As per the method I use here is my first trade today on JPY225 currently I have TP at 100% and stop at 61.8%.

I always learn something new from you. Outstanding.

Thanks for posting.

I am risking no more than 0.5% on each trade, I will increase that as I get better with this system. So I would have to be wrong more than 28 times to lose 14%.
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).

Banzai has released Pivot Points Lines v 1.3 in button format:

Maybe you could work on this indicator to add the additional required levels.

Have a look at the attached indicator, does it do what you want, I can easily modify it. As it is you will need to load it again for weeks HL.

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!

Hi Josi,
I think you have the wrong end of the stick. FourXXXX is just showing the courtesy of replying and informing another user that he uses half a percent as his risk per trade. So a rough 14% x 1/2 = 28. Simple math I think.

I see you are a senior member and I am fairly new in posting to this forum (even though I have been following for a while now). The question I have for you is whether you realise you are being very negative - I think this is called "Trolling".

Can I ask, what is it exactly that you are contributing to the conversation? Or was this just a brain-fart?
Troll: a person who intentionally antagonizes others online by posting inflammatory, irrelevant, or offensive comments or other disruptive. Internet users adopted the word "troll" to denote someone who intentionally disrupts online communities.

Here we go again - "trolling"
What else is new?
You do what you have to do, pal!

Maybe too simple maths, really.
Do you think "brainfart" is an insult? Or is it "trolling"?
Isn't it at all interesting how FourXXXX (or is it XXXX) arrived at 28 (not 21, 13 or 86)?

Hello, what is the name of this indicator (1Pepita Oro)
Could you share it.

Thanks
This is the Golden Nugget Dashboard (Experiment) indicator. A very good idea, though I can't get it to work on my platforms.

Josi Mate,

If you are interested in this system please post charts and your learning.

We can learn from each other. That is what Fourxxx and some of us are doing here.

We could be right or wrong but we are learning.

Ask yourself : What am I doing?
