This account showing the strategy that we are using on our managing accounts. All orders are 0.1 lot no MoneyManagement is used. So don't pay any attention on statistics shown in %, as its not accurate.

Balance curve would be the same as Cumulative pips curve. The actual balance of client's account would depend on the MoneyManagement settings. We recommend to use 2% per trade risk. Using this strategy with 2% per trade risk, annual Return on Investment (ROI) could be ~100%.

Maximal DrawDown at the moment is ~10%, but we think that in some period maxDD could reach ~30%. Such result could be if there will be 3-4 unsuccessful trading weeks in a raw. Strategy is capable to climb out of such DD in 1-3 months.

We are testing at the moment some modifications to our strategy, to reduce DD amount and possibility. It will optimize the performance as well, and the balance curve will be more smooth.
Don't risk more then 2% with one trade!

Let me know if there is a new modification that will reduce the DD.

Well done.

Excellent so far.

I will follow you, but it seems quite robust so far, makes money in favorable market conditions, goes sideways if unfavorable, awesome, I wish you luck in your climb to the top, You are the one to for me to beat, I think the other guys at the top with EAs will beat themselves.

But I do not understand why you do not show the actual managed account? Do you do your managed accounts 'account copier' style? It would be nice to see the actual managed account on here. I have seen Money Management make or break accounts many times over.

1 pip pip banked is worth more than the rest out in the market.

Thanks for the positive post :)
I do show actual managed account, just click on my username and you will see all my accounts. One of my clients account are 'TadawulFX henrikas'.

Of course I manage more than one account, but not all clients do let me post it, others has not accurate statistics, because performance fee is paid from trading account, or there was past trading before me(not new account), or i'm not the only trader who trades the account etc. So this (TadawulFX henrikas) account are showing the real performance.

I manage directly attaching the EA to each account's chart. I've tried account copier solutions, but because i use scalping strategy, every pip are very important, and when using copiers, there are always a chance to loose pips on opening and closing position. So the actual clients performance could be very different from master account.

Hi Baraban,

What I meant was a PAMM managed account, you know you can attach an EA to your MT4 with a PAMM account and everyone else's account follows right? You only need to have one instance of MT4 running to manage thousands of accounts. Also your fee comes right off the top of each trade, the brokerage itself deals with distribution. Also, everyone gets filled at the same price, because it is traded as a lumped aggregate.

Is 2 pips on the Euro and 3 pips on the other majors too big a spread for your trading style?

Thats the main problem, that NOT everyone gets filled at the same price. I'm scalping in low liquidity market, with target 4-5 pips. The requests are sent simultaneously, but some of them get requote/slippage on opening and/or closing. Thats why I manage directly each account on separate terminal. But i'm looking for software that will solve this problem, and will meet my needs, as i get more clients.
At the moment I can say that strategy works well on TadawulFX (Standard) account spreads, and Alpari UK (Classic). Its not about spreads, but price feed are making sense too. As for example one of my client has FXSalt account, spreads are low (ECN with commision), but EA doesnt trade a lot. So we can say that its broker dependent. It could sound crazy for those who trade with with more than 30pips TP targets, but its a reality for scalpers. Once i've tested on MBCFX DEMO and it was very good results, but this broker isnt seems reliable to me.

I dont see any reason why performance should fall, as accounts increase. How it will affect my strategy? i think, that there are practicly no limits...
