Welcome to futures.io.

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.

Evaluating 2 strategies

Hello, I'm seeking inputs for evaluating 2 similar strategies. A has around 50% win rate, win/loss ratio is about 3:2, but trades more frequently. B has higher 60% win rate, win/loss ratio is very close to A, and trades less. The profits come out close. I'm having a hard time deciding between the two. Is there anything else I'm missing?

Thank you!

trade what works till it doesnt work. If you have two methods that are profitable trade them both till your b@!!s fall off.
