Guys, The chart looked pretty, but this drawdown was inevitable. You cant have an average loss 2x your winner. You will ultimately lose money. It means that you need to have 2 winners for very loser just to break even.
You would be better off talking fewer winners and managing your losses. A robust trading system should have the average winner greater than he average loser. If the w/l ratio was in reverse and focused on having each winner 2x each loser, then you would have a sustainable profitable system. 30% drawdown is unsustainable and will happen again using the current methods.
A small change in the w/l % will cause you to lose money under the current system. Everyone looks for the Holy Grail. Well, here it is. Focus on the average winner being greater than the average loser. Thats the Holy Grail. If your average winner was 2x your average loser, you would only need to have 33% winning trades to break even.
