Core concept of profitable trading

What is the core concept of profitable trading .

In my experience is that
Trading is a 50% probability Game
So, Min Loss - Max Gain ( Risk Reward Ratio).

If i made 20 trades than 12 trades are loosing trades 8 are profitable, I loose -100 rupees on loosing trade, and gain +200 rupees on winning trade
10012= -1200
8=+ 1600

With 40% accuracy

At the end the profit is : 400

I think you answered it yourself as far as the mathematical equation is concerned ( risk/reward overlaid with success rate ). But at an individual level, what it really comes down to is figuring out and then staying put with a strategy that works for you at an emotional level.

These days with all kinds of backtesting made possible, I would expect a large number of people trading strategies that have had a positive expectancy. Yet, a large majority struggle to make money consistently simply because they are not wired for those strategies.

Backtesting is not a simple exercise. To do it properly one needs bit of experience and insight.

The reply you gave was like a machine, not as human, so called you bot :grin:

If so I would give ChatGPT a run for its money :sweat_smile:

I’m not falling for your mind games, still think you are a bot!

I request for an audit report from CA @Jason_Castelino on me being human :rofl:

An audit report requires an UDIN number which can be allotted only if the CA is registered as a member of ICAI.
I tired to sound like a bot. But I guess I failed. :grimacing:

No. I am batman. Ssshhhhh. 🫣

@GB26 I asked this question to ChatGPT and then


Try explaining that to Public toilets.

The above discussion has been hidden, so will be this, so :man_facepalming:

I like this guy. Free promotion. :hugs::hugs:
Soon members here will think you get kickbacks from me. (Just like I thought you get kickbacks from Dhan) 🫣 :stuck_out_tongue: :stuck_out_tongue::stuck_out_tongue:

I made my point. Well. Actually nothing thats public is free.

Edit. Most of the things.

I was just saying in the sense if something something is public domain, then it is free.

Or like a public library.

Who ever is good, I promote them free for the greator good of this community.

then assume, if I want to make a final profit of 1 lakh rupee, then I want to make 3 lakh right ?

Profit 3 lakh
Loss 1.5 lakh
Charges and tax 50,000

Final Proft 1 lakh
