ok, I've finally gotten my act together. I'm consistently profitable and found a way to take me and my emotions out of my trading. Now I'm ready to start making some serious money. To do this I have to scale up. I have a small account so I don't think using a % risk per-trade is appropriate. What I'd like to do is add a contract in such a way that I'm only risking all the profits from the previous level (but no more). I'm guessing to do this all I have to do is estimate my max drawdown and then figure out how much profit I need to make before I can add a contract. For example, if I estimate my max drawdown for one contract is $1,000 then to go to 2 contracts I'd need $2,000 in profits. Then to get to a third contract I'd need another $3,000 in profits. If I started with $10,000 for one contract then I'd go to 2 when the account hit $12,000 and go to 3 when the account hit $15,000. I'm just trying to avoid gaining some money and then losing it all along with more money just because I screwed up my sizing. Is this the approach other guys with small accounts are using?
