# Thread: Risk to reward ratio

1. ## Risk to reward ratio

The mistake many forex traders make is that, they believe that it is the perfect traders that are successful. But this is No, It is the smart traders that are successful in the market. And to be successful in the forex market, you do not need to have 100% trading strategy, what you need a good trading ideology and management.

RISK MANAGEMENT: Taking the rules of management into consideration, you will realize that you need a good risk-to-reward ratio to have it working for you. And this is why I always have my reward higher than my risk in the market.

For those traders that do not know the meaning of risk-reward ratio.
Risk-reward-ratio: This is the jointed words that was coined from the risk the trader is taking and the reward the trader is taking the risk for.
For example: I entered a trade on EURUSD with stop loss of 20pips and a take profits of 40pips. It shows that I risked 20pips, and the reward I will get is 40pips for risking that 20pips. Thereby the risk to reward ratio on this is 1:2
As simple as the example above is, traders do not apply it in their trading, and this causes much of their failure in the market.

My logic in this: I make sure that the least of my risk-to-reward ratio is 1:2, but I mostly trade with 1:3 mainly.
If a trader traded in the whole month on EURUSD with 1 standard lot and opened 30 trades for the whole month with risk to reward ratio of 1:3(Where 1 is 20 pips and 3 is 60 pips), and a strategy that wins 50%.

Then it means that the these parameters will be observed; Number of trades = 30 trades, Number of won trades= 15 trades, Number of lost trades= 15trdaes, Lot size=1 lot, Take profit in USD= (\$10x60pips)=\$600, Stop loss in USD =(\$10x20pips)=\$200.
This means that in 15 winning trades, the trader will have \$600x15=\$9000
The resulting profits will be \$9000-\$3000= \$6000 for that month.

This may look very simple, but it is the secret of the traders that has real trading success in the market. And it proved to you that you should rather work on the risk and reward you place with your trading plan , rather than blaming the effectiveness of your trading strategy. HAPPY TRADING!

I made an analysis based on my trading strategy for 6 months with a risk to reward ratio of 1:3, with a capital f \$100, could you believe that I am calculation over \$50,000 in just 6 months? This is the beauty of god management.
Usually, it's calculation if we could gain daily profit and with assumption that we could gain profit without losses at all. Also, the calculation will accumulate the profit without withdrawing any dollars until 6 months. In reality, it's not easy to make it happen especially if we had bigger capital. I ever read that traders ever shared in Excell about calculation of money management but it's hard to realize it in real trading.

Forex trading is simple. We just make it complicated. Rather than focus on how much profit we make or risk and reward ratio. We must focus on basic forex trading. Risk and reward ratio is a gambling mentality. Dealing with odds and chances. If you compute or do this kind of things then chance are you are just gambling in forex trading. Using odds and chances to win.

Traders can come to the profit edge only when they can manage to trade with the justified usage of risk : reward ratio of 1:2 and higher such that gains gathered are larger in comparison to the losses made. With increased risk :reward ratio of 1:2 and higher it is possible to become profitable trader even with 50% winning probability.

Brother, forex is not a simple business, if you think that only buying and selling is the business then you are wrong, there are certain things that a trader need to know, he will have to calculate several things before and after the trading, it is purely based on accounting type thing, I am not an account. but need a lot of calculation, it is complicated not easy.

Brother, that is not damage, that is only called as loses, this is true that earning and loses are part of this business, that's why I pointed out the stop loss importance in my most of the posts here in this forum and with the discussion of friends on similar topics.

11. That's very true that our loss and profit both are the part of our business and I think if we are doing trading with proper risk and reward ratio then its not any kind of gambling you should just try to do trade within a strong trading strategy use along with it you have to maintain a very good discipline also in account
