  2. So random entries plus risk management yield positive expectancy and thus profit? That's hard for me to believe. Making money in the markets is predicated on being right about something. Risk management helps mitigate the times when we are not right.

    being right + risk management = profitability

    Prudent Risk Management is all that is available to the retail trader. It IS the edge.
