# How to calculate probability of losing x trades in a row in 50 days.

#### VBA KILLER

##### New Member
Hi all, so im trying to make a excel spreadsheet to calculate the highest percentage of losses in a row.

somewhat like this

The only thing is that I want to have loss percentage and i want to be able to start at 1 percent rather than 5

### Excel Facts

Is there a shortcut key for strikethrough?
Ctrl+S is used for Save. Ctrl+5 is used for Strikethrough. Why Ctrl+5? When you use hashmarks to count |||| is 4, strike through to mean 5.

Try =1-POWER(\$A3,B\$2)

Eg 40% win *40% = 16% chance win so 84% chance loss.

I see the maths there is quite different though, hard to think why that would be.
