Does anyone managed to make more than 50% win rate, intraday, with same stop as target ?
Cm'on, it has just to be a bit better than flipping a coin...
Any idea, suggestion, strategy report, signal ?
Could be a new challenge idea for BigMike ;-)

I believe only in profits, not in prophets.

Most of my trades are :

4 tick stop

Target 1 - 4 ticks
Target 2 - 8 ticks
Target 3 - 12 ticks but managed to try to squeeze some out of runners

Not forex though, so as this is the forex section, I guess it doesn't count ;-)

As I am not owner of that holy grail system I can not answer your question.
If the system gives you consistent gains after slippage/commission over a
long period - you may make some good money. As long as your strategy
is not consistently positive - it might be better to use coin flipping instead.

The answer is of course.

I think no one is replying because the answer is obviously yes.

It's like the posts in the "10,000 in education" thread, where people were questioning if anyone could actually be profitable trading because no one ever sent the guy copies of tax returns showing profitability. Yes, of course.

You could have a system that could be 70 percent, but really, each trade you put on is a 50/50 chance. You'll never know the sequence. You'll never know. Let that sink in.

Process oriented goals #1.
