#6 How to find the best risk to reward trading setups? 

 March 16, 2017

By  Rayner

Do you agree with the statement below?

“You must look for trades with a minimum of 1 to 2 risk to reward so that even if you lose more than half the time, you can still be a profitable trader.”


If that’s the case, why stop at 1 to 2 risk to reward?

Why not go for 1 to 1000 risk to reward?

Why not risk 10 pips to make 10,000 pips?

All you need to do is have a stop loss of 10 pips, and have a target profit 10,000 pips away.


You’re a consistently profitable trader.

Well, the truth is this…

The risk to reward ratio is an illusion. It is meaningless without taking into consideration this one thing — and I’ll explain more in this episode of AskRayner.
