Trade statistics

  1. Hi

    I would like to get an idea of what kind of trade stats people have to see what is possible, and/or common. This is not about $ - that depends on account size and risk - its about expectancy.

    I'll start:

    -Style: I swingtrade stocks for average holds of 5 days
    - Frequency: On average closing one trade per day.
    Over the last 40 trades:
    -W/L: Average win to average loss is 2.0:1 (exactly).
    -Win%: 51%.

    Average loss does not equate to average risk as stops are moved up as a trade progresses.

    What do other people do, for interest?

    PS: For those who dont keep stats, it is enlightening.
