  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive in our community.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendors advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, we can help you find it.

(1) If you don't bet, you can't win.
(2) If you lose all your chips, you can't bet.

A Study in Risk Management and Position Sizing

For a system where the probability of failure for a trade is 55%, the probability of facing a minimum of K consecutive losing trades in 100 total trades is

K probability
-------------------
5 92.05%
6 72.9%
7 49.71%
8 30.68%
9 17.87%
10 10.09%
11 5.6%
12 3.08%
13 1.68%
14 0.92%
15 0.5%

Allowing profits to run + correct position sizing for the given trade risk = long-term success in the face of expected drawdowns.
