There is a holy grail. It's called super disciplined money management. As it is "Holy", it must be practiced religiously or it doesn't work.

And like any religion, it's hard to be a Saint.

your right there man! unless it's used on a crap system. in which case it's an unholy grail.
I'd forgotten this thread. the holy grail is real though. you will find it behind your eyes and between your ears. we all have it. few use it.

Aw C'mon... a good debate is the fuel of better ideas. At any rate, I'd be interested in what is making your account happy. Mine is satisfied but one can never be too happy.

Well, my account is very happy today. Perhaps it's those laughing emoticons you included in your post. If that's the "secret", it worked beautifully.

You're my hero now. I hope this one works as well for you:

Yes.
I believe a so-called...Holy Grail trading method exists for people...but it's subjective for different people.

The Holy Grail that traders searched for (at least I did) was a system that gave you an entry that had no slippage and moved in the correct direction within 60 seconds. A stop that never got hit and withstood spurious spikes. A target that took in every point of the current 'trend' and was a reversal signal when hit.
The reality looks like stake size, contract length and how big a stop you can have.

Be long when price is in an uptrend, be short when its in a downtrend.

Other stuff you can afford to get wrong but not this.

New traders have a wrong perception about Holy Grail (including me in past). They think Holy grail is some strategy which will never fail, i.e they will never have a loss. Which is impossible. But even after getting loss, if your account grows in long term with the blessing of R/R ratio, then it can be called as Holy Grail.
