@push5280- just following up on your stop loss considerations in connection with your W/L calculation. I assume you aren't losing 7% of your equity on any given trade, but 7% against the size of your position. That being said, how does the calculation factor this variable into the equation? Or are you always entering your stops at a set % such as 7%, regardless of where your thesis behind the trade becomes incorrect? I adjust my position size depending on the trade, where i am wrong, and to losing no more than .5%-1.5% of total equity on any given trade setup.

Hi cjbhogal, I am new to the community here & in a similar boat in respect to not having strategie(s) in place at the moment. Tbh I have mostly relied on discretionary trading ideas up to this point in my young trading career. The fact that I am now here sums up how that has fared. Not that this hasn't made me money, but I find it an unsustainable way to generate profits. I'd prefer to take all the belief and emotion out of the equation.

Anyhow, my hope is to learn from everyone here and build up a toolbox of creative and workable mechanical trading ideas, run them through their paces with a low posiiton size, and hopefully build up some confidence that I am headed in the right direction.

Good luck!
