The biggest run of consecutive winners is 8 and my last losing trade was on 2016/12/07. I don't use any technical analysis and if i did i would have more losing trades due to the nature of technical setups. I have 2 accounts, the first is the intraday account using 10:1 leverage and the second is a long term account (positions 3-12 months) with 1:1 leverage.

Reasons for losing trades in the last 6 months:

5 of the trades were improperly paired trades (this is my biggest issue at the moment and its largely attributed the a divergence in the fundemantal position in the economy and market sentiment. This is my main area of focus to improve)
3 of the trades were caused by oversight of data i didn't see (doesn't happen often)
I suspect that you calculate max drawdown just on realised losses however max dd should be calculated on unrealised losses as well .
