I don't know why I keep seeing this !!
If you lose 20% of your capital, you need a 25% increase to get back to where you started.
20% of 10K = 25% of 8K = 2 grand.
The amount you lose is them same as the amount you have to get back.
Regardless of how you misuse percentages!!
Somehow the implication is that - because the percentage is higher,
it is harder to get back to breakeven.
How hard can it be?
