Do you have two accounts? The response with 15% to 25% is to GLTrader about if a trader can live off of a $10,000 account.
I believe your question was about why I went short on USD/SEK? Unless both accounts are yours.
Or maybe you are responding to both posts.
Yes, I did ask you questions and it would be good for you to look at the chart and try and determine what seemed most probable to happen. The momentum of price obviously slowed as it approached the high on USD/SEK. So for me a long doesn’t look very good.
As to having a profitable strategy or not that comes from a trader back testing. My strategy is profitable for me and fits my trading goals. You must start trying to put together a strategy and test it. Trading is a lot of work. Once you have your strategy and have back tested it profitably you can get these results. I can’t tell you what strategy is best for you. I don’t trade any of my mentors strategies, but I learned from their approaches.
I would recommend the book trading in the zone by Mark Douglas to you as it could help drive home that mental analysis and your ability to think in probabilities is much more important than any strategy ever will be.

I have traded a few strategies profitably over my time in the markets due to my understanding that I can lose 70% of my trades and still make money. If you are looking for a strategy this is probably not the Topic for you. This topic is aimed to build the mindset and way of thinking that traders with many different strategies will benefit from implementing and improve their results.
