See for yourself: the initial deposit=602usd, the profit=516usd, the withdrawal is significantly higher than the deposit.

How can we calculate the increase=-18% in this scenario ?

Exactly, the problem of the user who leaked the account

clearly on the face.

An account that has been drained once no longer has a chance to live.

I completely agree with you. My situation is even more interesting. The absolute value of profit is in the black, but the increase is -100%. Alexander, I suggest that we cooperate and look for a solution to the problem together. There are no competent people here.

Your formula is not correct because it does not meet the stated goal, namely:

to form an idea of the profitability of the signal depending on the current deposit.In addition, the results of calculating the increase in the presence of a withdrawal of funds and the current negative profit simply KILL the signal by bringing it to a total minus with the inability to restore the positive value of the increase, regardless of the further huge profitability.

From the point of view of the subscriber, the money on the balance sheet is 100% of the available capital. After your withdrawal, trading continues as before, for the subscriber, the second option will mean zeroing the deposit.

You probably didn’t notice that the two options listed are identical in their result: You didn’t earn anything and you didn’t lose anything.

Only in the second option there was a withdrawal of funds, which leads to the calculation of the Increase=-100%.

It stops working adequately if the profit for the local calculation period goes into negative territory.

This situation develops when you withdraw the profit.

This can be easily verified by analyzing the existing calculation algorithm:
