Most advice given in books seminars and trading education by gurus is

Risk 2 % per trade , it works well in winning streaks.

If a trader gets 15 losses in a drawdown , he would lose 30 % of his account .So this advice is given by clue less gurus.

In order to get 5 % drawdown from 16 losses , a trader should risk no more than 0.33 % per trade .

Most of you are buying books written by failed traders. , money management is the area of poor advice.:LOL:

Isn't that exactly what you are, a self appointed guru?

I thought the area of poor advice was the endless torrent of threads you create.
Compounding to a billion in 5 years, that should be in the hall of fame...

And the probability of getting 16 losses on the trot is the same for everyone I suppose? If you are going to sneer at the advice from "gurus" then at least understand how it works.

The poor advice is given by traders who hang around internet , looking for clues on websites to become efficient . looking for the missing jigsaw pieces in their failing careers.Them following failed traders cum authors , and regurgitating same old crap on internet and spewing it on forums.

You are aware that a 30% drawdown is not solely connected to consecutive losses
I take it?
Its perfectly possible to have a 30% drawdown with the longest losing streak
of around 4-6.

These concepts are not independent modules.
Money management alone is quite useless without thoroughly understanding
of the edge it is applied to.
That is supposing you even have one in the first place...

It is much more probable for new learners , in fact the figure can be as bad as 30 to 40 for losers.The experienced and skilled will easily get to 10 losers as their maximum in a draw down .

:rolleyes: F**k me, win rate, consecutive wins / losses, why do people
obsess over things that aren't as important?

You think an 85% strike, max of 2 losers in a row guarantees success?
You are talking about isolated factors of an egde.
The whole blend is what matters.

For anyone that knows no better, FFS read this thread instead:

I am only risking 3 % per currency pair , per 6 methods , that is 0.5 % per method .0.5 % allows 8 losses per method * 6 losses =48 losses .

That is as sound as it gets , now I can take to the next level , with gbp 10 per pip , with proportionately higher account size.
