Losing Streaks

This money management method is the exact opposite of Winning Streaks, and increases trade size after successive losing trades. It's also called the "Martingale" method i.e. double trade size on loss. The difference to Martingale is that you have fine control over the size. The logic is that every losing streak eventually ends, so the odds the next trade will be a winner are always increasing during such a streak.

Each consecutive losing trade increases the position size, determined by one of the three Wealth-Lab's standard choices, by a specified percentage amount (Increase %). To prevent from creating a potentially harmful position, you can stop increasing the size after a predefined losing streak. Finally, increasing the size will stop after the first winning trade.
