However, what about some good old fashioned manual trading and identifying profitable trades yourself. Has this experienced type of trading been lost in a world of automation?

Most experienced traders will agree that there needs to be some level of manual trading to be successful in a forex trading business. To rely on totally automated systems should only be considered a stepping stone into forex trading.

Remember that a positive value means that the pairs move in the same direction, while a negative value means they have an inverse relationship. As traders, we know that we will have losing trades and that they are a natural part of trading. Essentially, maximum drawdown is the maximum loss in equity that our portfolio incurs over a period of time.

It is the largest drop from a previous equity peak to the lowest point after the peak. We can calculate the maximum drawdown after a new peak has been put in place on the equity curve. Here is the math formula for calculating Maximum Drawdown:.

What is your Maximum Drawdown in this scenario? So, the Max Drawdown in this case is Drawdowns can be very dangerous to the financial health of a trader because, as your drawdown increases the return needed to recover becomes larger and larger.

Risk of Ruin is the likelihood or probability that a trader will lose a predetermined amount of trading capital wherein they will not be able to continue trading. It could be any percentage that the trader determines will be the point at which they will stop trading a system. The Risk of Ruin is calculated as follows:. There are several simulators available for free that you can use to calculate the risk of ruin.

The one we will use in our example can be found here. We will use the following assumptions and plug that into the Risk of Ruin simulator:. If you hit calculate on the simulator, it will run the simulations again so the ROR number may vary a bit. Well the factor that we would have the most control over is the Risk amount, and so we should look to adjust that input. Ok so we will keep all the variables the same, except we will adjust the Risk amount to 2.

What does that do? Well that looks like a winner. Profit Factor measures the profitability of your trading system or strategy. It is one of the most simple but useful metrics related to system performance.

Profit Factor can be calculated in one of two ways:. A profit factor of less than 1 means that the trading strategy is a losing strategy. A profit factor of 1 to 1. A profit factor of 1. A profit factor above 2 means that the trading strategy is extremely profitable.

Can you figure out the Profit Factor of this system? This system has a Profit Factor of 1. This system has a Profit Factor of 0,97, meaning that this is a losing strategy. The concept of R Multiples was first introduced by renown psychologist Dr. Van Tharp.

R Multiple sounds like an esoteric term but it is fairly straightforward and easy to understand.

My excitement at that point was beyond the roof. I felt that I am all ready to make money in forex market, this is all I need.

But little did I know that this particular forex system would blow up my trading account balance in less than 2 months. It was disappointing. I won't deny that.

So, I bought another strategy. However, still same result. Then I bought another strategy and then another. So you see friends, I am a lot like you. I too have faced the excitement of starting forex trading, the joy of making 1 pip, the frustrations of losing account balances, the irritations of finding that none of the systems and software actually work. I have been through a whole lot of emotions.

But then, I decided something. I decided that I had enough of these systems. It's time for me to clear my forex fundamentals once again. It is time for me to go back to the drawing board and start looking at forex trading from scratch.

I also started making friends who were traders. I started talking to them. I started getting inputs from them. And I started chatting with them. Then one fine day I came across a forex trading strategy. A strategy that one of my trader friend shared with me during dinner. He just mentioned it to me casually. Not only did he share it, he also explained it in nice length. The strategy was based on some solid principles.

It used the necessary number of technical indicators; it had well defined entry and exit criteria. But more importantly - I felt that it was based on Strong Forex trading Fundamentals!! So, it has to work. But not fully. However, to say the least, I was not satisfied though.

But I was still thinking, can I still make it better? Now guys, let to tell you, I am not greedy. Since I have been in market for quite a while, one concept that I have learned and accepted is that no forex system can give winning trades all the time. All the strategies in the market have hits and misses.

However if a forex system is based on strong foundations, the number of wins are much higher and much bigger than the misses. So, I continued working on making this system even better. I thought, if I can further polish this system, the success ratio should definitely go further up.
