Trading forex over 20 years is dumb, currency pairs have no inherent buoyancy unlike stock indices.

But trading forex is profitable. If you do it right.

Trends reversing is not a problem when you trade the proper instruments and have a long/short strategy with a good entry and exit signal. It is better to view trend-following as an asset class. Here is an article about trend-following in forex from a well-known expert and quant. The idea is to limit losses during choppy markets but then make it big during trend markets. Trend-following cannot generate constant profits.

I did a lot of backtests on trend following on fx ,results were poor.

Not constant, no, - but consistent, and with the regular opportunity for out-performance.

Off topic because I would consider myself as a trend follower, but I would not have taken any trades from your posted chart.
So this whole conversation is slanted with your preconceptions.
