It is difficult to find a perfect strategy that can withstand the test of time when market conditions constantly change. That’s why it’s important to refine your strategies periodically, even when it’s working well. A key metric to look out for in a successful trading system is the maximum drawdown (max loss from a peak to a trough of a portfolio). Remember, a 50% loss requires a 100% rise to breakeven.
