Maximum drawdown I have had while giving recs is 15% and that was a bad bad stretch. Some winners thrown in there, but overall was not a good month. To be realistic I would say someone should plan for 30% max drawdown in an account, but after 15% I stop for the whole month. (only happened once) At 30% and 2 months of bad trading you are doing someting wrong. So a vacation would be needed

Of course, like I said before, if you have a large account you have the advantage of trading small 2-4 lots on a 100k account and still making 200% with very small risk.

The average return/drawdown ratio for the top CTA funds over the last twenty years is around 1.5, and this includes some of the very best managers in the business.

You've achieved a ratio of 16, well done.

I would suspect their large orders influence what they do some. I am a small trader in comparison and do not have thousands of followers, so can do some things they can't I suspect I get a hint of sarcasm, but that is ok. I update everything live so people can see for themselves. Now if a large fund wants to hire me for a few mil a year...I am willing to take them up on that offer

You risk 1.6% per trade and make 240% a year, only experiencing a 15% drawdown.

Sure ..

It's ok, I would be skeptical also considering it is trading. I didn't start out making 240% a year from the very first trade lol.

Website is www.livetradingzone.com You can do a free membership to see the trades live and then you can see if you want. If not then no harm, no offense.
