It is not martingale, martingale requires a doubling of size, immediately after a loss .This method places bigger bets  after 4 losses.This is different.


If you apply The losses of £15,000 approximately  on a £100,000 account, this is no different  from ordinary traders who lose  15% within 7 trades .


This money management allows you to go through 20 losses, before you lose 15 %.Most new traders  will make mistakes and experienced traders also make mistakes, so losses are inevitable.Those who practice this type of money management are likely to last longer, and in the long run be profitable every years.


BTW  this money management is applied selectively on high probability systems, with a 75 % success rate.

I use it , after about 4  losses , I  can get get most of my losses back.In worst case scenario, 12 losses will still only lose <10% , £7800 loss  out of £100k , is comfortable risk taking., considering it generates about £50k a year.

It is a martingale system. The definition of a martingale system is one where bet size is increased exponentially in the event of losses, which is what you show above. That you have tweaked how frequently you double bet size is irrelevant to the definition. I would strongly recommend anyone considering this strategy to first understand the underlying math. Wikipedia has decent background.

I do not reccomend it to anyone.as any new trader will get the false confidence .that it can make money by avoiding lossess.Secondly after a string of losses, most traders start trading their emotions with revenge trading , to get instant loss recover gratifications.They may messup anway, without this mm , that I am experienced and have the mental skills .which other traders may not have to run this

The traditional 2% money management is actually a farce, taught mainly by charlatan educators who don't trade and don't know enough about trading..This includes all  the gurus who write books for a living, these charlatans don't know about the reality of the markets and trading.They have never done it successfully. I will explain to you why.


Most beginners will make mistakes and mistakes make losing traders. New and experienced traders will make mistakes, they will reduce a 50 % hit rate system to around 25%, if there are 10 wins and 10 losses in a system, some traders will increase their losing trades to 15 out of 20. At 2% risk per trade, the traditional 2 % risk will reduce a £100,000 balance to approximately £76,000.The loss will be £24,000,  compared to  the so called martingale strategy which will lose around £8,000.


This is why I have absolutely no trust or faith in charlatan mentors and educators.Most traders will make mistakes and mistakes make losing traders.Your back tests are conducted by the rational brain, your trading is done by other parts of the brain, you have to understanding trading psychology to understand this, most traders are clueless about psychology. Psychological mistakes are never  back tested and most back testing is useless.


Mistakes make losing traders







Most back testing is useless

If anybody wanted a bit of free advice, forward test on a demo account with I G , for a period of at least 1 year.This will help develop subconscious competence in a simulated environment. These are the real skills i.e mental and cognitive skills on how to tackle the real market.They just need to deposit £250  and get unlimited demo practice.

    • I don't know but it looks like a really awesome service Because I have come across all sorts of mixers in my work  
    • Charting the Markets: 2 June Indices rally as US agrees debt ceiling bill. EUR/USD, GBP/USD rally while EUR/GBP stabilises as US debt ceiling bill is passed. And WTI recoups recent losses while gold, silver on track for first weekly advance. Axel Rudolph FSTA | Senior Financial Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 02 June 2023               This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
    • It was a blockbuster number yesterday for the ADP private payrolls, showing 278,000 jobs opened in May, while forecasts had been for 170,000.  Jeremy Naylor | Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 02 June 2023 IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor suggests a similar upside surprise could see almost 300,000 jobs created under the non-farm payroll count with estimates for 190,000 job creations. The unemployment rate is seen rising one notch to 3.5%. (Video Transcript) NPFs: what to expect Could yesterday's strong private payrolls number from the ADP reading give us an insight into the potential upside risk to today's non-farm payrolls? That report from ADP yesterday showed 278,000 jobs opened in May - forecasts had been for 170,000. Now the NFP expectations, 190,000 job creations are forecast for the month of May proportionately using that ADP surprise. That would mean an upside reading for NFPs close to 300,000. Why the increase? Now, the unemployment rate is seen rising one notch to 3.5%. Why is that rising? When you've got that rise in the number of job creations, the unemployment rate is not taking the same data that the jobs numbers themselves are being produced from average hourly earnings. We're looking there for that to go up 0.3% month-on-month, 4.4% year-on-year, still below the rate of inflation. Now, this chart shows the unemployment rate back to pre-Covid-19 levels. It's clear that jobs have been created at an appreciable rate and this alongside a relatively strong GDP number and inflation coming down, there may yet be a soft landing for the US economy. But if the Federal Reserve (Fed) does continue to raise rates, things may get a little bit more sticky for the economy and a little bit more difficult to predict. This is a comparison of fed funds rates and US consumer price inflation (CPI) since January 2021. So you can see here the rate at which the US central bank has been piling the pressure on the monetary markets with that rise to five and a quarter percent. And at the same time, the CPI number is coming down, which is a good thing, but it's still not down to the 2% level, 4.9% is a long way away still from the 2% target. So the Fed is entitled still to have an excuse to raise interest rates. US dollar basket Let's take a look at what's been happening with the US dollar basket. Yesterday, we saw a pullback coming through as we saw money going into risk assets because of that rubber stamping from the Senate or the vote in the Senate to approve the budget that's now gone for the presidential seal. EUR/USD And we've seen a second day in a row of losses or the euro for the dollar basket as far as the euro/dollar is concerned, bouncing away from that 76.4% retracement. And I think now, you will have been stopped out if you were short on this, you would have been stopped out on this and hopefully you would have got some profits on the way down. So that's where things are ahead of non-farm payrolls out today at 13:30 UK time. And we will be live on the IG platform at 13:25 today.
