I have been reading, back testing and learning every chance I get. I am curious to know what sort of win/loss ratio are people comfortable with or what they are shooting for?
It appears to be a very individual thing, personally I am more conservative but what is conservative ratio?
Hope I am making sense, if I am back testing and getting say a 60% Win 40% Loss ratio will I struggle to deal mentally with the losses on a day to day basis?
Obviously the results from back testing are not 100% reflective of real trading results, but I curious of whats realistic when trading in real life. The last thing I want it to make the move to real trading with unrealistic goals.
What do people find acceptable?
