I use this formula for determining the winning percentage required for an expectancy of 0 ie break even :


WP = Winning pct
AW = Average win
AL = Average loss


WP = 1 / ( ( AW/AL ) +1 ) .

So in your case it would be :

WP = 1 / (( 0.75 ) +1 ) = 0.57 ie 57 % required for break even

That's exactly what i needed. Thanks my dear i was on the verge to call @baruchs for help.

One problem with those static calculations is that one can hit ruin before breakeven.
