I guess I do not have a positive expectancy with my trading since I am a net loser. I have jumped around different platforms, tried various techniques (Elliott wave, Fibonacci, tick charts, etc.) and have never had a positive expectancy. I have never traded more than 1 contract either. To be honest, I feel like I was a better trader when I first started.

So to be specific, did you ever test Ichi or 5% gaps to see if they worked historically? Or, did you just accept they worked, based on something you saw or read somewhere?

Don't feel bad, whatever your answer. I bet 10% of traders answer yes to questions 1, but 90% answer yes to question 2.
