Forex is not like gambling. I have taken trading as a business and a business isn't a betting it is about speculation. Different traders intentionally or unwittingly consider trading to be betting. Thusly they wind up losing their cash. We should see it as a business.

You are right. Many people come to trading with the mindset of a gambler and then claim forex isn't profitable because they lost. But speculation is something that requires skill and a kind of mental strength, it is a lot more nuanced than gambling.

Of corse! Forex trading involves identification of patterns and trends and is based on logic whereas gambling is just luck.

Yes trading is not gambling. But unfortunately many traders treat it like gambling. They are not willing to develop skills. They trade mostly blindly. As a result they lose money all the time.

Gambling is for short time success. You need skill and strategy for long time success.

Yes, forex is business and not gambling, but depending on yours as an account holder, if want to work as a gambling trader you can bet in the forex market based on luck only, and forex trading is not based on luck, it required experience, knowledge patience, forex trading is high-risk business but not as gambling.

Forex trading is not gambling, despite the common misconception some people have. Yes there is money involved, and tehre are losses from time to time. But traders know the importance of taking things seriously, try to understand the market and see what is happening in terms of trends, evaluate risks, and have a plan. It also relies a great deal on building your knowledge and while a little luck might be there, in truth it is all about a trader's experience, great care, knowhow and patience too.

Forex trading depends on the investment mindset. The stronger the mindset, the better the profit can be made by analysis.

Skills and knowledge are a must in trading. How to manage discipline without trading skills.

Proper knowledge and skills are required. Moreover, it is not possible to make a profit in trading.

Forex is not gambling. It mostly depends on patterns and techniques and you can not succeed in it without knowledge and skills.

Yes, different
but I would say that there is something similar to poker game, where you need to have skills and knowledge in order to calculate possible combinations.
The market offers a much more extensive set of combinations, if I can write so. And so planning your trade and using proven 'combinations' is some way to streamline the trading.

In a nutshell, trading forex is putting the odds(if u will) in your favor same as being able to count cards at the card table, and if you get caught (and you will sooner or later) you will be escorted out and your picture will be on the board in many Casinos. The line is not thin between Forex and Gambling. Ask yourself, does the Casino ever allow you to put the odds in your favor to win or Beat the House? I don't think so!!! 'Drop the Mike'

Trading definetely shouldn't be betting. Successful trading cannot be betting, it is just impossible to guess right all the time to make consistent profits.
