Intraday Trading is gambling

I believe that everyone who trades using technical analysis is in someway gambling.
There is no difference if you use higher timeframes or smaller ones. Technical indicators will give same answer, always.
The problem with daytrade is more about risk management. If you trade monthly for a 5% return and 60% year, you must do the same in daytrading.
Don't think you can do 100x more profit using a 15 min TF vs a daily TF.
Everything has risks. There is no gain without risk.

Trade safely... Remember, a high Drawdown means a high risk!

I’ve been trying to move forward to intraday but couldn’t find the right moment to begin with it. I’ve heard a lot about it.

There is no place for gambling. Try not to do that.

Trading is all about analysis. Gambling isn’t the right way.

if you do cross a street, the probability to get run over is much lower using a zebra stripe or a traffic light, still there is a chance it may happen, hende it's a gamble, you just having a really high probability of success, and this is what is it all about.

this whole gambling/non-gambling thing is just a fight about the definition, everything in life is a gamble!

trading (especially day trading) is about probability. just because one trade on a larger timeframe doesn't make it less of a gamble, it's just slower in terms of time used and capital at risk.

most daytraders fail because they use the common knowledge on risking 1ish percent on a trade, which is massively oversized on a range play or something similar.
as a losing streak can lead to some major losses. in a very short time.

exposure and risk are not the same things!
putting 10 trades on with 1% risk creates a 10% exposure, a return of less than 10% makes one a bad trader, however, the majority of daytraders claim 'I risk only 1% per trade'
ending the day with a 1% profit and feel good about themselves, not realizing that this 1% gain had a 'cost' of a 10% exposure.

Couldn't agree more on this Botte.

To be honest, I disagree when trading is compared to gambling. I think these are completely different things.

I agree. Gambling fixes the odds and there isn't much you can do to affect the probability. With trading the whole point is you are trying to affect the probability.

If you can't spot the liquidity then you are the liquidity.

I agree. Gambling usually refer to novices who don't know how to read the charts, don't know what the charts are saying, and don't have the skillset to pick their S/L, TP or understand lot size. When you respond to the data you see, you are not gambling.

Your Past doesn't have to be your Future.
