Brokers take the ultimate risk for the simple fact that they provide us leverage. Many people think that if you have a SL it will be honored, but in most cases when the entire broker goes under no money will be recovered. It wasn't fraud. It was over-leveraging. :) Yet, the brokers take the risk because black swan events are very rare and they will spend years raking in money from people who deposit and never seem to be able to withdraw. A 5k startup can make you 100k easily on commission from b-booking accounts from new account holders.

I think that newbies who don't know what they are doing probably take on a much bigger risk than a broker managed by professional traders and economists.

Newbies have to because they have small accounts. If you want to make any money in Forex you have to take some risks

The truth is black swan events DO happen. And if you are using high leverage then it only takes a minor black swan event to devastate an account

Exactly... an event like Swiss Franc crash was unexpected... high leverage and no Stop Loss was enough to send Fxmarket to chaos...

Many brokers have failed then, can you imagine the common traders/investors?

Yes... if your broker was one that failed... but traders that use low leverage and SL in trades survived.

Luckily, mine exactly was inpact. :)

But, clearences like this one, raise a lot of questions. They are also a good test both for brokers and traders.

It is a matter of having good predictions, and graphic analysis is a graphic way of predicting the future of markets, as well as values, it is ideal to work hand in hand with it. Fundamentally it is based on the study of the figures that form the prices of the shares as the indication of the trend that can follow in the nearest future; that is to say, the prediction of the market itself generates that the same predictions are almost always produced, it does not guarantee that you always succeed. But if it's much better than working with your eyes closed
