Cairo works on the real USD account trading a EUR/USD currency pair. The system has won all trades it has worked on so far. Anyway, it requires 15-17 profitable trades to cover a single loss after reaching a Stop Loss level. Without x4-x6 Martingale, it will be hard to recover. Summing everything up, we’re sure the system should run the account for half a year to see how it will handle losses.
