Human beings exist day-to-day in a world preoccupied by statistical measures, ranging from numerous personal health metrics (blood pressure, PSA counts, temperature, oxygen levels, heart rate, etc.) to standard weights & measures (gallons, pounds, meters, temperature, etc.) to determinants of economic well-being (GDP, unemployment rates, inflation rates, interest rates, balance-of-payments, etc.) to statistical definitions of every area of our lives. Modern society could not exist without measuring nearly every conceivable thing.
Yet, many traders make no attempt to convert their Trading Performance into meaningful metrics. This is unfortunate because meaningful metrics are not simply interesting statistics – rather they can serve important functions:
Dictate and guide the development of trading strategy
Monitor trading outcomes against intended benchmarks

How much patience should a trader have with a losing trade?
The question on losing trades, all traders must answer for themselves, and there really is no right answer. The answer for any given trader must depend upon his or her trading approach, markets traded, risk tolerance and other factors.
For me, the answer to this question is quite simple and multi-layered.
My initial risk per trade seldom exceeds 70 basis points and is limited to 100 basis
I aggressively advance protective stops within days (sometimes hours) after entering a trade.
My goal is to bring a trade to as close to breakeven as possible, as quickly as possible!
