In my trading life I have found that one thing can make you profitable. Higher Reward Risk Ratio. Let me do a little math:
Say you have traded 50 trades and in 50 trades you have won only 20 trades and earned 2 times of your risk.
Say your risk is 2% per trade.
From 20 winning trades your gain is: 20*4%=80%.
From 30 losing trades you are loss is:30*2%=60%. Right?
Then your profit is:80%-60%=20% Awesome!!! That is trading.
In myfxbook's account you should not follow guys whose Sharpe Ratio and Expectancy is negative. The higher these two values are the better traders he is.
My target is to make the Sharpe Ratio>2 and Expectancy is always positive.
I have developed this system in last couple of years. I think following me can give you better trades.
