   Ok perhaps you will get that. Only if you open your account balance up so we can see how much money you've doubled. Also being able to see your trade history would be great, so at least we can see if what you said about your break even was actually true.


There is nothing for me to prove in regard to a specific trade on my account.

The overall account stats are what matters.

Gain: +125.31%
Abs. Gain: +125.31%
Daily: 17.64%
Monthly: 10879.57%
Drawdown: 50.17%

The 50.17% drawdown is obviously something that can be improved upon. This was due to neglecting to have my break even level monitor running on the chart.

Had it have been running, the pairs would have closed out before the draw down would have happened.

No harm done however, as the pair was in a retrace and the trade ended up positive as intended.

Focusing only on the fact that I had a 50% DD is pointless and serves no useful purpose.

It was a mistake that I made, I acknowledge it, and it shouldn't have happened, however you also have an account which has a greater than 50% DD.

What can be learned from this? To make sure the break even points are set before walking away from ones trading terminal.
However, given the fact that the trades pretty quickly returned to profit, it's not something I'm actually concerned about any longer as that is in the past. I've moved on from it, and I am focusing on future entry points.

 The dd% is the most important part of the trading. As it reveals much about your system. I don't see why everything has to be private, but oh well, you obviously have something to hide. Thank you for providing us with your stats which doesn't reveal anything at all.

dd% isn't that important.

The DD is higher than normal because I made a mistake when trading, and forgot to set the breakeven levels.
It's not that big of a deal honestly. The profitability of the account is of greater importance.

Double the account in 6 weeks. I did it in 3 days.
My account is verified and validated.

Because my individual trades and account levels aren't important for this discussion.
The thread subject is in regard to doubling an account in 6 weeks. I did it in 3 days.

The specific details for my trading strategy is in fact none of your business.

So yes, I am keeping the trades hidden from you. They aren't relevant to the thread topic.

As for not revealing anything at all, there is quite a bit of useful information on the stats page.

Yes yes, I know I had a 50% DD. I clearly stated I did. It isn't a secret.
I was trading heavy and didn't have my break even set.
Thus a retrace had a larger than normal impact.
The trades worked out fine and I'm in a solid profit for the week.
It was my fault, I learned from it, what's your point here?

As for your account....

Your account has a 53% DD Amber_Kiwa, thus Your argument is null and void.

 My argument isn't null and void, because my stats, such as my account value etc isn't private. You already have a history of blowing accounts. Last time you blew 5k for over leveraging and with this account you've done it again. With only 3 days of trading history it would suggest that trading is more like lottery to you then anything else. And instead of mastering your craft, you are here trying to attract attention when you clearly aren't transparent with the public.

Actually it is quite null and void. You have a greater than 50% DD on your own account.

You have a 53% DD on your account and yet you want to find fault with mine. 'awesome'.
Also as for transparency. I'm not the one hiding behind multiple user names.

Yes I have 3 days of trading history on the account, with well over 100% gain in the account.

I never blew any previous account. Prove I did. Show me the proof. You can't. There is none. Because it never happened.

I just got sick of your constant negative attitude towards everyone, and your constant attempts to find fault where there is none, so I took a couple of weeks off from arguing with you.

However I am not trying to bring up the past.

Let's talk about the here and now.

I have my live account posted, you can see the relevant stats on it.

My account currently has a positive +126.98% gain with 18 out of 18 trades winning.
That a 100% accuracy for my trades.

Your constant attacks of the community members is of little value and has no useful purpose.

So why don't you stop with your pedantic and pedestrian attitude towards everyone, and try to be a little more polite and discuss how to trade in a profitable manner. You've boasted on a number of occasions about being able to get 500% or more in a short period of time. How about a useful discussion of how that can be done?

AmberLynn,

Rather than continue with useless arguments, how about a useful discussion.

For the purpose of this discussion, let's use an account with $5,000.00 as the starting deposit balance.
And the goal is to generate a 500% gain in profits over a short period of time.

How would you do this? What strategy would you use? Details of how it could be reasonably and safely done?
