The larger the risk, the shortest amount of time. Kelly criterion - Wikipedia

The larger the risk, the more likely the risk of ruin. Use the Kelly and it's likely you will wipe the account. Could you stand a 80% draw down?

You don't want "the shortest amount of time."

80 % of the time the market ranges , 80 % of trends become choppy ,and 80 % of  trading is mindsets and psychology., iNdicators., systems , methods ARE THE LEAST IMPORTANT AND MAKE UP < 20 %.

95 % + traders lose , due to psychology , so with these odds , you only want to risk 0.2 % of your account on every trade, then martingale after a series of losses.Expect 7 to 10 trades losing in a row , in real account.The brokers give you fills on demo , but not on real.Not 2 %  but 0.2 %.

In real trading , there is less than 20 % chance of making money , with just  one entry.

Ralph Vince had an article of the difference between Kelly Criterion and Optimal f in this journal.
