So you figure 14% is the max. dropdown you could live with (for the time being).

How did you reach the number 28? Did you back- and forward-test your win rate and know that this is your probable worst case scenario (very professional) or is it just a random number you came up with (very gambling-style)?

Not being mathematically-minded I may be wrong but I think it would be less than 14% dropdown (taking the original sum as the basis of calculation) because as you continue to lose the total sum of your capital decreases: therefore 0.5% would be less and less each time.

And then again, of course, there'd be the cost of trading (broker, market order vs limit order etc).

I never said 14% is the maximum I could live with that is @Kenrobert1's number.

Yes, I agree with this,

"Not being mathematically-minded I may be wrong but I think it would be less than 14% dropdown (taking the original sum as the basis of calculation) because as you continue to lose the total sum of your capital decreases: therefore 0.5% would be less and less each time."

Go back and read the post again a little more carefully before you try to criticize me, this is what I said: "So I would have to be

wrong more than 28 times to lose 14%." CAPISCE!

As for brokerage costs that is already factored into the 0.5% risk by my EA that I use for placing trades.

What do you hope to gain with your criticism of me and others on here? In future, I will not be responding to your trolling!
