Risk Reward Tool is defunct

#1 Postby Seraphace3 » Mon Apr 17, 2023 1:34 pm

Someone else made a post about this 2 years ago and it's still not fixed.

The risk reward theory of capital management is ALWAYS expressed as a multiple of your risk, by any teacher I've ever come across. I shouldn't have to do fractional math to determine that when it says .25, I have a 4:1 ratio. If I'm looking for an 8:1 trade, I now have to bust out a calculator to divide 1 by 8 to find what I should make my risk reward tool drawn to? You guys just released a new version of the program, I don't understand how something like this isn't at least an option, to invert the calculation.

Do you do patches or minor updates, or do people have to always wait for the full development cycle to get things like this fixed?

We've reversed the Risk/Reward tool in the last build of the program (, now it works the same way as in TradingView, for example.

Plese check the build of your FT5 program via Help -> About program menu at the top of Forex Tester.

Just in case, you can always download the latest version of the program via this link:
