Forex Trading Systems

  1. 1. Forex Trading Systems: Why winning 90% of the time may not be a good idea
  2. 2. Listen! What if I told you… <ul><li>“I have a trading system that can win 90 out of 100 trades!” </li></ul><ul><li>Would you be willing to pay $100 to learn this system? </li></ul>
  3. 3. If you answered “Yes”… <ul><li>…You’re in trouble!  </li></ul>
  4. 4. The Truth About Winning Percentages <ul><li>Unfortunately, the truth is that a high winning percentage has little to do with being a profitable trader. </li></ul><ul><li>In reality, it’s easy to have 90% of winning trades and still be a losing trader. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Don’t believe me? Allow me to explain: <ul><li>Imagine you make 10 trades: </li></ul><ul><li>9 of these trades are winners </li></ul><ul><li>1 of these trades is a loser </li></ul><ul><li>That gives you a 90% winning trade percentage. </li></ul><ul><li>But does that mean you’re making money? </li></ul>
  6. 6. Nope! Not always! <ul><li>You can still be a losing trader if: </li></ul><ul><li>Your profitable trades make $1 each </li></ul><ul><li>Your non-profitable trade loses you $10 </li></ul><ul><li>That makes a total of… </li></ul><ul><li>($1x9) – ($10x1) = -$1 !!! </li></ul>
  7. 7. And that’s how bad traders lose money… <ul><li>Do you now understand how anyone can still be a losing trader even with a high winning trade percentage? </li></ul><ul><li>At the same time, you can be a winning trader even with a low winning trade percentage… </li></ul>
  8. 8. So don’t get tricked! <ul><li>In reality, winning trade percentages have very little to do with trading success. </li></ul><ul><li>So don’t fall into the advertisers’ trap when you see their “high winning percentage” claims next time. </li></ul><ul><li>When people use winning percentages as a sales pitch, it’s likely that they don’t know much about trading at all! </li></ul>
