But, forex is far from gambling. A smart, savvy, and disciplined forex investor is a far cry from a riverboat gambler. Moving forward with careful analysis and prudence can net you a profit just as easily as stock trading or commodities or bonds can - and in some ways, forex trading is actually easier.
I do not like day trading with 5-minute charts, personally, although it is possible to do. On a 5-minute, compared to a 1-minute chart, you find fewer trades each day. The 5-minute chart trades will last longer (typically) and the longer trades last the more likely volatility will die as the trades progresses, especially in trading during the US session. This means targets are less likely to be hit as the day progresses because you move out of the ideal day trading time after only about 40 to 60 bars depending on when you start trading. You have also lost a lot of information on a 5-minute chart. A 5-minute engulfing bar CANNOT be assumed to be consolidation breakout on the 1-minute chart. No matter what time frame you trade, the strategies don't change. Use the entry technique because there is a proper setup for it. DOn't take a trade because you believe it represents another style of entry on another timeframe (that just gets too complex).
Charts are categorized according to the way price action is depicted as well as the time frame of the period being examined. Imagine that we have a 4-hourly candlestick chart of the EURUSD pair. This means that each candlestick on the graph presents the price data of a four-hour long period in a compact form. What happens inside that time period is irrelevant. If we had chosen an hourly chart, each candlestick on the chart above would be replaced by four different candlesticks.
Some EAs on the market - especially the ones that scalp - have a risk-reward ratio of 15:1 and higher, which indicates that it uses a very risky strategy. A high risk-reward ratio does not necessarily mean that the EA does not make money. An Expert Advisor with a 95% success rate will still be profitable with a 15:1 risk-reward ratio, but if that rate drops to 93%, the EA will lose.
