Some may say it is the biggest con but making a living means consistent profitability month on month and year by year (say 3 years continuously). This is for the retail rather than the institutional trader
I think we all want the answer to be yes.
Technical indicators are great but for every example that shows it works as a correct trigger, I could come up with another example where it fails no matter what indicator
Due to massive intuitional volumes of activity which bear no relation to physical delivery and are placed on a speculative basis, does this mean that intraday activity is so volatile, do random and so out of tune with economic factors that one is bound to get stopped out more that make a profit.
Views of the forum would be interesting
