No.

Analyzing multiple pairs via automated analysis provides greater opportunity for trades, and reduces the level of manual work required by the trader.

No. It simply means the person is smart enough to have figured out a system that works for multiple currency pairs and is profitable for them.

Also....

Simply because I happen to be analyzing 30 pairs doesn't mean I am going to be opening 30 positions. I am simply looking for entry points. I only open a few trades at once, but I continually analyze the market data looking for new entry points, so when one of the previous trades closes out, I can open a new one if possible.

Multiple pair analysis with maximum position limits and a solid money management system will provide a good profit if someone is doing it properly.

Yeah. I did. That was my demo contest experience:) Do you know that some pairs correlate each other. So anyone can twice the profit or loss. My experience was extremely good. Maybe I am lucky:)

I never trade with more than three or four currency pairs at any given time. Yes, the total sum is probably around a dozen pairs or so, but I never trade them at the same time, I'm that good at multitasking.

it is not trading 15 pairs that matters, what matters is if all your positions are winning trades. the max I've always opened is 12 position and most times all the 12 positions are winning positions, and they are always these pairs, GBP/JPY, AUD/JPY, CAD/JPY, AUD/JPY, NZD/JPY EUR/GBP, EUR/AUD, EUR/CAD, EUR /NZD, AUD/CHF, CAD/CHF, GBP/CHF, AND NZD/CHF, they are always my favorite pairs, just like past Friday, yesterday Monday and today Tuesday, the same pairs, the same daily time frame, the same directions all winning. Short trades, audjpy, cadjpy, gbpjpy, nzdjpy, audchf, cadchf, gbpchf, nzdchf, Long trades euraud, eurcad, eurgbp, eurnzd. pls am saying I know too much, but these pairs they are always in these formation, either long or short.

How are you able to pay attention to all of them at the same time without missing something?

Hei im trading with 15 pairs same time. Its not martinggale or any regular grid. With martingale or geometric grid you need to have endless amount on your account. I most of time use same same size of transaction.

Thats not right. As you can see above its grid + martingale. After initial deposit only withdrawals no endless amount of money.

I trade 24 different currencies, so all but the exotic ones. I also trade silver and gold, and I am profitable. I trade the daily, weekly and monthly charts. No scalping, grid og martingale. I trade using candlesticks combined with bollinger bands as primary system and DBB as secondary. You can take a look at my account if you like :) : https://www.myfxbook.com/members/Kevinbonnelykke/bonne-invest-pro/1443035/BMPV2pYeqMon4QMkih4x

Kind regards

Speaking of the exotic instruments, does anyone trade Palladium or Platinum here? I am considering giving them a try.

Hello Vontogro.
First of all you have to make definition of grid. If for you grid is any two or more transaction, you are right, thats grid. For me grid is two or more transaction but it has to be regular from beginnig. From beginig you will know where you will set next position.For exampel every 50 pips. I do not set it regular. Second Martingale grid is when also regular you will make size of your transaction bigger and bigger but not by multiply but by addition. For expampel.
1.1 Lot
2.2 lots
3.3.lots
4.4.lots
 In martingale grid every positon has to be bigger than one before. I don have it. I make position bigger when my DD going down uo to 50%. Now my next positions will be 1.5 Lot.

What do you mean by last sentence? :)

I position trade the daily and weekly timeframes, and there can be a big delay between trades, so I use an EA that monitors all symbols available with my broker and trades when an opportunity comes up. So, I tend to trade across many, many pairs.

@koval
That's easy my friend.
Grid = adding multiple position of the same size to aggregated position
Martingale = adding trades with bigger size based on multiplier. Or more broad definition when equity decreases trade size increase
