I believe everyone wants the following three qualities in an ideal day-trading strategy:
- High win-rate
- High average profit factor per trade
- High frequency, i.e. there are many such setups appearing in a day
However, I also believe that you can only realistically only choose two out of the above three qualities with any day-trading strategy.
I have never come across a strategy – and believe me I’ve studied many – that possesses all the above three qualities.
It would literally be the holy grail of strategies.
Strategies with high win-rate and high profitability don’t have frequent setups appearing.
Strategies with high win-rate and frequent setups appearing don’t have high profitability.
Strategies with high profitability and frequent setups appearing don’t have high win-rate.
If you know of a strategy that has all three, I’d love to hear it!
