On the other hand, if we trade system with a large percentage of profitable trades, we have much less need to diversify. And if our system is carefully designed so as to always "catch" the big trends and rarely cause damage, we obtain the best possible scenario. Of course, diversification is still useful for our strategy with a large percentage of profitable trades, but rather an additional expansion opportunities than neobhodimost.Sistemy with a high percentage profitable transactions require less initial capital to trade.
