Megadroid Results: Thur 25th Oct 2012 — 3 Comments

  1. Richard,

    I make a test during 2 months in October, November 2013, with a setting of 0,14 lot, but I must say that my 10.000$ became 9.000 $ and I remark the reason seems to have a too high stoploss. But, I don’t know how to change it ?
    Could you tell me by mail the settings you are using ?
    I thank you very much.

  2. Hi Keustermans,

    Yes, it does have a very high stop loss. There’s no way to change it.

    In general all scalper strategies (e.g. Megadroid), have a very high win rate (i.e 80%+), BUT, the losses are typically much greater than the win size. The rationale is that the numerous small wins will overcome the occasional huge lose trades. Whether the strategy makes money depends mostly on how frequent these large losing trades are. For example, if we get 1 large loss trade (60 to 100pips) every month, then it’s going to be pretty hard to be profitable overall. Even though 2013 was very quiet (i.e. low trade counts), the reason I was profitable was just because there were no big losing trades on my accounts in 2013. Most years I get 4-6 big loss trades at least, but also in the past I was getting more winners to offset the losses. So it’s really a balance.
