    If you are one of the relative few who can maintain success scalping, the win rate may increase slightly but, for the majority, I think the win rate is likely to fall off as you engage the market more but get better at managing risk (large position size on the winners, which are ran for greater distance, and smaller position sizes on losses that are cut even shorter).

    My 2 cents!

    Good morning,

    About the win rate question.. A guess not the win rate what matters. The lose rate what is more important.

    Hopefully the trader gets better and better in managing positions as time goes by.

    (I’m trying hard to be consistent. Not as easy as it seems 🙂

    All the best for you!

    I would say as long as your in profit at the end of your financial year and are still sane,disciplined and feel that you are a more knowledgeable trader and still have the hunger to learn your potentially a winner.

    Form a successful backdrop and absorb the defeats against it

    The win rate is largely irrelevant however it is only irrelevant to the Veteran trader and not to the Novice Trader.

    That being said, in my opinion the win rate would go down as the Trader becomes more comfortable with having losing trades and tends to hold on to them longer as they understand maintaining a high win rate can be difficult. So where a new trader would risk 1R to make 0.5 R (RR being inverse) a more advance trader is more likely to risk 1R to make >1R and therefore the win rate will come down. They are directly inversely correlated.
