What's all this plus and minus the spread  if the spread wasn't included it wouldn't be 10 ticks profit, would it. 
OK
10 ticks profit
10 ticks stop loss
spread 2 ticks.
To get to your stop, you need an 8 tick move
To get to your target you need a 12 tick move
Your win rate on a random entry system would be 40%
You'd lose the spread.
