Looks good.. a bit of grid/martingale involved?

There is always this risk involved, perhaps when used on pair that retraces better, then it could perform better, but if there are positions open and the price goes against it like a mini crash then there happens the same like shown. If someone has a same sort of EA but perhaps slightly better in keeping DD lower and want to share i am courious to test.

I have an idea for you.

Do a partial trailing stop on equity. A separate EA that sits there and watches equity, and when the equity falls it starts reducing positions.

But in this case I don't think it's a draw down, more like a catastrophic failure....

Look like a martingale grid system using guide of stochastic.

Which similar to my demo stochastic martin , which you need to chose one side as stochastic indicator normally fail on big trend.

Information is Gold when come to organised.

It was just the price going against my position, here martingale openend max lots in wrong direction hoping for retracement but retracement did not come in time, instead margin call was closing the floating.

Did a backtest with stop on equity, the curve shows a stepperwise line down to zero.

Your stochastic martin is still alive, but do you know if there are martingale type of ea that do not easy fail on big trend?
