What type of trading is the best?

  1. For us retail traders (forgive me if you work for a big firm) what are your thoughts on the ideal route to go down? I think anything outside of longer time frame automated and discretionary - and possibly intraday discretionary (much more time consuming) - are the only plausible routes, the rest being dead end addiction streets.
  2. I think larger bars are better to focus on.
  3. Think of your ideal trade in terms of how long it would last, how frequently you'd like to trade, etc. and then determine how you would go about designing something to make that happen, if it's possible. There are very few "one size fits all" approaches to the markets. Your main objective is to have a positive expectancy approach, but outside of that, how you accomplish that objective is going to reflect your subjective preferences.
