  1. Hi guys, i wanted to ask here for successesful traders, how long do you hold your positions? do you hold them for at least an hour or more? Currently i am trading fx but it seems that apparently scalping the sp 500 or aiming for fewer points is better. BUT the problem is i cannot grasp the movements they happen fast and also a 5M chart is not clear enough compare to a 60Min chart or a larger timeframe....

    1) how long do you hold positions
    2) Are you looking at the screen all the time or you just "set and forget"
    3) which is you prefer timeframe?
    4) e mini sp 500 or fx like cable?

    thanks guys
