Win rate

The win rate is described as:

The ratio of the number of winning trades to the total number of trades

However, if I run a back test setting the starting cash to 15k I get a win rate that is different than if I set the starting cash to 5K even though the same exact  trades are executed (where the lower starting cash had a lower win rate)?

Update Backtest








Without the details of your trades or the difference of the win rates, it is kind of hard to tell exactly what is going on. However, please note that the sum of all trading costs (fees and slippage) are not proportional to starting cash.
