Risk of Martingale Strategy in Forex Education_xx
Basically, the Martingale technique will multiply Lot units (volume trading) under certain conditions, to achieve large profits in a position that is able to cover the total loss from previous losing positions.

The conditions for running the Martingale strategy can be described like this:

    1. If the position wins, keep the initial Lot amount.
    2. If the position is lost, multiply the number of lots in the next trading position.
    3. If the amount of margin that is insufficient is required, use all remaining Margins.
       Repeat steps 1 to 3 until the last position gets a profit, or until the account is unable to open a trading position    again

You really don't need complicated calculations to imagine how high the risk of Martingale is. Only by highlighting Lot's multiplication mechanism, can you imagine that the risk of Martingale's strategy is indeed high. However, increasing the number of lots is tantamount to increasing risk.

The martingale strategy in my opinion is quite risky because besides requiring a large margin, traders who are still beginners will have difficulty implementing this strategy.

so far I have never seen any specific strategy for the martingale strategy and its MM settings, so many traders lose using this strategy.

I don't like trading with Martingale because it often makes me margin call.

martingale's strategy is indeed quite effective but not in all market conditions this strategy can be carried out, martingale is also a risk strategy because it requires a large margin.

it turns out that the martingale strategy can also be safeguarded by risk management, I think such a strategy is a strategy of dying.

The main attraction of the Martingale strategy is the simple premise, that only one winning position is needed to make up for losses from previous losing positions

this kind of strategy is known to be dangerous and indeed we must be experienced in using it, including when to use it and to what extent we use it.

Martingale is a trading strategy based on probability theory developed from popular gambling techniques. But the Martingale Strategy can also be applied in forex trading.

Even though the risk of the Martingale strategy is high, there are certain methods for overcoming the burden, including using small lots.

IF you want to use martinggale on forex martingale it is better to use in areas that are already saturated or overbough / oversold, and are very suitable for use on the RSI indicator when the rsi is ovrbought / sold, then martinggale is played ... The RSI is usually not too long ... just need the price to turn around just a little, immediately profit and all losses are covered.
