Another very typical "system" here at C2. Two or three weeks up, then down and the "developer" disappears. No responsibilty, no feeling for other people's money, no quality at all - only blablabla.
Sure, I'll leave a review! :) System owner starts system, trades system for a couple of months, loses most of previous month's profit, and permanently checks out of C2, deleting account as he goes. So long, Max and Zen FX!
Although the latest two trades have been disappointing, I think the previous review is too harsh. Before the setback Zen FX was in the top tier of more efficient system in terms of Expectancy/contract traded/hours exposed to mkt risk. Now it is an average system but this does not mean that it is fundamentally flawed as the reviewer was implying. As a subscriber, I hope that the system comes back to the excellent levels that attracted me. Otherwise we have the right to walk away.
Lost 10% of equity in two trades whereas vendor claims max. 4% risk per trade. Risk management is very poor. Leaving trades open at weekend as stoplosses are meaningless due to gap opens. A typical amateur.
I must admit that the model is broken in the last two trades due to open gap which haven't happen in the last 4+ years when the model is triggered. I'll keep that in mind and hope not to make the same mistake again in the future.
As far as "risk management" and "amateur" are concerned, I would like to clarify below facts, 1)In the q&a thread, it is said Mostly one trade risks 0%-4% equity, 2)There is a stop order which is normally 30-70 pips from the open position at the very beginning for each opening, 3)I myself trade 200% of the system.
