Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Hi guys,

Is there a single factor/ratio which take into account of both Risk/Reward and probability?

Yes, the expectancy takes into account the R-Multiple (ratio winning to losing trade) and the winning probability.

So does the Kelly Formula.

I'm interested in your initial idea, but there has also been lots of thought provoking commentary. Perhaps this is a naive question, but why has no one made a strategy to test the initial theory? It seems like it could settle some of the disagreements if you run it on multiple instruments/years. I tried to make one myself, but got stumped on a few aspects (beginner to NT7).

art or science

if we could have less on the losers and more on the winners we would have more money to spend at Christmas.

How are you going to make this happen?
