your default settings. Still keeping my fingers crossed that the AUD doesn't continue to rise to even higher record levels.
