All your gain going down the drain, changed your system or what?

I thought you were following the thread.
Yeah I was just testing the day trading system, as you can see the results are not good hahaha.

Don't forget also that I'm using optimal f for position sizing, so my equity curve will be wild!

No I was just testing the day trading strategy. Actually only one trade based on my system lost, that is EURGBP. But don't worry, You will see much more volatility. Remember also that the figures are magnified because its calculating the $2000 as my entire equity. You know since you follow the thread that I'm investing $1000. So if I was up 20%, I was actually up 5%. When I lost all those gains, I actually just lost 5%.

would it not have been more sensible / professional / less open to critique to have a second account for 'trying things' ?? I believe what you say...but the point is so many people who end up losing state midaway after a good start....'was just trying some things' as a cover for actually losing....I can never understand why anyone with a decent system would add 'trial' trades onto that account....so easy to have a second acct and avoids any of these type of questions

That's actually a great point. I think it differs from one trader to the other, but the reason is usually psychological. I felt bored because I wasn't getting any signals.

But I did end up listening to your advice. Now I have a demo account where I try all my none sense hahaha.
