DislikedHey Prox, what about this one? http://www.forexfactory.com/showthre...66#post1956866Ignored
Which wondered me too, because if there is a winner strategy then it should be use right? Well, if the average monthly return is slow and market dependent then maybe not so much because a compounded daily or even weekly position can be better than a long term trade.
Besides you cant compound long term trades as you need a big stoploss so the lot must be small and 1 trade probably fills the entire risk margin.
While with shorter term trades you can compound and diversify better with the same risk, and also have a higher cumulative profit afterwards, as the fractal-like structure of the market allows more pips to be gained this way.
The problem is always the edge, long term markets are smoother, but without edge its not much difference there
Its always the edge! So no matter what strategy you look out, if it lacks an edge its pretty much useless ...
