I am having the same problems as you bro. The rithmic d/c caused me some losses think about it you lost 250$ that is 10% already of max total dd. I do not so good in these current markets (as you described) wish I knew what kind of day it was in advance so I can avoid trading on those smaller range/slower 'trend' days.

Thing is, the max dd 2500$ is so little that you have to use really small stops which means you can't do swings (more profitable) and are stuck scalping on micro time frames where signal strength is not as strong as those fr say the hourly or daily chart.

I did everything exactly the same, if i had a signal i took it and calculated the stop and target the same way i did in the Gauntlet.

At some point i made a small adjustment to the strategy however this resulted in less losing trades, i ranked my trades from 1, 2 and 3 from being a strong signal to a mediocre signal and in the latest part of the live sim i only took the signals that where the best, however it didn't work out. If i hadn't done that the 10% would have be gone even earlier.

Numbers work... Magic lies in the numbers
