OK, I already know what 80% of the comments are going to be so let me state this right off the bat, I'm not trying to find someone to manage millions of dollars. I'm not looking for a safe and secure investment. I'm looking for those risk takers with some skill. I'm just curious, that's all. Hoping a few people would like to share their progress.

So for the sake of this thread, the only requirements are:

1. 100% monthly return or greater

2. Max draw down of 50%

If you have an account making 95% return with 10% DD, please don't post it here (send me a PM though 'cause I'll totally follow you with real money...lol)

I'm actually interested if drawdown is being affected based on equity withdrawals;
 
I suggest contacting a member of myfxbook staff.

Ethan is very friendly and helpful on these questions.

(It might that he withdraw equity during a trade and the remaining equity the drawdown is being calculated on. I don't know. So I suggest asking support over here)

Ok, so you can't do it but I'm sure many can. I doubled one of my accounts just last night. Depends on the risk you're willing to take.

You've gotta be in it to win it.

It is not. Anybody that thinks it is simply doesn't know what they're talking about. The draw down calculated at Myfxbook is only from trading equity. It's the % your account looses on open trades. Anybody that thinks otherwise just doesn't know what's going on.

I have made about 800% in less than one day with less than 10% DD twice. Second time was all luck. I highly suggest you stay away from this if you think FX is something you want to do for a long time you will just die out eventually. The odds are stacked against you before you even do anything so to think you can shift the odds somehow and beat every professional, bank big player etc you need to keep dreaming. Just Aim for 5% a month and you will be better off. Forex should be treated like growing a garden. Takes patience, work, and care.

Anyway DD has never been important to me.... that's why FF isn't even calculated it.
Only Risk taken by trades matter.

Who cares how many liters is eaten by a car to reach 0 to 100? Only time matters!

FXtrader2010,
you are so right about the 5% target profit per month. To set up an account protection around that figure is very wise. Doing it will bring down the total risk per trading day. It also will bring down the risk percentage taking on individual trades. Patient is required as you say but it can pay out handsomely at the end of the year.

Ok, kind of surprised at some of these responses. I understand money management. I trade an account where the risk per trade is set at 1.5% of the balance. That has NOTHING to do with this thread. The rules of this thread are posted. This is not a HOPE to get rich quick thread. Every experienced trader knows you blow your accounts unless you practice solid money management. So lets move that discussion over to a different thread and get back to the point of this one.

1. Over 100% return/month
2. DD under 50%
3. Or a DD : Return of 1 : 2
4. No grid or martingale

your search for holy grail mindset makes me laugh. I could give you a shtty system that fits in this description but next month it could return 0%. It would all be dependant on the market conditions! In saying that, there is no one size fits all for criteria as sometimes the market is ranging, sometimes it is trending. No one can predict prices. Like I said, you are better off just sticking to what works most of the time and forget that silly 1% per trade rule.

This has nothing to do with holy grails. I seriously believe this forum is being trolled by a bunch a 5 y/o. Please read the OP before you guys add stupid comments.
