It is expected to have a running drawdown for the lifetime of the system operation. Profits\losses are realized on closed trades. Closed trades broke the 24% mark for one year.

The positions in drawdown recover after some time going positive and others may then be in drawdown.

That's how it tested and performed prior to the live account. As it is behaving the same live, am I quite happy with the results and consider it a successful launch.

Might you have some good examples of your trading to view and discuss?

Always looking to learn. Thanks in advance.

Such system does not make any sense.
If you invest lets say 10,000 and keep 2,500 in open loosing positions forever it is like loosing that 2,500 as you cannot withdraw them nor trade them.

You are always in a huge drawdown...closing winners for a few pips and letting the losers run for a long time...all I see is a gambling account.


Thanks for the feedback and your opinion. The live results are almost identical to back testing and demo. A running drawdown was expected.


Good to see someone that takes 'negative' feedback and disparaging comments in a positive manner. With an attitude like yours, I'm certain you will succeed one way or another.

Each to their own strategy/system. Don't ever let the losers (trades and people) bring you down! 😎

HODL as applied to forex. Well done so far, sir! 😁



What are you talking about? It has been a year since the account started and the account hasnt made any money. In fact the equity is is at about -2%. How can you say well done if there has been no profit for a year? If you believe what you said, you have very low standards...


Your assessment of his performance is clear and true. I appreciate your perspective.

However, I support his positive attitude to criticism and his valiant efforts. Also, has he not been 'successful' in other respects? Success is not always measured in 'dollars profit' but many other metrics: 'dollars lost' for example, and consistency another.

You may consider I have low standards - perhaps low standards is what one requires to survive? You cannot always have high expectations or you will always be disappointed. I consider I have gratitude that his account has lasted as long as it has.

He is also successful in fulfilling the criteria better than many other attempts in this thread:

1) The account must be real - no demo's. (please do not argue here that it is the same as a live acc. etc - the idea is not to engage in any arguments)
2) The account must be verified (please do not come and defend your unverified-but-want-to-participate account - there will simply be no interest)
3)DD must not be higher than 40% - (please. Once again. No justification for your above 40% dd, if it is higher - don't participate)
4)The account must be older than 3 months, maybe this is even still too young.
5)No martingales! (it might work for you, and I do not want to engage in an argument - just please keep to yourself and don't participate)

And on those points he deserves to be congratulated don't you agree? 😉
The 'wooden spoon' for profits; gold medal for everything else. 😄

Thanks for your opinion.

I consider it the DD cost of doing business. If you open a restaurant, you have to buy stoves, refrigerators, food, etc. Then you make a profit beyond your sunk costs.

I don't mind that position for the consistency of returns.

- Top tier broker
- Fully verified account
- No Martingale, Grid, Scalping, Arbitrage strategy
- Monthly profits between 10-30%
- DD as low as possible, never over 15%

For many it might be small percentage gain, but the people who are long enough in this business will know its DD instead of profit which counts in the end.

Please, tell the people who know a lot about this, explain to us that we do not know anything, if the maximum DD will be 15%, why not only open the account with 15% of what they really want to invest, so they do not have 85% of the money stopped uselessly

Risk comes from not knowing what you're doing.

With results such as mine, how else can I contain my praise for his performance?
He is a George Soros compared to me - a modern-day alchemist! 😁

Give credit where credit is due. He deserves some respect (I can hardly say the same for myself).

NB. This is NOT a profitable account (yes, wrong thread for this account)

Sorry, the way I read your question seemed like you were being a smart arse. Please improve your English skills to prevent such a misunderstanding.

Maybe you are sincere in your question? Perhaps you do not realise you need to have available margin beyond the margin your broker requires for your open positions?

The reason is to reduce the risk of a margin call - where the broker will force-close your positions and you may lose your entire account. Please refer:

Link 2: https://www.investopedia.com/university/margin/margin2.asp

I am in no position to elaborate. You are also a George Soros compared to me. 😎
Your results are amazing, considering your lack of knowledge and yet many years' experience. I am honestly impressed. You are a born trading prodigy. Congrats to you also sir! 😎
