You know I tried to use a hedge to put the breaks on a run a way martingale type strategy but I could never figure out when to put it on and what criteria to use to close it down other than a trailing stop. In the end, what I decided to do is to just close the last allowed iteration then start over at the beginning but at twice the lot size. Half goes to recover the losses and the other half is my current profits. After the entire recovery balance has been cleared, the EA shifts back to single size trades. So we use a martingale type recovery for the first 7 or 8 iterations then use the long recovery if it happens to go over the limit.
If you have figured out how to hedge a recovery sequence like that, I duff my hat to you sir, I never could.
