This method of protection on the market really requires special attention, because it is a classic format, which has many interpretations. And it can be adapted according to the strategy and the size of the capital. So it can be interesting.

I agree with you, I have tried many strategies that are based on the martingale and it is clear that one of the secrets is to have a correct operating margin, so it is advisable to correctly analyze the trading strategy with this method. Regards.

Until I came across this setting of more than +35000 trades simulated on a five year period that resulted in 500% gain with as little as 7% drawdown. Please find attached screenshot. Is Martingale sustainable, or it is just a series of good luck??

I'm sure this is an incorrect test, without conditions close to real ones. Even judging by the quality of the history.

One strategy, whatever it may be, will not work in the long run. But an array of many strategies have the right to exist, even if they are martingale-based systems.

Your reasoning seems right and interesting to me.
But in general, it is difficult to imagine that it can be used on a permanent basis. Or maybe I just haven't met a suitable analysis strategy for it.

Fun fact, the more you trade, the higher the probability of consecutive losing.

Even with 50% probability, risk of 6 consecutive trade stands at approx 25% for a total of 60 trades.

Martingale for 6 times? Do you have that capital to do it?

My opinion is that as you say the Holy Grail does not exist, but the martingale system can be used for small lots, otherwise you may lose your account.
I also don’t believe in Holy Grail in trading. However, if anyone give a martingale strategy with 5% gain monthly in best test I would appreciate.

Hi, i was use martingale strategy when i start trading, it is profitable for fast income if you know how to use it.
1. you must withdraw all profit every week.
2. never trade in monday and friday.
3. after every 3 days change ea comment and name, because broker have anti martingail plugins.
4. every time if you deposit like 1000usd after firs earn 1000usd keep it, if you blow account you have money to start again.

p.s. beter find some ea who not use martingaile, but have good money management.
In forex don't exist grail, just if you want mean grail is 5% in year like in bank.
Yes, you are right. Very well said. It will help all the new traders who have doubt on it.
