Hello,

It is connected with suggestion https://www.myfxbook.com/community/suggestion-box/not-suggestion-but-question/10034,1

Similar issue. I had 33% drawdown but in the time when account balance was 1 pound. It is not relevant to current account balance.

So, I think adding 'Abs. drowdown' measure below 'Drowdown' would be good idea :)

Kind regards,
kurak

Drawdown is referenced to the complete trading history, hence the 33% drawdown. You can set a custom start date which will take into account the traded period and will recalculate the drawdown accordingly.

Thanks for the suggestion!

Sounds like an EA vendors dream.
