P.S: while all of these may not fit into your own trading plan, some of there rules could help individuals decrease drawdowns.
-Make limiting your drawdowns in capital your number one priority, not your profits. it's much easier to be profitable when you don't lose a lot of money.
-Never lose more than 2% of your total trading capital on any single trade.
-Do not over expose your account to too many positions that are all closely correlated to the same trend.
-Only take your highest probability entry singles.
-Only trade one to three open position at a time, so even big whipsaws in price action do not damage your account too much.

-Only trade markets you are very familiar with, and have done excessive research on with charts and backtests.
-Trade only a method you fully understand, and do not piggy back on another trader.
