MNQ and MES $0.5 per side.
2. How is the Maximum Drawdown Calculated During My Live Account?
Maximum Drawdown is $800 and it is Trailing Drawdown. Meaning that it will take in consideration realized and unrealized profits to be calculated and it will trail until the Initial Account Balance it is met.
Ex. If you start your trading day at $9,000, then you win a trade for $300 but on the next trade you lose $100, at the end of the day, your Account Balance will be $9,200 and your Drawdown will be $8,500.

5. Which Economic Releases Should I Be Flat For?
