DislikedI agree with what you've said. I would love to know the percentage of traders who do put the time in the learn TA and FA and who don't see forex as a get rich quick scheme that do become successful.
And just to clarify, I don't see any type of trading as "easy" even though it's easier to appreciate trends on a longer term basis. For example, if you do trade long term there inevitably will be times when much of your very nice profit will get wiped out and possibly turn into a loss. How do you deal with that? It isn't easy.
The next time your longer term position is in profit, you'll be tempted to take it. Then you'll start trading on shorter time frames and it becomes very hard again.Ignored
The reason why I said what I said was primarly because the proportion of spread when scalping is relatively much higher than when trading say, the Daily.
