I take the simple rule that if it looks too good to be true then it probably is. Win rates of 90%, +1000% gains, all that just says scammer to me. A real trader has losing days, weeks even months, Sometimes even quarters can be losers. If the chart looks 'messy' but positive then I will consider them legit

Almost 60,000 trades and never a loss.

And hiding the history so you can't see how they generated the fake stats.



And of course, there is the problem that someone already says they got ripped off by the scammer.





Here is the link to the stats page for the above images:

Of course, pro trades also face few losses in their trading, but the thing is; they can overcome so smartly.

Even the best traders in the world have periods where they don't win.

Win rate doesn't matter a trading system should have positive expectancy in long run, for example, a trend following system has the win rate of 40-45% only but the risk/reward ratio is more than 2 so a trading system should have the mathematical edge no matter what win rate is.

The market will trade through it’s path of least resistance .

The best traders I've seen have 60-70% win rate. But you should not confuse win rate with profitability.
You can have 40% win rate and still be profitable. It's all about the strategy and lot sizes.

Right no one has 100% winning rate in the forex world but what matters is your profit should be more than your losses.

I think, 75% success ratio would be enough; if a trader follows the money management rules so honestly.

You right.

Winning rate is not really a good KPI even if you may have a good one :

In this test, we are at 5 looses out 52 trades then about the 90% of winning rate with a 10'000 USD live account (just started we will see after)

The core is the money management and your winning/losing pips goals by trades.

Usually people with high winning rate have a low average win that pushes them to have a too high stop loss and very low winning goals then you have a model very weak....
