Profitable but...

    Let me know what I have to do:

    We have just develloped a new TS system.

    We have good profits from year 2000 till now.
    Problem is that in 1999 there is a big loss (year total -$21 000).

    Do you advise me not to work with this system because it's too dangerous or can I start with it? ('99 is already 4 years ago..).

    Post all the details. For example, was most of the $21,000 loss over a couple of trades or many? Etc, etc. Without hard statistics on how many trades, what the biggest winner is, the biggest drawdown, etc etc, any advice is meaningless.

  3. Give us the % win
    Give us the average gain, month by month
    Give us the profit factor
    and give us a picture of the equity curve!!
