Thread: Minimizing Drawdown Exposure for FXTreadPros Semi Martingale

  1. #11
    Why are you trying to oversmart the market? Beleive me sooner or later you are likely to blow up your account I attempted a similar stategy onto a demo account in my earlier days and it made great profits until it eventually blew up I even thought of and attempted a lot more advanced gies compared to the one you propose-that I invested innumerable hours to develop-but they ended up the exact same
    plz dnt misunderstand me I'm not here to critisize, I actually congratulate you to your out of the box thinking but beleive me trading the old manner cutting your losses and keeping your profits run is the only way to go
    just my 2 cents

    Please be kind enough to let me tomorrow to eliminate my posts, as I have a friend who's a professional with enormous insight on several different egies. Please let me to confer with him, he's currently on vaion; however, when he returns I think he might be in a position to better describe this notion, which I think integrates nicely with your egy.

    Thanks,

    OK Walt....As I said my only concern is that I do not want anybody who's trying to understand my method to become confounded with something new, before knowing the original notions.

    Thanks Mina....All opinions are appreciated. Many seem to say they have attempted similar thoughts and I am simply presenting that which has worked consistently for me. I agree that sooner or later I MAY blow up an Account, however, if that happened tomorrow, I'd still be far ahead of the match profit-wise.

    Hi Walt,

    I agree with Dan. This is his post and he has been working with his egy with success. If it ain't broke why seeking to integrate something that is untested. I have read your proposal few times and I'm confused about what you are trying to advoe.

    Thanks.

    Hi Jones,

    I believe I knew your idea....
    So what's happening today....stopped trading or stopped believing?????

    Hi jones,

    you are able to elaborate alittle bit in your idea for improved comprehension

    It's really the concept of employ patience and appropriate MM. Wait for the market to reverse, as opposed to closing out the transaction. Many traders are bound to shed with tight SL and gearing too high...

    Hello JAVAJAMES Jones,

    Could you please elaborate Jones' idea by using an example, ie start with a position at a rate like: long 1 lot Eur/Usd in 1.5600, then...?

    Hope you don't mind as I'm interested to examine a variety of ideas/ways of handling trade. Thank You.

    Hi Dan,
    I do not see you for a little while already, and hope everything is okay with you. I would be interested in getting your own EA to do a little bit of demo testing. Please advise the best way to get it.
    I am still not able to send you private message since I am just a junior member.

    thanks

    That I may be off base in my thinking, but stay tuned...
    That seems potentially interesting....BUT maybe you must Post that at a separate Thread in order that other Traders don't get confused.
