  1. I'll do it once and once only. That's my rule.

    Stratagy is the most important part of averaging down. While It might not be good for trend followers, for reversion to the mean trades it is almostr a neccesity. I couldn't make a penny without averaging down.

  3. Sounds like you might want to revisit your entry timing.

    Here I go. I am averaging down my russel short for the 6th day in a row. Oh why won't the koreans just blow something up? Geez, what's a guy gotta do to get a little bad news around here?

  5. The risk happens when the SPREAD of averages for both sides(winning and losing) of the same product YM using different accounts widens to a level your margin cannot contain it even though your total funds remains steady .
