  • Should Signals be Combined or Kept Separate?

    What would be better:

    1. Follow signals at standard risk say 1.0x in separate accounts


    2. Combine two signals at 0.5x, four signals at 0.25x and so on....

    Any idea guys???

    it depends who you're following and how he trades.

    if you follow a trader who is after big gains, everyone, including himself, will tell you to get ready for a big dd at some point, in wich case you need a separate account.

    you can follow two or more signals on one account if the traders keep the drawdown low.

    there are variations, such as dial down the risk for the more "aggresive", so to call him, trader and run him along more conservative signals on the same account.

    in reality, it's all up to you.

    look at their track records and you'll have a pretty good idea about what to do.

    in my mind, there's nothing wrong with two signals on one account, you just need to do a bit of homework and dont push it, obviously.

      I prefer to choose to follow one signal at standard risk. But you have to make sure that the signal provider was profitable.
