Its not that I want to trade the 0.01 lots at all. It would be better if it didn’t trade these. It just for some reason works better only trading the recovery trades??
Your comments dont make sense as I am still using the same SL, Break Even parameters & closing strategy.
The risk is pretty much the same. Except I am avoiding a larger percentage of losing trades ( well not avoiding, just trading them at 0.01 lots)
So they are not “Erratic Spurts”. They are the only trades I am wanting to trade.
Also you can work out your risk based on your largest losing trades and your acceptable risk, so saying you are not going to risk more then 2% of your account is a bit silly. Alot of people will accept a max drawdown of 30%. If you are looking to only make 10% per year, you should look at other investments. I want a return over 20% per month.
I only forward tested this because it backtested so much better. Thought I would let you ppls know. Of course it could bomb out next month.
