I don't understand why you are switching your approach. Even with Righline method you tried to venture away from the suggested R/R and were not profitable. now your into a completely new method. Perhaps if you had taken the time to use proper trade management to start you would have been profitable. Your trade selection was good however your R/R and trade management was bad/ to jump in and out of methods will only keep you under the boat.

Hi Mike. I just found your journal myself. When you say drawdown, are you talking actual loosing weeks or just days? Was the week posative every week? What were your experiences overall with RLT? Im considering them as well. Much appreciate your honesty. Thanks in advance
Jon
