Top 100 Forex Traders Statistics

Review the day's successful and unsuccessful forex trading strategies

The following statistics are calculated from the forex trading activities over the past 24 hours of two groups of OANDA traders: the top 100 "most profitable" and (optionally) the top 100 "least profitable" traders.

How are these forex traders selected?

These forex traders are not selected exclusively on their overall amount of realized Profit and Loss, since that would skew the results toward hedge fund and big institutional accounts. Instead, the currency traders are sampled from a wide range of account balances, from the micro, to the institutional.

What’s shown in these charts?

By default, statistics are shown only for the 100 most profitable forex traders. Check "Show Least Profitable Traders" to show statistics for the non-profitable traders, which are shown in a lighter colour.

The following statistics are shown for each of our most traded currency pairs for the past 24 hours. They are calculated from the total number of trades placed by each group of traders.

  • The direction (percentage of trades long vs. short)
  • The profitability (percentage of profitable vs. non-profitable trades)
  • Average duration for all the profitable and non-profitable trades placed by each group.
  • Average Profit/Loss per unit in pips.

What can I find out from these charts?

While this chart cannot predict future trends, it’s an interesting snapshot on the last 24 hours.

When you compare the two types of forex traders, look for trends. Which group is holding their trades longer? Are they taking a particular direction? Are traders profiting more from some pairs?
