Disliked[font=Times New Roman][size=3]My trading model has allowed me to profit on 75% of my trades over the last several years, but does that mean anything really, when compared to someone who wins 30% of their trades? Emphatically NO! The point is that it comes down to risk and money management and I know many new traders hate to hear those basic terms, but if you have a good RR ration on the winning trades, you can still make money over the long haul just winning 30% of the time. Even if many of us could have found a way to win 95% of our trades, we...Ignored
I would also add to the equation frequency (number of trades per period of time). Very high probability patterns are also very rare, usually. So even if the 95% system may have a higher expectancy than your 30% winning system you might grow your account more rapidly with your current 30% by trading more often. Hope I made sense here.
It depends... It is a numbers game...
