Win Rate - futures trading

Win Rate

The percentage of winning trades from a sample (group) of trades.

Win Rate (% wins) = number of wins divided by total number of trades.

Refer also: Win/Loss Ratio

The win rate is the probability of a winning trade. It is NOT the probability of profitability. For that, calculate expectancy because the size of the wins vs losses matters. A lot. For example, a profitable trading system may win less than 50% of the time if the wins are bigger than losses. Likewise, its certainly possible to lose money on a system with an extremely high win rate when that one big monster loss comes along to wipe out all previous gains.
