The short answer is yes, price action works.
Risk management, price action and years of learning from the many losses ive endured have been the key to my current trading strategy.
In my opinion, success wont come from reading a forum thread or paying for information. There is enough free information available for a solid trading foundation. If you combine the knowledge you accumulate with the many lessons the market will deliver via losses, you will be on your way
I honestly believe you can fail your way to being a profitable trader. Figure out what doesnt work by making mistakes and paying your dues to the market. The more you begin to realize what doesnt work, the closer you get to what does work.
It takes years of hard work, but if your presistent, you will eventualy have success.
Best of luck to you.
