The problem here is the people who say 'It can't happen' are only saying that because 'they have never been able to do it'. The reality is people base their opinions on personal experiences and not on actual proof. First of all look at the examples people are using, referring to 'long term'. The reality is 'long-tern' is a very unspecific term used to describe time. Most of the people here want to make money long term, but the reality is no one can lose, nor win in the long term. You will eventually hit streaks which allows you to win/lose. @FXtrader2010
We look at your account ans clearly we see your pessimistic view on the market is because your live account has almost 3 times as high of a draw-down then your actual overall gain. Honestly, you should be the last person speaking about what can or can not be done. Many factors come into why an account may blow, but that silly explanation of ' cyclical global macro changing the market price discovery dynamics' is beyond pointless. No matter WHAT is going on in the world, the market trades within certain parameters called 'price action'. If a person traded price action, and only price action then that is how he/she would be able to consistently earn profits week in and week out. Price action is the only constant in this market and everything else is randomness which in no way share or form can lead to accuracy while entering a position.
At the end of the day it is very easy to say that 'xyz is not possible or improbable' but if a person can do it in the short term, it can also be done in the long term.
