Given the dynamics of price action the past 15 to 30 days we have seen some larger than normal open trade draw downs, however this is not the norm. This system has been run for nearly 3 years, the 2011 forward test is visible on our member page, and we have a 2010 forward test available on another stat web site, and in that time we have only seen small pockets of time where open trade DD hits these levels. Closed trade DD has been kept below 25%.
All systems have there drawn down periods, but in the end the point is scalability and profitability and this system up till now has proven to be both scalable and profitable, but as with all systems we are always looking to optimize it in order to be sure it prospers in all market conditions.
