    Thanks for the reply. As mentioned in my previous post, martingale will make it possible for you to scale your level to the market. Say the max loss I am willing to take is 35%. I'd Spread that risk over 3 trades where the order takes the bulk of the risk. Why? Being as that are the winner that is huge that is supposed. So Order 1 1 percent. Order 2 = 5 percent order 3 = what ever is left.

    Clearly each triumph could lead to covering the last lost with overall advantage.

    Me hitting the tp and scaling all over with the profit lets me compound my profit. Which can be involves risk so long as you follow same cash managememt.


    I also have withdrawn my deposit twice over back to back weeks. My objective will be draw 1500 every week and 50 usd per day. So far it has worked.

    You increase the position when the market goes against you personally increasing the odds that you're whrong from your entry point ? And if you're right in your entry you get 1 percetn of your risk to function for you, if you are whrong then 5% ?

    Thank You.

    Best regards

    Exactly. Therefore, if the sequence doesnt allow for more than 3 losses you await ththre or can bet on every trade the third order but you also need to take into account that the large probability trades seem frequently. So instead of waiting for this one commerce why not scale up your way and take all of them.

    Can you only scale in once the position moves against you or do you add on pyramiding whern it moves in your path ?

    Thank You.

    The form of Pyramiding that is referred to in this thread isnt something I have done. Why I've done is in the past is close a position several pips from the tp and a
    Nd hope to get a retrace. Once that occurs, I then reenter together with the profit I got. That of course is a massive wawauy to compound but it would mean I will be gping ahainst my m to optimize profits. That to me isn't worth doing.
