Unfortunatly statistics is not my strong suit. I have a question about probability of win/loss of the next trade after a loss or losing trade. A system is profitable 65% of the time. When I drill down to the Losing series of trades (consecutive losing trades). 90% of the time, after 2 losing trades there is a winning trade. About 75% of the time there is a winning trade after one losing trade. So my question is, what about just taking a trade after waiting for one or two losing trades? So trade one profit, trade two profit, trade three loss. Why not just wait to take a trade after trade three? In black jack when the card count is high, the odds favor a player to bet big. Isn't the same true here? I am sure I am not the first person to think of this, what are the issues involved with such a strategy? Thans very much.
