First I would like to say we had a Recovery Factor over 100, and when we closed a GBPUSD trade tonight for £35 loss (1% of account) that number slashed to 50. That's from only one trade loss! We have a 7% loss rate to 93% win rate! So we added £105 to the account today but the figures hardly rise and take one £35 loss and the figures drop!?
It just goes to show the stats page in MQL5 is on the whole a bunch of rubbish. The only thing to concern yourself with is average Drawdown, and Monthly gain consistancy. These figures are not manipulated!
Tough, tough week. Pound and Euro found strength and we had to watch them like a hawk. The moves were over done and retraced much of the bullish move by Fri close. We hedged and managed the positions throughout, back to safety while
adding another 7% this week. I really tried to get the percentage up this week but it also increased the risk of drawdown. This is not usually a sensible thing to do. Unfortunately, the last day of February didn't give me quite what I wanted and we end Feb with 26.8% increase. And then we go and add 2% on the 1st of March! Not enough days in February. That's how it goes... :)
