Martingale strategy Part 2

  1. 1. Martingale Strategy Part 2 By:
  2. 2. Martingale Strategy Part 2 Continuing the example from part 1, lets now consider what happenswhen you hit a losing run.
  3. 3. Martingale Strategy Part 2 Again, you hold $10and place an initial betof $1. You lose so your balance is now $9.
  4. 4. Martingale Strategy Part 2 So, you bet $2 next time, lose again and end up with $7. Onthe third bet you gamble $4 but as your losing streak persists, you now only have $3.
  5. 5. Martingale Strategy Part 2 You now do not haveenough money to “doubledown” so all you can do is gamble the reminder.
  6. 6. Martingale Strategy Part 2Lose again and you are down to nil but even ifyou do win, you are nowsome way from the $10 you started with.
  7. 7. Martingale Strategy Part 2You may believe that an extended sequence of losses would represent unusually bad fortune, but when dealing currencies, they are likely to trend and trends can last for a
  8. 8. Martingale Strategy Part 2 The key element with Martingale, is that by doubling down you basically reduce youraverage entering price.
  9. 9. Martingale Strategy Part 2In the following example, at 2 lots, you need the EURUSD to recover from 1.263 to 1.264 to break even.
  10. 10. Martingale Strategy Part 2 The price lowers so nowyou add 4 lots, but now youonly need it to comeback to 1.2625 instead of 1.264 to break even.
  11. 11. Martingale Strategy Part 2By adding more lots, you lower your average entry price. Even thoughyou may lose 100 pips on the initial lot of the EURUSD if the price hit1.255, you only need the currency to set to recover to 1.2569 to break even.
  12. 12. Martingale Strategy Part 2 Sooner or later, things mayturn in your favor, but with the Martingale Strategy you may not have sufficient money to keep up in the game long enough for that to happen
  13. 13. Martingale Strategy Part 2So this why you need deep pockets. If you could tradewith only $5000, you would bebankrupt before the EURUSDhad a chance to reach 1.255.

  19. 19. Martingale Strategy Part 2 In large amounts, the income from interestbecomes so substantialthat it can decrease the average entry price.
  20. 20. Martingale Strategy Part 2 In conclusion, enticing though the MartingaleSystem may see, to sometraders, severe caution isneeded if attempting this
  21. 21. Martingale Strategy Part 2 Mainly because even anapparently guaranteed trade may destroy your balance, just when you thought you were about to
  22. 22. Martingale Strategy Part 2In the long run, traders must question whether they are prepared to lose themajority of their money on a single trade.
  23. 23. Martingale Strategy Part 2As they need to do this just toaverage substantially smaller profits, several fell that theMartingale trading strategy issimply too hazardous for their liking.
