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.
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
True, but based on MPT, and trader B knows what he is doing, it greatly reduce portfolio volatility with negative correlation pairs. Your investor will see stable growth and losses.
Trader A, IMO. As mentioned, if ROI and Drawdown and all stats are the same so inherently portfolio volitility will be the same also. I chose Trader A, because they are specialized in those few pairs along with a strategies for different market conditions of those pairs. This type of trader is better because trades will come to them versus Trader B where they are constantly looking for traders. Therefore, Trader A would have a less stressful lifestyle and more time to enjoy the trader lifestyle.
