[...] The threshold is a percentage of the amount my of account that I spent many, many months experimenting to establish what they are.

Just wondering, is this all theoretical, or have you put live trades on with these systems?

Grausch, I know about the law in regards to OPM. It's common knowledge. Thanks and thanks for the link. The words under my name over there say I'm a new prevert or whatever, but I've been working hard on making a business in the trading for quite a while now.


Bob, Don't talk to me about how MY POST IS EMPTY, OFFICE TURD. You may refer to me as Mr. Trader, punk. Grow up, picky little desk stool witch.


Kevin, I apologize about that. "Office zombie" broke out again. As far as what was my max draw down last year goes, that's not an applicable question. You have to ask about percentages to traverse understanding from trader to trader because we all carry different sized accounts. What might be pennies to someone could be enormous to someone else. I'll just say that I have strict thresholds for risk and draw down maximums built into my strategies. The threshold is a percentage of the amount my of account that I spent many, many months experimenting to establish what they are. In my fundamentals trading system and my options system the draw down is a big percentage of the accounts. In my scalping system the draw down is a very small percentage of the account. I rarely ever lose money which is ideal because the most important rule to this is never lose money. The return on your time and investment rises and compounds a lot faster that way. Everyone should strive to find strategies that will rarely lose you money and/or technically never lose you money.

Interesting response to my simple question about percentages. I'm out for good.

If you have any questions please send me a Private Message or use the futures.io "Ask Me Anything" thread

It's easy to be out. It's hard to stay in.

The way you are writing, it'll indeed be "hard to stay in" (this forum).
Hopefully you are a less ... Irritating... persona when your not hidden behind a screen.
(No need to reply - or your broker might get a hunch about how you're trading... )

Needed a good laugh this weekend, this thread delivered.

If you're worried about your broker reverse engineering your system, I guarantee the system is worthless.

Yes, and that was not a mistake, so everybody will see if I over-reacted or not .

And you didn't.

I've never been called "OFFICE TURD" before.

He really doesn't have that much imagination, but never mind....
