I had it twice, that I was 40 in profit and then I was 40 in a loss. I'd wish that I would have taken or could take the profit before it's gone because it hurts a bit to observe that a winning position is turning into a losing position.

Is there a way to do that without negatively influencing the algorithm? Should I drag the panic slider until the position is closed? But all positions would be influenced by it.

Or do I need to get used to the "set and forget" philosophy? I mean statistically, the outcome will be positive. Maybe I am observing it too much and should let it go?

How are you handling it my fellow Zorro fans? :-)

This is a frequent situation. The Z systems do lock profit, but only extreme profits, not 40 Eur. More aggressive locking reduces statistically the end result. So yes, fire and forget.

I've had the same issue. There's a balance of about 1-2 times a day of checking to make sure nothing crazy has happened that I've found works for me. I might revert to once a week once I am confident there aren't any issues. I've been running live for about a month now.

Do you use the Capital slider to reinvest?

Hey man.
Would you mind telling us which strategy and assets are you using for that real account? I could use more info like balance amount, win rate, performance and thinks like that
Thanks.
