Here is my $50,000 demo account. Mostly quick scalping(few mins - a few hours for 0.2 to 10 pips profit) with a few longer term trend (a few days for 20+ pips) trades. I have an EA in the mix too (An older EA also traded on this account, however it was EXTREMELY unprofitable). It has only made about $3000 profit.
I really need to work on my drawdown, although I have a 81% win rate, I have had some losses that have destroyed a weeks worth of profit. Mind you, this is because I don’t use TP or SL. I really need to work on this and spend longer times planning out a trade to determine appropriate MM.
I only make 0.14% on average each trade but I also trade very frequently. And will trade groups of anywhere from 3-10 lots per currency pair. I normally attempt to close them at 40-50 pip loss. However, depending on the feeling from a) my analysis, b) this forum, c) a few service providers I use on one of my live accounts with Zulutrade, I will keep trade open past this.
I do trade gold and silver. In the past I tried to do this ‘quickly’(a few hours - 2 days) but recently took 1 trade with gold and silver and am regretting both. Thankfully I was able to close my gold trade in profit. I would have been able to keep my recent drawdown levels relatively low (2-4%) if it was not for these two trades in which on a few days made my drawdown peak 10%.
Anyways, if you have any questions please let me know.
