So you would need a success rate of 73% just to break-even. No errors allowed.

Getting a 73% rate is a little hard because the area where he enters is where a lot of stop running occurs. A lot of stop gather right outside the expansion bar so you very likely will get a 'pop' as stops are hit. You have to be quick sometimes the pop doesn't last long. But you can get in and out if the pop moves three ticks.

Traders do know this, and they will play games on the tape to get traders like this to bite.

His daytradetowin system is an opening range breakout system, so this kind of scalping system fits with that.

Don't worry. If he finds the batting average is going down, he'll simply increase the stop loss.

I know of a system that has over a 99% win rate: its PT is one tick and SL is nil.

Sorry about my previous post, double checked and it is not. The names were close to what I was thinking about though.

My apology.

Not really a special method.

I looked at the site and I have a very good idea on what the method is. Not something you cannot get for free on the 'inter-web'.

Hi traderwerks,

what IS your idea of this trade-setup ?
How do you think the trade-rules are ?

This system is well-known and widely used amongst professionals. All rational traders can use it, if they do not trade their own money. They get a bonus for the large part of their trades and the employer or the taxpayer takes the one large loss that comes up occasionally. Moral hazard is all about false incentives.

If you trade this system yourself, you are not confronted with moral hazard, but you need to take some money out of your account regularly, before you blow it all up.

Pretty much the same as Fat Tails except I call the expansion bar a pivot high or low.
