Consider this two scenarios which is an EA trade for us 100%: 1/ (Setup 4 above 4): profit $37,073 with one or two time the drawdown reach near 56.7% which the traders/investor need to deposit some money to pass through the difficult time (the EA will alert us). 2/ (Setup 7 above): profit $1,831 and the trader/investor just dont have to do anything.

Exactly. You have no desire to learn to actually trade properly.

I will pick scenario 1.
You are ignoring reality. Rather than closing out your bad trades, you are just letting them run without any actual understanding of how the markets work.
You assume incorrectly that you can just keep putting money into your account until it turns profitable.
Look at what is really happening with your account ok?
Say for example you have $100,000.00 in your investment account. You open a series of trades which all go against your account. You are now at 60% DD because of your currently active bad trades, and you say 'Ok ill just put more money in to cover it.'
Meanwhile, since it is 60% of the account holding bad trades against your capital, you have already lost $60,000.00 if those trades don't turn around soon. But your idea is to just keep adding money so it can be lost as well.
Letting trades go bad and then just letting them run forever to keep getting worse is a very ignorant method of trading.
It shows you have absolutely no real understanding of the markets. You use NO money management. You have no real strategy other than 'ok Ill just keep putting money into this dumpster fire, and hopefully it will make me a profit eventually'. That is completely absurd to think that is a good idea.
Stop acting like you have any clue about properly protecting your investment capital and making a profit.
Just throwing gasoline onto a dumpster fire does not make you a firefighter, so why would throwing money away make you a good trader?
It is solid logic to use proper money management and to focus on asset protections.
CuongVC posted: I don't really want to persuade you. I just want to see how people pick their option. I pick option 1 because I am fine tuning my EA and see that with a small increase in DD max allowable, there come a big increase in profit.
Small increase in DD? You have an 80% DD for your Example of trading. Depending on your brokerage rules for live trading, you've just effectively blown your account trading at those levels.
And you consider those levels to be acceptable? Over 80% DD? That is beyond absurd. On a $100,000.00 USD Live account, 80.5% would be over -$80,000.00 in loss on those bad trades that you allowed to run.
The way you are trading, you will blow your account if you continue this way.
This is the original info. in a easier to read layout: Setup... Profit.............No. Trades .....DD max.......Min size 1.........321701...........101.................77.8%.............3 2.........315950...........101.................80.5%.............3.5 3.........122704............90..................67.2%.............2.5 4...........37073............81..................56.7%.............2 5...........15699............77..................44.1%.............1.5 6.............6192............76..................30.7%.............1 7.............1831............76..................15.8%.............0.5
Yes setup 1, 2, 3 have too high DD to me too. But let point out these:
- From setup 7 to setup 6: an increase of DD max from ~16% to ~30% bring more than three times of profit. - From setup 6 to setup 5: an increase of DD max from ~30% to ~44% bring more than two times of profit. - From setup 5 to setup 4: an increase of DD max from ~44% to ~57% bring more than two times of profit.
So I would pick setup 5 or even 4. I won't pick setup 1,2 or 3 (don't assume that I do).
I have plenty of time to do some deposit when the DD approaching 40%. And my test showed this happen only one or two times in it's test period.
The information above is from a test, not how I trade. I don't think you know how I trade yet. I have traded from 2006 so please don't consider I am new to this Forex world and save your 'teaching' and fast conclusion. I don't know if you are a successful trader or not because I couldn't see any system on your profile. Only see the 'professional' in the name. It is better you show some real account performance before teaching.
Who said that 80% DD is ok, sir? Read carefully before making conclusion because many of your conclusion are too fast and wrong.
You have nothing to prove to me. Same here, so stop your 'teaching' because all the teaching you did in this are not new or some even wrong to me. But there is no time for discussion on that. That is not the purpose of this thread.
It doesn't have to go this way if you were more careful with your words.
I hope this is enough, we need to focus the effort in something else that is more beneficial.
I just ask all traders here 'what setup do you prefer?' in the original post. That is the purpose of the post, not asking how to trade.
I need to correct what you said that is not right about me:
The setups (in the original post) are not my options. That are the test optimization's results, sir. And of course I won't pick the one having 80% DD (as stated earlier). That was another fast conclusion of yours.
Chill out guys. It's getting a bit heated here. No one is saying that 80%% DD is ok. This is meant to be a discussion about how increasing potential DD (risk) can lead to increased profits (reward). This is a fair enough discussion
