I started trading On 3rd of March 2017. I went straight with live account because impatience/greed/etc... So... I wiped out. But in August I broke even, September and October I made profit. I actually made back all the cash I lost in the previous 5months. But when I check my gain is -64% and absolute gain is 5.99%.
I'm confused by this. Shouldn't they both be positive? When I check the profit I made, it was $363.68 but the pips made is -2335.9. So is myfxbook using pips to calculate my gain and cash to calculate my absolute gain?
The reason I'm asking is because I see a lot of automated signals with massive gains but they hide their absolute gains. Also, I don't understand how Drawdowns works. I did have massive drawdowns in the first few months, but the past 3 months I had zero drawdowns because I was in profit. Yet my drawdown shows over 60%. And how can my growth still be negative but my profit be positive? Is growth calculated using pips and profit calculated using money?
P.S. I would have shared myfxbook profile, but I'm new and don't know how and not sure if I can be hacked or something. So I posted pics instead.
