Just one tick

Do you know of any highly successful trader whose strategy only revolve around getting 1 tick profit? Of course this mean he must trade high volume.

Is the idea of being profitable by having a tick profit target just an amateur idea?

Yes you can, but ask yourself a few questions.

Are you an equity member ? Can you afford and execution trader? Are you well capitalized ? Can you afford ORC? Can you afford TradingBlox ?

For most , the final answer is no.

I think most new traders come across that thought in the beginning, either on their own or planted by a vendor. Those that survive figure out the answer is "no". I guess actually so do the ones that blow up

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
