Boy I just can't help myself to comment on this issue.
My self I tried to predict the market movement with candle pattern and way to many fancy indicators and EA's.
Only till I started not caring about witch way the market moves just playing with it I started making a little money.
If that makes any sense.
I fully agree with you. Its laughtable when some guru tryes to make prediction like he has magic crystal ball.
Also my approuch is similllar to yours. I do not care where it moves. There is always an opportunity if you dont try to be a sidecick and predict something.
Regarding VSA I was just explaining why news dont give you the edge and what drives the market. Also I know a guy able to detect smart money activity and then go with it.
