    even someone with 50K does not want a draw down, draw down is relative account size does not matter, money is money!

    not matter? Do a test with starting account of 500 and one on 50.000. You will see that it matters. The 500 will be whiped out due to margin, while your 50.000 will still be alive.

    if you over margin a 500 dollar account is the same as over margin of 50000 account you know that. that is why you need to do your testing and know what size of lot to trade

    Unhappy Backesting problem

    Backesting Ilan1.4 (SL) - thanks Funyoo -, if the period is long, it trades only at the start of it.
    Set to start 2008.03.01 and end 2009.01.26, it stopped trading on May 15th.
    Whatever the start date, it's similar, it trades for a month or two then stops.
    Any ideas anyone?
    It's a powerful ea, but martingale ..

    You have maybe a hole in your tick data. It happens sometimes, you have to reload the currency history.

    fcm rejecting orders is what i found out! not letting the orders go through, but that is supposed to be a requote i though, don't know, MT4 brokers are something else!
