I don't know where this does belong to, because this is a bit strategical and a bit trading system issue, but..

I came into a conclusion that in/out 10h SMA, for example, does not work at all with a market making broker. In/out trading with a SMA requires a lot of entries, and exits with small gains, and if one is losing, say, 2 pips each trial it really does not pay off. So, 1 pip loss for each entry and one pip loss for each exit. Profits are going to be eroded away whilst the market is ranging. Really, SMA in trading begins to pay off in 4h/1D time frame.

Any opinons on this? Has anybody succeeded consistently in trading with a MM in lower (1h or less) time frames.

I am also using D1 & H4 time frames but comfortable with EMA; EMA 20.
