It seems to me that many traders consider a system/strategy built around risk/reward values based on a single trade. Either i am misunderstanding everyone or i have not been exposed to another opinion that suggests a different approach. It seems other considerations that may have an impact on profit over time are not being considered. I have read countless posts that suggest risk -to- reward values that suggest you make at least twice the reward or higher per trade -vs- the risk to be succesfull. Lets say you have a rock solid system/strategy that has an 80% success rate but the success rate is reliant upon a small profit accumulation over several trades. For example...if your strategy is successfull 4 out of 5 times and lets say the profit per trade is half a point consistantlly but the risk via stop loss is 1.25 points. Well that means .75 profit per 5 trades. If you have a dozen signals a day that can accumulate to a nice profit over time. It seems to me that this is very acceptable odds given the skewed risk/reward values. I am wondering what your opinions are and let me know if i am overlooking something or misunderstanding something important.
