Well, for 16.24% average monthly profit you could take a 30% hit every 2 months and still _survive_ with the account 😝

Less effort, better results.

Yes, but depending on where they fell in the trading cycle and whether you were compounding or not it might not be pretty.
If you suffered a 30% drawdown at the end of the two months you would be worse off than when you started if you were compounding.

In fact if you were compounding and managed to get through six months without any drawdown stop losses and you were then unfortunate enough to suffer two 30% drawdowns one closely followed by another - which is actually a lot more likely than getting them spaced apart from each other - you would only be 23% up on your account.

Which admittedly is still a lot better than some investments.

A third 30% drawdown at this stage would leave you down on the account overall.

Looking at the LIVE account since Feb (six month period) - No drawdown has been bigger that 5-6%. In the last week the profit has increased by $161.93 and the drawdown increase by $104.74 ( at this moment ) 😎

...And what is the likelyhood of 3 Black Swans happening as you describe or even 2 for that matter?

That might be because the Greek banking crisis mainly affected EurUsd

GBPUSD and GBPJPY suffered a drop of more than 1000 pips.

Remember, everything affecting EURUSD usually also affects GBPUSD as well, and usually is amplified :) This is due to strong direct correlation between the two pairs (EURUSD and GBPUSD). Also, GBPUSd average daily range (the difference between the daily H and L in pips) is 20% greater than EURUSD. And GBPJPY as and ADR 40% greater than GBPUSD.

May was the best month THANKS to the higher volatility. Crescendo works best in that situations. And for the same reason August has been the worst.

yes it likes high volitility, once you are in this mode you should modify the setting and get it to trade more frequently say 6 hours, then switch off when volitility slows down. Difficult to predict unless some one has any idea how we could see a trend of volitility and have a signal to tell us when its finished and ideas?

Hello Crescendo

Love your work Crescendo....Just a quick question, and that is why have'nt you adjusted your lot size and profit target as recommended in the manual once your account got to 15k.
