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.
What time do you check the charts? Office hours here coincides with the European session.
