This is the trading year 2015 and in this automated video we are trading the Accumulation Distribution entry with a risk setting of 10.
Sometimes you need to decide if you would rather go for a bigger profit or if you want to avoid a bigger draw down.
In my case I almost always pick the lower draw down, because I know that one big draw down could wipe out my whole account.
But there are also people who might feel comfortable with a bigger risk.
It always depends on the person in front of the screen how the “right” risk would be defined.
The Robot Trading System has a switch for that risk setting.
It also can deal with floating type values, so you are able to finetune your settings.
For me a good risk reward ratio would be a system where the balance curve and the equity curve look like a train track.
Even if the account growth is smaller, a smaller drawdown is often worth it.
Most people kill their account with a too high risk, so it is always a good idea to test and adjust your risk setting carefully.
