    Sure. This is not a grid. Stops entries and goals are on degrees that are specialized.

    Dear MZ,

    I really love it if you delete/clean-up this post, as it really doesn't match with the thread content.
    The film is porno, and I am sure that you know this isn't the ideal spot for that.

    I for myself personally, don't want my articles to look side-by-side on precisely the exact same page with such pictures.

    With all respect,
    Khalil

    Rarely. Some men, largely EA programmers, try to tweak the entries with indiors, or restrict the number of degrees, meaning that they shut the basket following a maximum level is attained, or establish a stop loss based on the fairness, or a combination of all of these.
    I've developed myself some in the past and even made some money with it before knowing I was just very lucky and there is no extra value to these sort of approaches, unless you've got infinite sum of money. For signal suppliers or the EA programmers, martingales are excellent since they can demone a nice curve and market the EA or sign to newbies. They start again when it blows up. Give any martingale EA to me you might have and I will find. . .for the last years.

    lol.

    You get me confused.
    I thought this was about Kelly criterion, modelling and backtesting quality.
    Back to the drawing board.



    EDIT: Love the naked trading parallel. Brilliant. 1

    Thanks for your answer. I notice you mentioned that the EA developers cut the EA after certain amount of x. Well what if I had a 25% win rate but one commerce fails! You'd be able to martingale to profit on the few orders which Could be winners. We call an expectancy but a few people follow strict principles for depart and enrry and martingale works flawlessly.

    You mean it didn't fail in your extensive backtesting for the previous decades? Because if this is accurate, it is possible to just exchange it lonely with the maximum leverage...
    Anyway, it is possible to assume that your martingale is a single trade with a stop loss being your entire account. In this case, you can't assume you made any profit unless your account had doubled and you'd withdrawn at least your first capital, plus some profits. The profits will start coming up because the majority of the instances, the market is inconsistent and quite often reverse to a level, allowing EA to shut the basket with a profit, giving the illusion into the trader that he made a profit. Nonetheless, it is a mathematical certainty that at some point the price won't reverse and the martingale will dismiss the account. Therefore, martingales are high risk, low reward system.

    If you've got a profitable system with a positive expectancy, I don't see how a martingale could be useful for it. You'd better use pyramiding, letting you add when you are already in profit and increasing your profits without adding any kind of risk to your account. It will not work, but when it works, it may provide you gains for no risk. Pyramiding is a very low risk, high reward system. . .but it requires a lot of luck and work of course.
