You could learn to be content with what you have. The markets are full of opportunities. It's not necessary to chase every boat. Easier just get on the next one.

With 99% of the retail losing, there is a side of trading that wins from the 99%. That side cannot be gambling.
The reason why 95% are losing is because they are all sore losers.

No, the 99% are mislead by those people who pay foroom.

I see...but I prefer to make good when I am right......I guess one has to find a why which suits his personality.......but the idea has merit for sure....

In my experience I also used a semi martingale method.....often with only + 3-5pips gain I could pocket about 4-5% per day especially in a range day where prices where bouncing in a tight gap.

You prefer because you are seeing too few opportunities. That doesn't mean they are not there.

4-5% a day is more impressive than what foroom claims to be able to do.

It's not necessary to work hard to buy low sell high. It's a very simple math problem.
