New Worst DD % approach

Monday, September 11, 2017 12:08 PM GMT

Following up the feedback from our users, Traders and Followers, we have decided to change what is shown under "Worst DrawDown" field on Trader's Individual performance page.

Although calculation formula remains the same, we have changed what is shown on our website.

Why did we proceed with the change?

The percentage was irrationally huge in lower time frames (below 1 month). This could be misleading because users could consider this drawdown as a real percentage loss in their equity. However, this is not true and could result in preventing users to follow reliable and solid Traders.

Traders’ performance is displayed based on pips. This was unfair those Traders with insufficient trading history. The WDD will also be displayed in pips after 3 months of trading activity. 

What has changed?

Worst DrawDown is displayed only in pips for timeframes: 1 day, 3 days, 1 week & 1 month

Worst DrawDown will be displayed in both pips and percentage for timeframes greater than 3 months.

For the rest of timeframes (3 months, 6 months, 1 year, Overall) nothing has changed

Worst DrawDown is available both in pips and percentage

Trading spot currencies involves substantial risk and there is always the potential for loss. Your trading results may vary. Because the risk factor is high in the foreign exchange market trading, only genuine "risk" funds should be used in such trading. If you do not have the extra capital that you can afford to lose, you should not trade in the foreign exchange market. Forex Brokers and ZuluTrade are compensated for their services through the spread between the bid/ask prices or there may be a cost to initiate a trade through the bid/ask spread.
