    Hi johncr22,

    I admit that I don't understand well the interest of the lotexponent in the MM. I will try later to replace the current MM by a conventionnal risk management to see what happens.

    I'm testing it on EU H1 with the optimized settings (first post). For the moment, after 18 days, the results are : 10.83% of total net profit with 0% of drawdown and no open trades. What do you get on M5 and what are your settings ?

    what I do not understand and what I do want to know is why starting with a 50 K accountsize? In real live who will start with such an account? So why not testing with some realistic size like 1000 or 3000?

    exactly roodstaart! If you have 50K you can afford a greater draw down. If you have only 1k all this information is useless!

    Hey Funyoo-

    Thanks again for all you do. It is a lot of work keeping up with the posts.

    I will try the MM on zero as you suggest. Not sure if the results I found are just from it opening 2 orders (therefore twice the win/loss rate) or a function of the parameters. One thing I have noticed during live demo is that it can get faked out on a trend change but does well otherwise.
