Ask him maybe then he buys/sell dips with marty on important lines. The question should be rather how long can you keep it up

you cull the trade

{quote} you cull the trade
hm, so you close the trade when it goes maybe 10-20 pips against, and if it goes in the right direction you buy/sell with high frequency but close the trades immediatly to say it simply. overall, few trades can maybe go on... other options wouldn't be reasonable in the long run

Nice trading life... RickM!

I worked outside my home country for years... then went back to my homeland and work once again (supporting Obama Care Systems ─ remotely) but I resigned after 3 weeks due to heavy traffic as I was driving an average of 4.5 hours each working day wherein in normal traffic or without nuances it could take less than 45 minutes. ─That was 4 years ago when I started trading Forex full time... But not traveling outside the country, just around the country only... as a local tourist most of the time
; )─ ..forgot I did went to HK & Singapore in-between (it seems local to me as I saw my fellow countrymen a lot there too) ; )─ lol

it takes on average 5-10 years to be consistenly profitable in this racket

success and progress comes in stages..

no need to bitch and moan ...leave that for the strippers in ATL

You have to pay the ferking price...

Most dont have the mental and emotional fortidue and persearvance to see this thru

The forex grave yard is full of broken down traders who gave up too soon and low pain threshold..

If you are not willing to pay with time and money... please never touch trading

Forget you ever knew anything about trading...and leave your peaceful life...

For those who are willing to punch thru the pain... I assure you... Glory awaits you but know ...you will get to the other side...a broken man ..glorious non the less

Totally with it. Plus you could fit the greed rather then eliminante it. Maybe that will happen after those 5-10 years

{quote} You spent three whole years looking for a successful strategy? If, before you spent 3 years looking for a successful strategy, someone had told you that you needed to spend eight to ten years learning about all things related to the forex before you'd be qualified to begin your search, would you have still tried? Is it possible, even likely, that you're not qualified to evaluate any strategies, because you dont have the skills to evaluate them? Isn't it true that you spent three years proving that you dont know enough to make any strategy...
Based on the last 3 pages of this thread, this might be a good spot to add a bit to my first post.

First, most retail forex traders fail because they lack the competencies required to successfully trade, just like they lack the competencies to be a successful brain surgeon, nuclear engineer, and NBA basketball player. Most people who read this post lack success at nearly everything they've tried in life, but most also have found success at something in life that does not require any great insight or unique set of skills, largely because they lack insight and uniqueness. Successful forex trading requires both. And the problem most unsuccessful traders have is, they haven't sought insight nor acquired skills. They believe it is possible to turn trading into a kind of video game.

Second, there are plenty of successful retail forex traders. I know dozens of them who participate in a trading group in which I belong. Everyone in the group possesses insight and skills. You arent invited to join the group if you lack both. Fyi -- no one in the group believes the market is random, even though the market sometimes plays random.

Finally, when you talk about trading performance, consider win rates and percentage returns to be minor metrics. The primary metric is strategic execution, which measures both your insight and skills. If you dont understand that, figure it out. If you cant figure it out, you are better suited to be a salesperson or barista. Good luck.
