Vendor says: "I attempt to limit risk to a maximum 5% per trade. My goal is low risk, high profit potential". System is down more than 20% because of a single short position which is still held open. Consistency is simply not here.
Euro 30 had a short but good run, now the character of the market has changes and the system developer does not know what to do in order to bring the system back to profitability.
A trader needs to know the direction of the market. Sometimes the market has no direction. Sometimes the trader is dead wrong. Our stops have saved us time and time again. The guarantee is that a system without stops will sooner or later be wiped out.
The first 4 mos of this discretionary system were great, but June is a wreck: 36 trades, 26 losers. Avg win $71, avg loser $97. June weeks were: -$671, -$406, -$172, -$576 and counting. Drawdown is a normal process, but consistent bad performance almost every day this mo, 3 days out of 4, is worrysome. $185 subscription fee feels inadequate at this point. 3 stars, but only because of overall 5 mos performance, otherwise June is 0 stars.
This is a discretionary trading system so the consistency is not there. There were a lot of emotion involved. It is in the down trend right now. Results speak louder than words and past results are what we base on to chose the system
Warning signs: Rapid consecutive trades in different directions as developer tries to find trend, developer changing his approach on a near weekly basis, referring to trades happening while he "had to step away," and openly referring to "young system" and "bad luck." If recent subscribers had followed his advice that it would be "okay" to trade 10K account at double the leverage, they would now be down 20% in a span of 2 weeks. How many consecutive "low risk" losses are subscribers willing to tolerate before it starts to occur to them that the "low risk" system is maybe not "low risk" at all?
This is the best system on C2 in my opinion and I think the previous reviewer had to reach pretty far to give it a 3 out of 5. It definitely deserves much higher. This system has low risk and high rewards. The stop losses are very rigid which keeps the risk per trade minimal. He only trades one pair, which allows him to follow much more than just technicals. His trade logic and intuition is great and he knows when to get in and out of a position. Through the system forum he tells you why he made the trades he did. 6 out of 10 trades are good, but 1 out of 10 is REALLY good and you'll often make 3-5% in a few hours time. I've made a lot of money on this system and hope it continues to perform as well as it has so far.
A disciplined trader managing downside risk very well. Is aggressive enough to increase risk on a trending market and to let profits run. He has overtraded a choppy market resulting in profit reduction. His base account funding magnifies results, but actually could mean total loss of funds if he had a losing trade at max risk. Record is short, but very promising.
I use technical indicators, support/resistance levels, trends, momentum, common points, correlation and volatility trading.
I recommend a minimum starting capital of $3,000. The max position size for that account should be 3 mini lots. For larger accounts, such as $10,000, the max position size should be 10 mini lots.
Auto trading is highly recommended because some of these trades are market orders and timing is very important. However, I do enter limit trades which can be used by manual traders. It should also be noted that I alter many trades depending on short term changes in market conditions.
