The system lost the majority of the time and around 70% of trades lost money but the ones that made money, made huge profits. This allowed the traders to pile up triple digit long term profits and still lose the majority of their trades.
The method was easy to learn but following it was hard, as many of the traders have since said in interviews and books on the experiment. However, they knew they had to hold their discipline and cut losing trades quickly and run their profits to win and they did with spectacular success.
