You have more than doubled your money. That is excellent regardless of success rate. IMHO

its down to the amount of risk you are willing to accept and the account size you have. As long as you can be consistently in the green with a risk level that doesn't drive you personally mad its fine. A lot of people cant do that, that's why you see a lot lower winning %'s. I think this is where the psychological component comes in big time.

Win percentage is nothing to be overly concerned with.

What really matters is how much you are risking relative to the reward.

If you doubled an account in a few days the risk is likely way too much.

russian roulette has a positive expected return, but has a standard deviation that could kill you

however, that doesn't seem to be an issue here- doubling an account that small is not difficult and probably isn't the result of taking excessive risk, rather than a function of a skewed distribution

being under capitalized; the rake and grind is more likely to be the cause of ruin

so, more than ever...

average time in market and ratio average win/average loss and average etd are the metrics you should be concerned with

improving those stats, is the only way you can grow an account that uses a system with a negative expectation
