Congrats on reviewing and posting the stats, most people don't.

But looking at your risk... risked 23k to make 8k, not good (I see that came from short side). You should try to address this, it will be an account killer.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Maybe a hard disaster stop would work in that situation that a trade would go against you 23k, but it looks like you're able to find some consistency with finding winning trades and cutting most of your losing trades smaller. Your disaster stop could work with even a fraction of 23k. It's good to see a profit in the end after 23 trades so that's progress.

about 23kmaxdd

mike, thanks for your time and your effort to see, comment and help ,
regarding that figura max dd 23k , i would like to explain a detail:
as you can see between 2 to 7 there was an open trade, out of plan,exceeding the max daily loss and the max dd, that is why i write failed this combi.

to continue with the test , i close that open trade with -10k loss, to book the loss of that trade simulating a loss reaching the max daily loss,
i did it, and continue with the test,
i want to make the test with that max loss on the 3erd day and practicing to try to recover from the draw down.
all the values of performance are valid except the mae 23k becasuse is caused for that open trade, and the losing time, for the same reason.
the idea is try to finish this , and then start other.

also i realized that to get the goal is not necessary to use all the lots, and i try to limit to 5, and use 15 in case a to scratch a trade o pressing with good odds.
in this way i reduce risk, and i can get the results.

also i will try to reduce in the next test the max dd, and max dll (now maxdd 20k, max dll 10k), to fit in the real combine parameters (maxdd 13500 y dll 9000),

thanks
