This is a short post for newbie traders and newbie C2 clients. I´m afraid that some of them are not understanding how to trade or how to follow a system.
Take care of those systems promising incredible returns. But also take care of jump out of a system in the middle of a normal DD.
This month, my system fell 11.6% (now only 6.5%) and two subscribers abandoned my system, even when in my system details you can read the expected DD is between 10% and 20%.
How to distinguish a system blowing out and a normal DD is not easy, but you can do it.
First of all, take care to not choose a system that average losses.
Second, choose a system not over leveraged.
Third, study the system and the owner of the system. You must reach to the conclusion that is a reasonable person and a reasonable system.
And finally, don´t put all your money in one system. Rent at least 3 systems. Everything in this life can blow out.
Once said all this, let me tell you that you are doing badly if you leave a system in the middle of a normal DD. Profits and losses are part of the process of trading. Hopefully, in the medium and long term, profits will be higher than losses. But if you leave in the middle of a normal DD, you only will collect the losses and never will be able to make new profits.
When you choose a system, do it conscientiously and understanding you will face Draw Downs that you will have to suffer if you want the big prize.
