86% win ratio. Would have been 100% but I didn't want to leave trade open when I went to bed.
1.5% drawdown.

I suppose real trading will be different!!!

Nobody wins 100% over the long haul. Top money managers are happy with a 60-70% win rate. They know that limiting risk and letting profits run will allow for an excellent return.

I started a thread for new traders in the hopes of helping those new to forex:

Come on over and ask any questions you may have!

Cheers

Don't run after 100% profit. It's not possible.
For now you where just lucky.

Plan your trades carefully do not base them on your emotions...
Trade your plan!

Dont get to hung up on win ratio,as long as your winning trades are bigger than your lossing trades,you can have a 40% win ratio and still be in profit.True professional traders do aim for 70% no less,2% loss on a retail trade,5% on a portfolio ,mess up on risk management and your security card gets deleted during lunch break.

Be lucky!

I agree with this. If you just counting on your win/lose ratio, you might get yourself full with pride, which is not really good for a trader. Remain neutral and never stop learning. Your loss experience is your best teacher. As long as you willing to learn how to be profitable, you're a good trader.

For having this winning ratio, you should be happy. Do not give up because of short term drawdown. Keep your reasons strong. So that you are confident enough to accomplish what you are looking forward to.

Surely this all is mostly truth though too many people seem to perceive trading as 'game', which is, in my humble opinion, not exactly the way to become a professional.

I cannot agree more with those 2 comments. Pride and anger are really bad enemies for the trader. But you know it won’t be easy to remain neutral. You have to experience win and lose then to keep a good discipline on both conditions.

Hi kieran, I checked the website of chasingreturns. It looks helpful, but do you know if I can use only the trial or should I continue after that with the paid version. If the trial is nothing special then maybe I should not start at all? Can you give me your advice regarding chasingreturns, it will be helpful for everyone.
