You're right, for super short term trading & low timeframes, algo can always act faster than humans. It'll only get worse in the future.

For retail traders, their best chance to win is to trade on higher timeframes, because the impact of algo orders is limited and the price action there was agreed by many more buyers and sellers, which makes your trading signals more accurate.

The future of discretionary trading hasnt changed that much - sure it is today more difficult due to markets are getting less predictable, but compensated with much more sophistcated trading tools are available today.

Still the main problem of discretionary trading is the waiting time, profitable traders talk constantly about how boring its is to daytrade.

One would seek to solve the problem of getting alerted on trading setups, and how to let the trade play out without beeing there 6 hours. Without tools which can alert you on promising trading setups, and which can monitor the open position for you - better to go the full automated way, or simply do something else than trading.

The obersvant trader would conclude this involes a need to implement your trading idea in a method which can alert you.
