Expectancy = Average Trade

(Van Tharp also has an expectancy I call "Tharp Expectancy" = avg trade/avg losing trade)

Would you mind explaining the best way of calculating expectancy? avg trade/avg losing trade doesnt factor in how much was risked per trade and according to The Van Tharpe website this needs to be part of the calculation.
