Multi-selection would be better
Because customer may look/compare more than one option
Not only one
I have selected "DD"

Good Luck

Thanks for your vote and I think you are absolutely right.

I also thought about that point and didn’t choose multi-selection because I only want to know the most influencing ratio.

I think I will do another poll with multi-selection, so we can ascertain the combination of the most influencing one too.

Recovery Factor is my choice.

By definition recovery factor is the ratio between the absolute profit  to the maximum DD.

Most of people here will choose DD as if they say we want safe trading, but how trading can be safe without making profits. that is why I can see that the relation between both profits & DD is much more important.

Thank you too for your voting.

That is an interesting point of view and maybe some will now reconsider their decision.

I'm not quite sure how mql calculates this ratio because according to my knowledge the recovery factor can be define as "the amount of equal payments to be received for n years such that the total present value of all these equal payments is equivalent to a payment of one dollar at present, if interest rate is i".

Do you know the formula of the calculation from mql?

Despite all of that you are right, because without making enough profits you can’t earn money.

If you hover your mouse over the profit factor on a signal you get MQL's definition of PF:

`The profit factor shows how many times the gross profit exceeds the gross loss.`
