OC_Trader...I couldnt agree with you more and I apologize for dragging this on with HolyGrail ...so this is my final response to him/her..


HolyGrail..clearly English is not your first language..or if it is you clearly do not know how to read and understand...so this is my final attempt to explain myself...


1. You arent even a paid student of mine, so why I must show you - a stranger - my Live Account? Is that a requirement of this thread? Have you shown us yours? Why havent you asked others to show theirs?


2. The Demo System reflects the trades made on my LIVE account. Same Trades. Same Trades. Same Results. Same Results.


3. The reason the LIVE account is not shown here is because it CANNOT be linked to myfxbook. JFOREX is used by Dukascopy which is NOT supported by Myfxbook. So that is why I used a DEMO account that CAN be tracked and verified to REFLECT what takes place on my LIVE account.


4. Less Stress because the more you trade the more stressful it can be. In all my 10 years of trading, I have never entered a trade and seen in it in the red by 100- 500 Pips immediately...maybe it happens but you are using something that rarely happens and generalizing. Usually it may be by 10, 20 Pips..but that is why I do not watch my trades as you would see in the picture of the PDF document that I showed in my previous response. Watching trades causes stress. If you are going to tell me that I should...thats another argument for another day/thread.


5. I am not here to promote myself. I mention Subscribers to give you an idea of how confident and accurate I NEED to be in my use of HTFs and Swing Trading. Doing it for yourself is one thing. Doing it with/for others shows a greater level of confidence.


6- 50 usd per month? lol.


In the future and for the sake of this thread, stop making assumptions and attacking people based on limited information your misunderstandings and your personal agenda/vendetta. Thats why many threads deteriorate here and elsewhere on the internet. Even on Facebook.

 Honestly it doesn't make any sense to go back and forth with you. I think all you should do is admit that YOU are a horrible day-trader, and since you ARE a horrible day-trader, simply keep your comments to your family and stop generalizing it. Day-trading hasn't work out for you, and instead of identifying those reasons, you simply blame the entire method which isn't fair.

              The term 'overtrading'is merely that; a term. There is no such thing as over trading such as their is no such thing as over bought or under sold. Those terms have been put out there based on bias and a justification to enter a position. Many people speak about 'long term', yet we see that the market can take U-TURNS at a drop of time, thus wiping out profits in 1 - 2 days. Higher tf, is more profitable in pips, but it also leads to higher draw-downs. So my question to you is why not focus on accurate entries, instead of only focusing on just profit.
              How many systems have we seen here on myfxbook, that have been both long and short term and fail sometime in the further? The reality is ALL! The best systems are the systems which can profit, and based on the trade history you can see consistency in the sl. Since you believe in overtrading, well UNDERTRADING also exsist. Undertrading exsist when swing trades don't hedge positions 'both green and red'and allow them to end up turning to deeper red, or green positions which turn into BE or red!



Hi HolyGrailPTY,
I see no one wins in this argument. If you think that working on LTF is better for you and it suits you, it is OK. I think any trading system is evaluated by its profitability and longevity. If LTF trading is worth focusing on show your ONE YEAR or more results to public...
I am sure WE ALL COME TO FOREX (BUSINESS) TO MAKE PROFIT OR MONEY, dont we, NOT JUST TO TRADE. If your goal is just to make accurate entries (as you said) and to trade just go on doing so. Good luck!

  Accurate entries is how I decide to trade, as it allows me to earn money. Although I thank you for your response, the reality is you haven't provided any information which is deemed useful towards the argument at hand. As a scalper, I have a problem when people, who have failed in doing so mention that scalping is not profitable in the long run or it doesn't earn money. It is unfair to cast such a negative outlook on something because YOU have failed at it. That in turn, will cause people to shy away from scalping and head towards swing trading, which is a totally different monster. The reality is less then half a % of the accounts here make it past 1 year, and if they do it is because the manager has the ability to stick to his or her system ALL of the times.

Hi all,
I'd like you guys to comment about the best time frame, in your opinion, to trade profitable over the long run?😱


Every time frame has it's pluses... With the longer time frames you rely on big profit from one positionq but in the short time frames you are searching for a minimal profits out of a big number of deals... A matter of a strategy.

My opinion in summary...










Its a matter of which style gives you better results despite its disadvantages.


By results I mean at least equal to your 9-5 salary each month or some other monetary benchmark.


Success must be in dollar terms not just % (return, drawdown etc). After all, money is what you can take to the bank, supermarket, vacations etc--not fancy percentages.

To add to the over-generalized PDF given above, Long term trading is based more upon 'traders bias' and/or 'fundamentals' compared to short term trading, which generally, is based on 'Price action' and 'countering herd trading'. What is seen on the higher tf's simply was created by the price action on the lower tf.

After looking at https://www.myfxbook.com/members/DRFXTRADING/day-trading/1180103 Of your last 35 trades, you manage to lose 33. In which at one point you lost more then 20 in a row! I think your issue was, based on your stats, your system and nothing more. I have never seen anyone daytrading, and lose so many positions in a row.

Higher Time Frames make you understand the larger picture of what is happening on the LTFs.


Take the recent spike in the CHF JPY on Thursday.



It may have seemed like a simple trend change with breaks of Downtrend Lines taking place on the 30 Minute Chart....









....but examining the Daily Chart, you can see a Large Consolidation being formed ..










...which is based on certain patterns of candles that generally lead to these Consolidations...









This means that the rally was always gonna to take place to form Support and most persons who saw this would have stopped selling in anticipation of this rally...

 Yeah and trading on the higher tf now has people sitting on negative 400 pips on EU :) What it took EU 1 month to gain to the sell side, it lost it all in 3 hours.
