Trader A is obviously a specialist. Trader B diversifies. But what's to say trader A is simply just comfortable doing their thing and can't be bothered trading everything. That is the thing really. Neither is better, and as the saying goes, there is no room for ego's in trading. Once you become complacent and think your sooo good you can't go wrong, there's a big dick sneeking up on you from behind that is going to do you when you least expect it, if you know what i mean. I'd pick the trader that does their own thing and does not boast. Better long term. Style means nothing. There is no right or wrong way to trade. Period.

I'll take the money thanks, you can have the pips..

I personally like long-term trading, this is why, for me the answer is trader A.

It is all down to personal preference. For some people if they are only looking at a few pairs, it is easy to over trade and see things that are not there. But likelwise if you trade too many pairs then you never get to understand any

Wow, that’s really great! By the way, do you completely ignore short term trading style like scalping?

Of course ultimately, it is about preference and what you value, but just for discussion/fun's sake, let's do this.

Who is a better in this scenario, assuming they both have the same ROI, drawdown, win rate and whatever statistics (lot size) you deem to be important-Trader A: the trader that trades the same few pairs over and over or Trader B: the trader that is able to trade many different pairs?

Trader A is obviously skilled in the sense that he is able to capture the trend moves, counter-trend moves, all the small and big moves in that same few pairs. On the other hand, Trader B is able to understand and execute across different pairs.

Who, in your opinion, is the better trader, assuming you got to pick one.



I don't think one really is better than the other. I think trader B can have just as much knowledge of trends as trader A does.

Agree with you EU; since their types are different; we can’t compare a blower with batsman.

For manual trading it is better to go with A as trader cannot focus on more pairs properly.
For EA multiple pairs - B, is the choice as EA can handle this properly and diversify the risk

There shouldn't really be such a division between A and B. Surely a very good trader will be good at capturing trends and profiting from many different markets. I think this is a false comparison

You cannot have same volatility for Trader A and Trader B and bound to have lower volatility when you cross-trade pairs.
Stability is key for your future investors.

if you cannot make profit at 1 pair - do not go at multipair trading, because it will make your problems x-times more you have added pairs in your system. Trader A better in this case. Trader B more like dont know ewhat to do but believe in something that he not understand
