I believe a successful trader should switch systems between time. Market changes all the time. No one system in the world will be profitable at any market condition. That's the reason why there r so many trading system going around. When a system won't work ( as the profit is going down month after month like fgb in year 2013). It's time to change.

its been god like in the start. but take a look at its performance for yr 2012 and 2013. its failing . and those who hope that it will bounce back. how are you so sure of that? because backtest told you so? wake up.. the choice is yours, continue to suck in more DD, or switch to a systems that works for current market condition. open a weekly or daily EURUSD chart and take a look. how the market look like in the pass and this 2 years. thats explain everything.

FGB is dead

Naw the problem is the sizing. It began with % risk that increased the lot size when its winning, decrease when its losing. Now its trading fixed size with many times the original positions without decreasing size. As anyone who's ever worked in a casino will tell you, using bigger positions after multiple losses than when you started is a common strategy to lose money.

As an example, even in 2012. It still had positive pip gain from the beginning to end of the year. In fact most investment funds underperformed as well because of lack of volatility that year. And if any of you were watching this account last year, Draghi did the same thing to FGB during his press conference too. Heck the loss in pure pips was even worse last time bc FOMC occurred right before that.

The only reason this latest drop is more dramatic is because it traded with bigger lots which resulted in bigger losses.

What you should learn from this experience is to switch off FGB when FOMC and eu rate decisions are approaching.

unfortunately CPR only works on some humans; it does not work on strategies.

I wish FGB would automatically downsize when its account is at a certain level....regardless of the position sizing, I look at the number of pips gained in the long run and so far, FGB is still waaay ahead in pips gained since inception despite this horrible month..

Not bad overtime. At least a system with a higher avergae win than loss (most of the time other way around and risky MM, regardsless of winratio). But I don't like the big drawdowns.
We are concentrating on EURUSD to with our signal service. We want to achieve a stituation where the dd is lower than the monthly gain.. Then you have a superb system. Wish us luck, or in the mean time take a free trial! ;-)

Happy trading to everybody!
