What is the size of the stop loss set in the settings of your followers?
the 500 pips SL you'll see in my positions are the default provided by Zulutrade for each position I open using their trading system. Since I trade manually and monitor each position since I open it until the moment I close it I usually won't change it. looking in my stats you'll see the worst DD I had for a single trade is 206 pips. I will rarly get there as you'll see in my history but it can happen in the future. So I would say setting 250 pips as a SL would do the job (don't forget to manage your money properly according to that). Good luck!
