Two different profiles of traders in different markets. It is not realistic to apply stats from small subset of non asset market broadly, The reason why theses traders are in riskier markets such as forex is for the higher return not win rate. Thatís why they are trading currency and not equities with higher win rate but lower return. It really has very little to do with win rate IMO. I have never tracked win rate in 16 years of value investing/trading equities and options

Volatility is good for the market and trading.

Preservation of capital is the most important concept for those who want to stay in the trading game for the long haul. - Van Tharp
