Hmm, over 50.000$ I guess. I started this as a student, which pretty much means no risk capital at all :) Done now, but I had to buy a car first...etc etc, you know how it goes. Slowly feeding cash into the system on a monthly basis now though.

I see Martingale at work: on 8/12 you had a basket of 7 trades opened in an interval of little over 1 hour. If you are using a global stop loss, and the system still performs, ok, but even then I would be extra cautious with it. What if USDCHF would not have retraced?

Well spotted! If it hadn't retraced it would have stopped out at -15$, causing a loss. I've been trying to find a decent balance between taking profits and stopping out, I've found that these work best when you calculate them seperately per pair. For now I'm doing this through optimization with overlapping backtests (5x random periods of about 4 years 99% tick data) then using SPSS. This works but is quite a chore! I'm working on doing this dynamically while trading so the system decides it's own stoploss based on x previous candles on x timeframe, I want to try and take volume into account as well but that'll take a while to figure out :)

Thanks for the details. I tried several systems which used Martingale and also a stop out, and I agree with what you are saying. Good luck improving your system! 😄
