My name is Lorenzo, I'm not a professional trader, I don't sell eas, I'm just a forex lover just like most of you. I think someone will ask me what kind of ea is this. Obviously it's a Martingale. We all know very well all the big risks behind this strategy, and I'm a little scared trading with such kind of system. But, I would like to understand if there is a quite safe way to trade with a martingale. This is an hedging Martingale exactly, and I'm trying to lower the risk as much as I can trading the minimum lot size 0.01, with a quite big amount of money (now around 10.000 €). Backtest (like you I don't belive very much in backtest, we never know what is going to happen tomorrow, but backtest is one of the few information we have!!) says that trading this ea with 5000 € you would never have had a margin call on eur/usd in the last 5 years. My experience is: trading with 5000 € in two cases I did not receive margin call, but I did not have enough money to open a new order, and I had to wait the retracement, for this reason I increased a bit the account and now it is around 10.000 €. Now I could be able to open 9 orders in the same direction from 0.01 lots to 2.56 lots, I hope it will be enough for now, waiting for an increased account.
