Martingale trading strategy

Definition

Forex

  • A speculative approach based on a betting system popularized in eighteenth century France where a trader doubles their stake after each loss until they ultimately win. The profitability of the Martingale trading strategy depends on how deep the speculator's pockets are since that determines whether they can afford a string of losses before they win.
