So things have not been going too well lately, and that is probably my fault. After noticing 7000 pips to achieve the 5%, I increased the lot sizes from 0.01 to 0.1. I also noticed that the multi-purpose trade manager (MPTM) was only set at 1% take profit, but literally no stop loss. It doesnt look like it actually needed to draw down more than 2%, but it needs some headroom during rollovers and news etc. When I introduced a 1% stop loss with 0.1 lot size - I found this got hit quite regularly.
Today I also updated to version 1b, and I'm running it out of the box 0.01 lot size on all trades.
MPTM settings attached.
I'll try leaving it alone now for the next few months.
