This account was opened in February and I set out to stress test the possibility of trading without stops. The first test was based on a shorting strategy and this brought the drawdown to almost 40%, but did not bust the account. The second test was based on a long strategy and this also brought the drawdown to almost 40%, but did not bust the account. The stress testing has now finished and I am aiming to generate between 0% and 2% per day profit (using stops) and limiting the drawdown to less than 10% initially (it has been less than 10% since Sept 10th). My next target is to bring the drawdown to less than 3% for a 3 moth period while still maintaining 90% of trades going to profit.
