Relatively speaking, the system's drawdowns are actually manageable, because what's imperative, is to look at it's risk/reward ratio.

If a system's average reward is larger than the average risk as is the case here, then drawdowns shouldn't really be a problem.

So for example, maybe you might have a 200pip drawdown, but if the profit is 300pips, then really, the drawdown isn't actually "huge". A scalping system that has 10pip SL and 2pip TP has huge drawdowns, relatively speaking.
