MAN vs MACHINE
(as fxtime called it - some kind of modern turtle experiment. For the moment strictly intraday.)
So there is nice way for first look at trader performance.
And it definitely not resticted to algo trading ;-)
Part #1 of the Rule Set.
You trade for 20 consecutive days.
You have a 'notional' account size of 15K.
Your max. postion size is 2 lots at any time. You trade max. 2 different markets in these 20 days.
You can trade 24h, but no overnight positions allowed. You are flat 5pm NY.
When you are down 1500 USD from the initial account (account < 13.5K) you are OUT.
When you are down 1000 USD on the day you stop trading for this day.
Your target is 3000 USD P&L (account > 18K).
