It measures the risk:reward ratio, showing you the average reward you are getting on each trade in the selected currency. So if you have a risk ratio of 1.5 in EURUSD, it means that for every 1 unit of the trade you are initiating, you're expected to get back 1.5 units.

More over, you can see from this statistic which currencies are your more profitable than others and based on that you can decide in which currencies to increase your position sizing, and which to lower, which will eventually increase your profitability.

K, but those values are all positive, where i do have losing pairs. Shouldn't they go negative?

We currently do not show negative risk ratios as we didn't feel it was necessary.
Ratios from 0 and up should give you a good overview of the currencies profitability.

Do you feel negative values would contribute also to the analysis?

I'd be able to see what pair is the most negative at a glance, provided I can look at monthly data for example. But right now it gives eurusd with a positive value, so it looks like a low yielding pair, instead of being shown as my biggest loser.

For me being able to zoom into pairs is critical. Big nice red bar would be nice yes.

Ok, I see you added the negative values.
It does make a difference and thank you!

If it moves up and down, and I can sell and buy it, I'll trade it!

I see, you got your answer already! By the way, according to me a fixed risk reward ratio is much helpful than the volatile one! This is why, I am working with the fixed one.

In Fx trading Mostly beginners are scared about using high leverage in Forex. It is quite right that choosing high leverage will cause the reason high loss but also can give the big profit , its overall risky to use the high leverage , my opinion is that we should use the small leverage in order to get the fruitful result from this business.

But if you have tiny account you are never going to make any money with a small leverage
