A light schedule today….and the only home dog is Cleveland….Public is not heavy enough on the white sox…so looks like nothing else today unless things change dramatically.

“What would you say your risk/reward is on a typical swing trade? Maybe you have a +EV system that has 1% winners and 15% losers?

I’m not hating, love your blog and that you are a no BS guy. “

My response:

The risk reward on any one trade could be 15/1 or more as you suggest(these would be outliers) but overall as I recall the expected return on these trades is somewhere between 1 and 2 %. Of course the individual trades would be all over the board and you would have to do quite a number of trades to get yourself into the expected return area.

So far I have posted about 20 of these trades(so you cannot draw any meaningful conclusions from my trades) but the win loss ration is very high so far…around 80% and the return is easily over 1% with the highest around 4% and largest loss around 2%

My guess is that my return overall will be higher then 2% since my basket of stocks I choose from in making these trades has what I consider a good universe of stocks that are solid with potential gains that will outweigh the market.
