Simulated Loss Calculator

forex drawdown calculator


Please use the calculate function.

** This calculator is only for accounts that have not yet scaled. After you scale, our simulated loss system works differently. The relative drawdown becomes fixed at the balance you scaled to. For example, if you scaled to $1,000,000, the only drawdown-related metric to worry about is not going below $1,000,000. This number will not change with payouts, profit, or losses.
*** Daily simulated loss resets at 23:59 server time, which is 16:59 EST. The easiest way to tell when it resets, though, is by watching the clock at the bottom of your trading chart. This is the server time and is the same for everyone. It's great as it eliminates the need for any timezone conversions.

Importance of Drawdown Management

Effective drawdown management is a critical aspect of successful forex trading. Drawdowns, which refer to the temporary decline in a trading account’s equity from its peak, can have a significant impact on a trader’s emotional state, risk tolerance, and overall trading performance.

Proper drawdown management helps traders preserve their capital, maintain emotional discipline, and increase the longevity of their trading careers.

By understanding and anticipating potential drawdowns, traders can implement strategies to mitigate risk and protect their accounts from excessive losses. This includes adjusting position sizes, implementing stop-loss orders, and diversifying their portfolios across multiple currency pairs or trading strategies.

Traders who fail to manage drawdowns effectively may experience heightened stress, anxiety, and emotional decision-making, leading to impulsive trades and further losses.

Ultimately, effective drawdown management contributes to the longevity of a trader’s career by ensuring that they have sufficient capital to weather market fluctuations and capitalise on future opportunities. By preserving their capital and managing risk effectively, traders can increase their chances of long-term success in the forex market.
