I've been studying the markets for about 4 years now and up until the past 6 months, was about breakeven trading index futures. I have been trading forex, both futues and spot, for about 6 months and have been consistently profitable. The daily ranges and the way the currencies trend is unbelievable and I'm wondering if it has always been like this. I can view daily charts up to 10 years ago and see what the ranges are, but I cannot tell how the currencies act within the day. Does anyone have access to a 5min daily chart of the pound and the franc from 10 years ago that they could post? Maybe a narrow range day, and a large range day. I'm just wondering(and praying) this lasts. I don't know why people say to stay away from forex. I think it's the best trading vehicle out there. But to each his own I guess.
