Depends on how you look at it, Elks. You would have found another challenge or pastime or occupation for yourself. Another hard nut to crack. People tend to attract the same kinds of challenges to their lives, but you never know in advance, in what form will they appear.
I agree about that. What fun? I had no gray hair just 2 years ago. Now, daily gets up at London open took it's toll. It's good I am not getting up at 2:30 a.m. as I have been doing for almost 2 years every day.

I've called forex many things, but fun is not one of them. More like a decade of pain and suffering.
Alright chaps, everyone has a cross to bear ... and other person's crosses always seem smaller and lighter .... we can't always make it easier but at least we can try and make it bearable. Keep those heads high, keep those upper lips stiff, and have a nice weekend. 😉
I personally trade everything including break outs. The key is to know that break out have less probability than fading break out and profit must be taken quickly with stop moved quickly too for the rest of position. I would say that Forex and oil differes in this regard. Forex in imho, is artificial constract and not a real thing. It is not even a shadow of real thing. Oil on the other hand is the very real thing and the foundation of everything. It tends to move much stronger and I would not do what i used to do with currencies on oil.

Yes, I agree and know time is precious. So I made up my mind that I used to employ traders for manual trading in the past. It is costly but worth to save my time.
Right now, I fired all traders and use EA. Employed FRM to control risk and MM. Still costly but I can spend time on research, reading, outdoor activities, seminar, video game, travelling overseas and looking for new retail business .
So don't be an old style and traditional trader now !!
