Dislikedno need to be too defensive
the reason that i quoted ur " controlling dd is the key" is that we all understand it. but not everyone understand what is the key to "controlling dd".
check ur words below quoted, "using BUY SELL proportions to with the TREND, LPL cycle, SWAP, hedge to control DD"
they are just runaway from truth, they are merely 'burying the head in the sand', they are not the solution
the solution is cutting losers, consistently.
pipeasy just didn't emphasize it, but he did it promptly.
in other words, in basket...Ignored
A loosing trade will float and continues to float up -0-down , LOSS PROFIT LOSS..now it will take time for the cycle to complete..
But we continue to take profit in the mean time ..increasing the bal.
STOP Trading...if you are near the MAX DD limit.
YOU have no need to ACCEPT the LOSS that is floating...its your LINE OR CREDIT.
YOUR HEDGE positions in the indicator ...give you peace of mind to sleep ..and go on a trip...DO YOU GET IT..
YOU will come back and pickup where you left off..
your floating LOSS WILL continue to float...until the cycle returns..or the trend change..then rebalance ..to take advantage..
THAT's the purpose of having the indicator on the LIVE ACCOUNT.
