Anyone else experiencing a painful drawdown on Z12 since around November.

The reason I ask is my console is full of super annoying error messages that only started to appear when the weekend flag was taken away. I'm now doubting whether I have my setup configured properly but if the community was also experiencing a draw down, maybe it's just a grin and bear it time.

For the first 8 months of running zorro I saw very positive returns but CBI of 77% and Annual return currently of -42% is not fun!

Hi chsmac85, I remember reading here on the Z strategies thread, that you can not directly compare the trades and drawdowns on two independent Z12 instances, unless you have exactly the same starting date, capital , ini setup etc.

Draw down listed in the strategy description is 4 months, so your observation may be fine.

I would be worried about the error messages you mention though. I have no error messages with Z12 . As mentioned in the manual, we need to understand what we are using, the error messages should not be omitted.

Good luck ...

Not to mention - USA residents specifically are at a disadvantage when using the Z12 system:
  • Lack of fundamental diversification. From the default Z12 asset list, only foreign exchange instruments are permitted, and not CFD's.
  • Leverage is capped by law. (But if you're not really diversified, maybe this is a good thing.)

Globally, each broker has its own Forex and CFD contract specifications, as they are not exchange-traded. This necessarily means that results will vary.

Finally, you have the sequential consumption of margin issue as stated before, since this is not a portfolio rotation system.

Yes, I have been testing Z12 as well and got similar results like yours.
