 18 Oct 2016 5:34 AM permalink Zeb4x.ca Member Like UnLike Hi Denis, I read the section on understanding drawdown but was left confused. Is this the only formula used to calculate drawdown The Formula (100 + Equity Return %) / (100 + (n * Drawdown %)) ? If so an you tell me where does n come from? Do you know of any indicator that displays that magical number for us. If there is one I would sure like to have it. If there is none I may write it myself but would need to understand the math more. So "n".....how is it determined? Thanks

So "n".....how is it determined? Thanks Hi, The formula you have quoted is for the ranking in the Gain:Drawdown contest where n is a variable weighting in favour of Drawdown (we usually set n = 10) and ranking is based on highest value in Return/Drawdown column Drawdown formula is: 100 * (Equity High – Equity Low) / (Equity High + 100) However in this contest Winning Criteria: Maximum Equity % Return and ranking is based on highest value in Return column.

Ранее никогда не видел ограничений для трейдеров с Украины! Google Translate: Why to Ukraine can not be won a prize? Earlier never seen restrictions on traders from Ukraine! We received the list of ineligible countries from the broker 'ThinkMarkets'. Jurisdiction & regulation are why brokers deal/don't deal with residents from different countries.
