Unfortunately, like I said, it's not really feasible for instruments like CL because of the discrete nature. Unless you're trading a lot of contracts, a 10% increase in position size isn't feasible....

It would be interesting to see the results of a random distribution of 55% outcome probability with a fractional position increase of 50%,

Then compare that to the same distbrution with a...

Well, the posts above tend to prove otherwise. Unless you're trying to argue that trades aren't mutually exclusive, which is debateable, but difficult to prove.

So now we're getting somewhere...if you develop a "random" strategy, that improves upon the simple progressive strategy, then fill me in:becky: I'm all ears.

But "random" isn't very comforting to...

I give up.

You guys are right.

All I'll close with is saying that it's a similar concept as performance enhancing drugs in baseball.

Even if the events are mutually exclusive it follows.

here's an example.

Let's say you had a typical 6 sided die....and if you rolled a 1,2,3 or 4, that's considered a win. If you rolled a 5...

Again, no one is disputing that. What I'm simply saying is that IF you develop a strategy based on experience, backtesting, whatever, and it enjoys a greater than 50% win rate in the past, and you...

No, the probability of any individual outcome is still 50%. So you cannot predict anything going forward. However, you know that the likelihood of an uneven distribution (for a finite sample set)...

No. Again, you're looking at the wrong resolution. I'm not making ANY predictions about singular events. I'm talking about STRINGS.

You're still not grasping my point. I'm not interested in single events....I'm interested in the inherent strings present in samples that are not evenly matched.

It is MATHEMATICALLY impossible...
