There are some Investors ask me about my trading strategy, so I post it here in case anyone want to know as well:

Q: Hi …can you tell me a little more about your strategy? Like have you traded it live before and how long have you been trading with it?
A: This strategy has been testing, live trading for years in various market environments. It’s a swing trading and following the trend and this is the latest and the best version. I do trade live but in and out time to time because the old version is not very good one.

Q: What is the maximum number of lots total you would ever have at one time?
A: The maximum number of lots total is not fixed. It depends on the size of pips stop loss. If risk 1% ($100/10k):
SL 10 pips = 10 lots.
SL 100 pips = 1 lot.

  • Please note that: I manage risk based on the recent of account balance (my starting capital was 10k and now it’s 15k “+50% Cumul. Return”). So you may choose to “rescale” your trading account. This means you will adjust the hypothetical amount of capital in your trading account.

Q: The maximum combined total risk of all open positions in % of account capital that you would choose to risk.
A: The Max risk of all open positions is 5% at any given time. Max risk now is 8.7% (This number assumes typical broker commissions and fees are included in strategy performance).

I’ll do my best to reduce the risk. My plan is control the Max risk <10% (NO broker commissions and fees are included).

Q: Max leverage allowed for US trader is 50:1 and don’t want to get anywhere close to that.
A: For forex, C2 allows only 33:1 leverage.

Q: Is it possible to trade it manually? that is can I just take the signals and trade it without having it automated?
A: Sure, you can manually trade. It’s a swing trading, NOT a scalp trading. You may look at the “Frequency”:

  • Avg Position Time (mins): 1257.70
  • Avg Position Time (hrs): 20.96
  • Avg Trade Length: 0.9 days

Happy trading.

Q: Today’s closed trades are 1 lot each which hasn’t happened except 2 times at the start in January. Have you chosen to trade fewer lots or did you choose to assign larger stop for these trades resulting in fewer lots?

A: This strategy has been testing, live trading for years in various market environments. It’s a swing trading and following the trend and this is the latest and the best version. It depends on the market moving, I will decide when to choose to trade a large lot or choose to place a larger stop loss for small lot size.

Dear Investor,

Because of the unexpected DD in March and April (*) -12.6% - NO broker commissions and fees are included.

Free

From now on. I will reduce the trading risk by maximum 1% of one trade and the maximum risk of all open positions is 3% of the account balance at any given time.

Happy and safe trading.
Swing Trader

(*) The main reason of unexpected DD in March and April caused by a bad broker FXCM: BIG problem on C2 AutoTrade Platform. So, please don’t subscribe my strategy if you are trading at FXCM.
