This week, my portfolio return to drawdown results from 23-th week. This situation clearly show us, how important money management and keep emotions is. What would happen if I doubled my MM in all strategies, as I would like to recover quickly from the last trading week? I would lose what I earned in the last six months.

Don't let emotions (whatever they are) influence the decisions you make.
