Dear experienced traders, 


I often hear martingale is dangerous and I used to really think so. 

But these days, I'm analyzing some strategies, martingale looks very good. 


How do you think about martingale?

Do you have a experience that any ac blow up even we have disciplined plan, huge deposit and small lot in low leverage?


Thank you in advance and best wishes,

Sky

The "guaranteed to blow your account eventually" concept is only valid when you allocate you whole account to the strategy

From there success really depends on how frequent it'll blow "your account"

There's no reason why you couldn't allocate 10% of you account to the strategy and lock it in whenever it doubles, that way if it doubles more often that it blows you'll have a successful strategy

Hi, Kubilay. 

Almost all of them works very well in back test, I have to test them in real ac and I'm still working on it.

Good luck, but be careful when putting a real bet with them.

Martingale is not such a thing that can be used depending only on the back test experiences.

They may work well so impressively over years, but the point here is that it blows the accounts eventually.
