    Arrow What type of trader are you

    Hi all

    It would be interesting to find out what time-scales members are looking for in trades.

    Are you:

    Scalper: Looking to hold positions for a matter of minutes.

    Day Trader: Looking to close out all positions by the end of the day

    Swing Trader: Holding a trade open for between a day and a week

    Position Trader: A trader who is looking to hold a position for a number of weeks

    Long Term Trader: Someone who is holding a trade open for months at a time

    Buy and Hold Trader: A trader who is looking for a return over a number of years.

    As long as profit, I closed my positions. So scalpers and less than day trader.

    I tried to be long term trader but after I got 30 pips, the price retrace and my profit became small 10 pips and smaller, finally loss - 5 pips.

    It's difficult to hold a long time positions.

    mostly i'm scalping
    still find trading system that comfort with me
    Remember.
    Trading is not a sprint but a marathon. Compounding money is a powerful thing.
    Be patient and persistent
    Exercise discipline
    Always, Always use stops loss
    Protect your profits at all times.
    Accept your losses like a man. If you cant accept your losses you will become a nerverous trader.
    When in doubt stay out.
