  1. For those of you who are experienced traders with a long enough track to be able to make historical conclusions: How much do you make before your lose, i.e. for each $1000 you make how much do you lose? Do you go in like 2 steps forward, 1 step backward?
  2. After compiling many trades, I checked for the longest losing streaks and how much money was lost during that losing streak. Then I take that amount of money and add it to my miniumum trading amount .

    For example, if in a 25 trade losing streak and I lose $25,000 ($1000 per trade); I'll keep an extra $25,000 in my account at all times.

    Incidently, this method is the one I use at the end of every quarter to decide how much money to leave in my account for the next quarterly trading period.
