Hi all, sorry dear seniors. Mind if I ask what is MartiGrid?
I use the custom analysis as I just started as an actual full time trader on 11.11.2015. You guys can feel free to check back my past history. It wasn't good those were the time when I was 21

MartiGrid = Grid strategy with Martingale elements (i.e. increasing lot sizes at each new grid level when the price moves against the already established positions).

The question not IF, but WHEN such strategies fail. See the above 'Caesar' examples.

Oh? I'm not always using the strat of increasing lot sizes at each new grid level when the price moves against the already established positions. Mainly base on the ranging of BB and SMA.

Here it is:
https://www.myfxbook.com/members/CrazyTrader/fx-army-soldier-2/1334894

Only drawdown calculated by myfxbook is wrong (99.99%) Simply because I withdrawed more money than my Capital while I got opened winning position... In fact I withdraw money from current position as it is allowed by my broker.
At some point my capital was below 0 while equity covered all that.
My stopLoss was set that even if it got hit... my capital then would be positive....

Summary:
600% for the last 6 months => so 100% / per month in average

Provide 10% of million... if I lose it, max drawdown is 10% right!?
Result in 6 months => $500 000

Anyway, old myfxbook members and followers know I can achive this with my awesome swing signals.

drawdown means nothing
i store money out of my active account in another account.
why?
after the SNB descision and you get a shocker move
what if the broker doesnt honor your stops or you get filled at some stupid rate
or the spreads widen and therefore again, your stops arent hit at the price you want.

Secondary backup?
have some profits in another 2nd account and you can sweep those funds in and out if you want by simply
jumpng online.

My point is .. drawdown figures with
eg.
$500 in account
$250 loss (50% DD)
Max loss is $500
but you might have $3k in the other account as surplus.

That doesn't make any sense. I understand what you're doing and why but that has NOTHING to do with draw down. Withdraws are not calculated as draw down.

You've gotta be in it to win it.

Drawdown is based on Capital...
A negative capital make no sense into their calculation... but in pratical it can bee done.

Myfxbook does not calculate draw down based on capital withdraws

Do you think withdraws affect Capital?

Obviously yes, therefore, DD is impacted by withdraws... simple as that
