After 4 years of trading the forex, I have realised that it is a scam. I have read it for multiples years in this forum....but I thought it was because this peoples were not successful that were complaining....and that I would manage to succeed. Don't get me wrong, you can win money in forex (I have win money.....) but you can not win in a long time. I have never seen a market that change that much from a month to an other. A strategy that will bring you +30% one month, will bring you -40% the months after. The Forex has no fucking logic. he can be volatile one day and not move a bit the day after despite being a news day. He can also move all day long....and the day after have 2 big moves and stay at the same place for the rest of the day (just look at the graph of the day (Eur/usd) : 2 big moves....and the rest of the day nothing).... You will tell me that you have to find the strategie that work in this fucking environment....and I will agree...but the week after, the same strategy is gonna put you on your knee. You will tell me that there are other parity (GBP/USD, USD/JPY, etc)...but it is the same story and the same erratic way of working. That is why I am closing my account.....but I am not giving up...I will open a stock and futures account in one week. It took me 4 years to understand that there will be a lot more choice everyday in the morning trading stocks...and that way, I will always find a stock that fit my strategy instead of the fucking forex market that fit my strategy some day and do what he want the day after. what I am looking for is volatility.....and if you have the choice between 1000 stocks every morning....it will be easier to find it (reading in the morning which stocks have a big news days) that just the Eur/usd (all the other parity are correled anyway)/ actually trading the forex is like having just one stock and that your only choice is to trade it. some day it is gonna fit your strategy (volatility for me for exemple) and some other day it will not and you will lose your money without being able to trade something else. I now know why the big boys laugh at the forex traders....we are just dreamers.... anyway, needed to vent after realising the scam I was in..... ps : english is not my first language and I did not double check so sorry for the grammatical mistake.
