  1. What is Martingale method ?

    A martingale is any of a class of betting strategies that originated from and were popular in 18th century France. The simplest of these strategies was designed for a game in which the gambler wins his stake if a coin comes up heads and loses it if the coin comes up tails. The strategy had the gambler double his bet after every loss, so that the first win would recover all previous losses plus win a profit equal to the original stake. The martingale strategy has been applied to roulette as well, as the probability of hitting either red or black is close to 50%.

How could you manually-exit your trade when price instantly jump after the announcement and end up 445 pips in just 10 minutes? Power failures, lost of internet connections, computer crashes are other reasons not to use mental Stop-Loss.    Waiting Price to Come BackM…
