Your balance is $12,889 DD is 10.09% (in myfxbook)
Therefore, If I copy with $4,000 fund. Will my calculation correct at this point as; My DD will become 32.5% ? [Question #1]
Due to $4,000 is 3.22 times of your balance $12,889. From your history records, Your smallest Lot size is 0.01, majority typical Lot size is 0.02, biggest Lot size is 2.0
Normal trading Lot size is 0.02, If I copy with $4,000 initial fund in Signalstart, setting same risk with Provider, 100% ratio. Your 2.0 Lot, 1.0 Lot, 0.50 Lot, 0.35 Lot all will be copied in my trades are divided by 3.22 as 0.62 Lot, 0.31 Lot, 0.15 Lot, and 0.1 Lot.
For your 0.02 Lot will be minimum copied as my 0.01 (no way to copy smaller than 0.01). Most of your trades are 0.02 (over 60% are). Therefore, I will copy as 0.01 (about 60%).
Will it means $4,000 fund will generate DD very high like $16.25%
Provider $12,889 -------> DD: 10.09% (it is floating negative -$1,300)
Receiver $4,000 --------> DD: 16.25% (It is floating negative -$650) Floating negative -$650 due to copying your trades with minimal 0.01 Lot szie. 50% less Lot from your trades. [Question #2]
I am sorry to ask strange questions. I wish you are willing to answer me and solve my doubt. Much appreciate.
Thank you for your questions. Yes, you are absolutely right, theoretically it is. But your DD may be higher than mine because of big differences in deposit amounts. Your account will get quite incorrect order size allocation, when we deal with min. size 0.01.
