Risk/Reward link with Win rate


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I read this article about how risk/reward and win rate and linked.  The thing is though in order to use the cheat sheet for risk/reward and win rate, you need to know what your win rate is first based on historical trades?  But to do that you had to have decided on a risk/reward ratio already when setting limits/stops?  I feel like this is a chicken and egg situation.

What this is suggesting is that if your win rate is higher you can have more risk and less reward e.g the last row in the table is 75% win rate gives 0.3:1 reward to risk.  But if you look at it a different way is it not like saying take more risk and you will win more?

Hi, yes I cover this quite extensively in the 'Trade Planning and Testing' thread where there is also a link to download a basic free spreadsheet that will auto calc cumulative win rate and cumulative risk reward that you can plot onto the profitability graph chart.

Hi

I put Trade Planning and Testing in the search but it didn't return anything with that title. Do you have a direct link?

 

Thanks

    • Mathews Darcy mentioned that the quarterly production report released by BHP Group recently showed strong performance in copper and iron ore businesses, but adverse weather conditions affected coal production. Despite the upward trends in copper and iron ore prices, the market response to the stock price of BHP was relatively subdued. This article will delve into the analysis of the quarterly report of BHP Group and discuss its impact on the stock market and the reactions of investors. Quarterly Performance and Market Response Mathews Darcy pointed out that despite price increases in copper and iron ore on Wednesday, the stock price of BHP only saw a slight growth after the quarterly report release, reflecting the tepid response of investors to the report. Particularly noteworthy is the decline in the stock price of BHP amidst significant overnight increases in copper and nickel prices and iron ore prices maintaining a six-week high. Additionally, Mathews Darcy noted that major brokerage firms have begun adjusting their ratings and price targets for BHP based on the latest quarterly data. Several brokerage reports indicate that despite strong demand for copper and iron ore, the overall performance of BHP did not meet market expectations, possibly due to production constraints in its coal division. Investment Strategies and Future Outlook Mathews Darcy advised that when considering BHP stock, investors should carefully analyze the performance of its various divisions and future market prospects. While price fluctuations in mineral resources offer profit opportunities for BHP, investors should also be aware of the potential impact of price fluctuations on company performance. Furthermore, paying attention to brokerage research reports and rating updates will help investors better understand market dynamics and potential investment risks. Mathews Darcy also emphasized the importance of diversified investments, especially in an industry facing price volatility and geopolitical risks. Diversifying investments among different resource stocks can effectively reduce the impact of single market fluctuations on the investment portfolio.
