And I thought systematic trading was supposed to remove emotion!

To me, it seems this has nothing to do with emotions, or increasing size. Any system with this type of behavior is not a system I would be trading. I don't know, maybe the system only took 5 trades in the past year and in the past 4 days took 2 trades that gave back half, in which case that would be ok, but I assume that is not the case. More info would be needed to determine how robust the system is. I think one needs to find a robust system first, then start thinking about increasing size to maximize profits, etc.
