I am a less than five years trader. I have tested many strategies and robots. thousands of grids and technical methods. I found some profitable manual strategies from some big traders but that was not convinced me to stop learning. They needs lots of analysis and huge times to evaluate and monitor the market. So, I shifted on automated systems. There are many scams EAs in the market. Finally, I decided to work on a specific grid method which can provide me a constant profit with a low DD%. I dont want to say this is the best, but at least gives me a constant , admirable profit. The grid is based on a strong math calculator, and it does not matter the market has a strong trend or in the range. You may see lots of reds in the open trades but at the end of day, you can enjoy the increase of your capital. The equity may decrease but the total value show a constant profit which is the goal of this strategy. Lets see what will happen in the future. You can follow me to analyze the results.

Good Luck all !!!

@mehdi343
you account last for like 2 weeks.
After 3 months or more you can tell if it works or not.

You can't really say a strategy is currently working without at least three months of data - backtest and than forward test.
Maybe it will be alive after some months, who can tell, why are we discussing it?

Do some backtest, you can post results and talk about if you like. And then do at least three months forward testing if the backtest is promising.

You can't say a strategy will work in any temperament and condition. EVERY strategy has to adapt to the market, often in few months to a couple years. Nothing in the market is constant

Well, grid trading is surely possible. Possible outcomes of this strategy is completely different question 😁

Assuming you don't understand, that fact that you 'think' you are should be a sign that you are in fact, not.

here are some links that come up in google when you search for 'grid trading'

Tried different types of manual trading as well as algo Trading. It looks like a similar concept called asset millipede. A shotgun approach to currency trading hmm. Over trading is the death of most new traders. And this sounds like a good recipe for overtrading to me.
“Life is short, break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that makes you smile. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” Mark Twain

It's not difficult to identify the range market,
See USDCHF.
  USDCHF pair is trading in the range since two years, the grid will work till the pair is in range.

and see all currency with chf.

You can't outbank a fat tail long term. It's impossible. Don't do grids.

@benchmarkpro

You not given up yet Zero ? I told you you couldn't do this. Why on earth all these years later are you still buggering around with grids ?
