Seems a flash crash on GBP pairs destroyed the account, which is strange as Alpari was fine and there it's 1:400 leverage. Not sure entirely what went wrong here, but it seems RoboForex broker was not the best option.

Fichiers joints:

I checked your system. Maybe it's better to only use USDCAD and EURUSD and also try to get a lower max. account-leverage; 1:1000 is just way too high. I'd recommend to use a max. leverage of 1:500, and then only 1lot per 100k account size (so 0.01lot for 1k account size) to build up your account in a more safe and steady way.

patience is the key

It needs all pairs because there is a correlated hedge on them. One goes in loss other in profit. Leverage is not a problem, but the min. lot size is. Roboforex has 0.1 lot as min, compared to normal where you can trade with micro lot 0.01. I closed 25% of trades at a loss before and we had hedges to keep us going, but since balance went under min. required and lot sizes remained the same it blew on that spike. I'm trading EU/NY session so I wasn't there to monitor it. Not sure though if it would help at all as in such moves platform freezes and no trade is executed anyway.

Anyway, we found a solution to this. We can keep reserves on debit card and transfer to broker's wallet and add funds when such conditions happen and later withdraw once it passes. or use 0.5 risk from start.

There's no need for a 'correlated hedge' of one asset with another asset if one asset is already profitable over a longer time-period.

Leverages and lot-sizes always been a problem in the trading world. A leverage of 1:1000 is just way too high for anyone, especially if you're only allowed to start with 0.10lot and not with 0.01lot.

Don’t worry about this system. You can always use some strategies to improve your trades.

Hi, I have many strategies, but this one works look at Alpari - https://www.myfxbook.com/members/oportunis/irobot/7541175 no problem if you can trade with normal lots and are not limited. Roboforex has this limit, but it should be fine we are trading again there too.

The broker Roboforex has limitations, you can open only 0.1 lot and max 200 trades so it's not performing the best there, but let's see I run it there and it's not performing as good as on Alpari. Time will tell.
