Hi Team,

I am looking for a canned pos-sizer solution that will enable me to test a strategy using the Max Percent Risk ALONGSIDE a Max Percent Drawdown (By Period).

For instance.... a max percent risk of 2% and a Max Percent Drawdown of 20% per month.
In this instance, if we have a intraday month drawdown >20%, trading would stop and resume the following month.

Any thoughts would be appreicated, thank you in advance

Here's it, available in MS123 PosSizer library (restart WLD after installing):

Thanks Eugene, this is great.
We don't have the ability to change the period by any chance ? (weekly/monthly).

No, we don't. That would take us to develop a new, Weekly logic (that wasn't requested before).
