Hi everyone,

I am running a bi directional grid trading strategy and my risk of ruin currently shows I have a <.01% of losing 10% of my balance with 35 consecutive losing trades. Is this considered good or bad on myfxbook?

I was also curious if anyone knew what a proper sharpe ratio is? Mine is currently .29, does anyone know if that is considered good or bad?

Thanks!

That risk of ruin is completely useless
You have to calculate it yourself based on your strategy risk setting

Oh okay, that is good to know! I was worried that maybe this helps dictate how good my strategy is doing.

Thanks for the insight.

 One wrong move and all risk analysis is thrown into garbage.

I'm sure there's some sense in it, although I don't understand how it works either.

Sharpe ratio...I think anything above 1 is good? The higher the better.

Nope. You can best calculate your own system risk.
You just need grammar school math, nothing else.

Forex is the platform where you can earn a big amount of money. But to earn money you need to have proper knowledge and experience. Otherwise, you will lose all your money in this market.

I use a maximum of 5% risk per trade and my risk-reward ratio is 1:3.

The optimum option for risk management practice is to open a position with no more than 5% from your total deposit. Moreover, you have to use sl and tp in order to reduce risks during trading. Guess that the best ratio is 1:3. It affords you to earn money and not to lose it actually. Nevertheless, everybody decides by himself which risk percentage to choose. There are some traders who open position with 20-30% from their total deposit and it's very risky.
Anyway, you have to be acquinted with the theory of risk management and money management practices in order to understand their mechanics.
