When you make a strategy validation, you must indicate the initial deposit, this will be the account balance simulation before initiating the robot.
To do so, in the validation screen you will find the balance and currency field so that you can simulate your strategy with the balance quantity and currency that you prefer.
It should be pointed out that it is important to be aware of the balance when making the simulation, just like the size of each contract we want to open.
For example, if we operate with a balance of €10,000 and our orders make approximately, €500 profits and losses that would suppose a 5% profit/loss for each operation.
If we simulate the same strategy with a balance of only 1000€ it will suppose 50% of our account.
In the second case, we would have significantly increased the risk of the strategy, due to operating with too many batches in comparison with the balance. In addition to the risk, the result of the operation will be useless as with only 2 consecutive loser operations the simulation will end due to lack of funds.
TIP: start working with a more than enough balance to evaluate your strategy. You must first focus on the mathematic expectation: percentage of success, average profit, and average loss. The monetary management, which includes aspects such as proportion between account balance and size of each order, must be applied at the end of the validation process.
