I think that as a pair oscillates, drawdown like that will have to be a consideration as well as a common occurance. And I believe the primary reason why Greg recommends such a high balance before increasing the DivideRate variable.
I have been reading many blogs and MyFxBook accounts where the account have been blown up by this strategy. It is VERY important that the account have the proper balance and dividerate settings for this strategy. Based on emails back and forth with the GSSE team and Greg, here is a chart I have come up with. This shows what the dividerate setting should be for a given account size. All based on my results thus far.
It also will show you size of the order this strategy will open IF the first trade goes against you. It is not quite a martingale, but it will open increasingly larger size orders and will adjust TP for ALL orders in a given direction with the result being an overall gain with less and less price movement. I am not sure what the table will look like once I hit 'send' but I would be happy to email you the complete spreadsheet. So if you have questions, feel free to ask.
I don't know why - but MYFXBOOK is showing a -16% gain for this month so far. That makes no sense as I have not had a losing day since I started. Look at the PROFIT -BALANCE - DRAWDOWN tabs on the main chart. They seem to be right. Why would the GROWTH chart drop?
Greg - If you read this, feel free to make any comments on it.
So far so good. You had the luck that gbusd was going south and stopped the rallye. A strong trend is deathly for Gregs system. For all grid systems. In the last week I a got a call from a firm in USA with work together with Greg. I don´t know, what they wanted. Because my english is bad and spoken american english I cannot understand. Souds like frog under water in my ears.
SO it appears that myfxbook bases its growth solely on pips. As we had an overall gain the other day, the only thing that was negative was the pip count. MyfxBook may not be the best place to represent Gregs Signals. Anyone have other ideas as to a place to post result that is more accurate?
