You clearly miss the objective of the 3-6 ratio. Which is to give a trader the confidence, insight, and ability to hit 3 for 3 everyday. It DISCIPLINES a trader to STOP trading when they should. I would expect a novice to practice in Simulator until he or she has mastered the art of knowing WHEN and WHERE to choose their targets. That's the real SKILL, and what's developed over time. Therefore they have lost nothing. Stop and think next time. I think you're trying to hard to prove something. To your trading success.
