DislikedIn the journal you posted, in the black box, one entry 613 pips loss, 2nd entry 408 pips loss. Imagine if the lot size was 1 or higher. Two questions. 1 What is the biggest lot size you recommend 2. Is there any particular currency pair, or in terms of more or less volatile. Thanks and RegardsIgnored
DislikedLet me ask you this. What is the max draw down % a good trader should have on a 100000 account given a 5% risk / trd with a win rate 90%. Thanks and Regards.Ignored
DislikedPer trade 5% the gone week. I increase risk % by 1% every week, on a 100000 account this increases my lot size by 0.15 on every trd of the week, 4 to 5 trds per week. On a weekly basis I have a win ratio 90% conservatively. This gone week again in a small profit. I will increase risk/trade to 6% and trade size to 0.65. You are good at calculating DD numbers and percent%. I don't know how to get/calculate these numbers. I once saw an excell s.s where you enter account size, win rate, pips won or lost, risk per trade and it will calculate DD and profit...Ignored
DislikedHi BtB, I've been reading your new way to look at trading. I have a question/suggestion. How would you see this working using Stack MM rules? Essentially, two account hedging. Open two accounts  one BUY ONLY and one SELL ONLY. Using daily as the example, but could use any timeframe. 1. At the start of each day, in BUY ONLY account, BUY 0.01 lot of all 28 pairs; in SELL ONLY account SELL 0.01 lot of all 28 pairs. 2. Set TP at some percent of ADR (could be 100%, 75%, 50%, ...your R:R comfort level). 3. No SL. 4. Trades will only close when reach...Ignored
Disliked{quote} Strategies always have a base. Your base is do things in random way. Main requirement is have a strategy can give you a stable win ratio with less possible out of timing trades. Then if we apply your rules we have: 1) Your trades are opened following an arbitrary rule. This rule don't guarantee your trades will be placed in right place 2) You dont try maximize profit. You close by TP. But TP will cut some trades early and it will not close some are in profit but not reach it. I know ADR is common in TPs. I use it too but I need price arrive...Ignored
Disliked{quote} Thanks for your reply. The objective is to have a clearcut, yes/no, "mechanical" system. So, if method of opening trades is the problem, we change the way trades are opened: Open BUY ONLY, 0.01 lot BUY trades if pair in the direction of some indicator (i.e. MTF RSI). Open SELL ONLY, 0.01 lot SELL trades if in the direction of some indicator (i.e. MTF RSI). TP at what point??? Still use percentage of ADR??? You will have DD. Then, not sure if two accounts are needed any more. And we're back where we started.Ignored
DislikedFirst, I have to mention I'm in USA so broker doesn't allow hedging. The reason for two separate accounts is to take some significant number of pips in both directions. Visually back testing dual account strategy (i.e. open 28 BUYS and 28 SELLS at some arbitrary price) is during one trading day the price of most pairs move both directions from an arbitrary price point  X number of pips up AND Y number of pips down. At some point during the trading day, why not TP at X pips up in the BUY ONLY acct and TP at Y pips down in the SELL ONLY account?...Ignored
