Trading is about forecast future.


Trading is not about forecasting. It is about waiting for a good move and enter it, hoping it will continue. MM is doing the rest. It is impossible to forecast price moves, they can go up, down or ranging at anytime, and just because a trend appears, it can reverse the opposite because most of the traders entered at this point.
If price goes up, everyone buys so price goes down, etc. No way to predict anything. It is like two people crossing each other without knowing if they cross by the right or by the left.
Just knowing how strong is the move is a way to be right with more than 50% probalility. This is not foecast at all, this is watching what just happened.


Hoping on the wave is forecasting because you forecast that the pair continues move in the direction it is moving.
Based on what is happening now - moving down or up you forecast it will stays so.

Let say brexit happened (as this is the large event fresh in everyones memory), everyone knows there is a huge downward pressure even if it's within one day, same goes for events like a central banker speaking of doing something. Rate adjustments, policy adjustments, important macro numbers like the NFP and so on.

This will make you sick and your eyes will be under severe pain.You will need a doctor because now you are addicted to intraday trading.

Well have to agree and it is very important thing to care of. Because trading is not very healthy pastime. We hurt our back spine we get fatter and especially monitors and its eradiation strikes our eyes. But anyway it is the part of the craft so you can only think of a strategy that allows you to save internal resources

Well ,
Life is gamble .To be born as human is gamble already because You would not know if your life would be better than your dog life or your life can be suck .
Marry your wife is gamble too , you dont know if she would be good wife or she will drive you crazy .
You go to sleep at night is gamble because you dont know you can get up the next morning or you can sleep for good .
Everytime you drive your car on street is gamble ,eating is gamble , drinking is gamble ......
So what the heck wrong with gamble ????
15 minutes or 1 month , 1 year the risk is the same if you dont know what you are doing and dont have money management .
Good luck .

Life is gamble when you have no strategy and no plan for it. When you let things take their course by itself and you do not realize that you have to do something with it while it is only your duty. Before that you need to understand exactly what you want. With the understanding that you have problems and you not satisfied you have to take care of it. Another way it is not surprising that your life is a gamble

This is the best comment I have ever read, Very good, Life is chance, we are risking all the time without knowing if it will be ok or not, But we have to go on with out¡r lifes, There is nothing wrong in Gambling or risking. All or nothing. To live life at is fullest, I think people trying to safe trade are control freaks. There is no fun without a bit of risk in life.
