Trading Strategy "FUTURES CME-NYMEX"

Hi Alexey,

What observations would you make about your 5/12 - 5/14 trade? A lot of risk taken, and a large drawdown, on that one trade…

At this time, another trade was opened, which was in profit. This balanced the overall position. But when the balance was not in my favor, I decided to close the losing trade.
And after that, the second trade quickly went up.
Therefore, it is seen that equity quickly recovered.

Hi Alexey,

Thanks for your reply. Rather than comparing all active positions to assess the total drawdown - which I appreciate you pointing out - I was looking at the C2 chart of your strategy. As I scroll across the C2 chart it indicates an account equity of ~$70,704 on 4/29 and ~$53,206 on 5/14, a drawdown of ~($17,498). Yet, according to the system statistics above the chart, C2 reports a max drawdown during that same period of ($25,867), or 36.3% of account equity.

What is your understanding of the differences in these reported statistics, and what is your summary of intra-trade and closed trade drawdowns?


I used to at least understand why there is a difference in the display of data. But for me, the results are more important. For example, subscribers really do not like big drawdowns and stop-losses, even if they are made using the trading system. In this regard, I am adjusting my system for shorter drawdowns. Therefore, there may be more short stop losses. In general, my system makes money and I intend to continue my trading on c2.

After the complete failure of my strategies, I took a break.
Everything was connected with the desire to show high profitability.
The increased risk led to total losses.
Now I am back to active trading again.
My new strategy is

Not much, but a profit.
Trade - entry into the long after the reversal.
Exit - too early, but with a profit. It is better than too late and with a loss.
Attached is a picture of the trade.
