Actually, for serious traders that trading contest is really about goals and objectives - designing a strategy that could potentially win the contest, given the rules. At least that is how I looked at it, and I know others who have won it looked at it the same way.
If the contest criteria was return/drawdown, or any other metric, the objective would still be to design a strategy that would win. Certainly I would have traded differently if the criteria were different.
To me, goals and objectives are the most critical part of trading - and the part most people neglect.

So you've been searching for "several years" already and you still want to ask others for a robust/profitable trading strategy ? It may suggest something when you've looked for years and havn't found anything. A different approach might be more helpful perhaps ?
