Thanks, have not forgotten this - the quiz window is still open in my browser all this time. Just too busy lately.
The list is good, now I also need to spend time working on some chart markup as well.
Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.
Need help? 1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first. 2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses. 3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make. 4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance. 5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers. 6) Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

I stumbed across this thread and think it's a great idea (please can I have Fat Tails on my team!)
I would like to see some questions on risk.
Explain what mutiples of R is and how would you calculate it?
(R is short for Risk and is simply the amount of money risked on a trade. Multiples of R can be used to determine profit targets or as a metric to assess returns relative to average risk over a sequence of trades.)
What is Risk of Ruin?
(An estimate of the chances you will blow your account given historic payoff ratio, win ratio and % of capital risked per trade)
How would you calculate Payoff Ratio?
(Average winner$/Average loser$)
How would you calculate Expectancy?
((Win % * Av. Win) - (Loss % * Av. Loss))
What is the purpose of Monte Carlo testing?
(not a single answer to this one, but my take would be: understand the likely boundaries of maximum drawdown, max loss runs)
