Using full account size on each trade

Hi - this should be quite simple but does anyone know how you would use all of your current capital on each trade with MC.

Example:
$100 initial capital (and first trade size)
$10 profit on first trade
Reinvest $110 (second trade size)

Thanks!

solved:

it was simple as expected:

var = initialcapital + netprofit;
sharecount = var/close;

I would suggest to have a set average for a number of trades over a period of time before increasing the size of the next trade. The reason for doing this is to ensure gradual growth instead of sporadic growth and decline. If you always bet the amount you gain on the next trade then you're guaranteed to eventually occur a loss that'll wipe out all of your gains, or a large amount, and then you'll have to start back from the beginning.

what is the strategy to knock this question from top of list 2 days?
I try answer.

the question is defined incompletely. It needs probability of profit and defined stop.
My rule of thumb, all people who can't define a problem, will blow up in < 20 cycles.
