    I use RSI momentum based signals to catch bounces use it on liquid pairs and BTCUSD with Hotforex, works good, but ranging markets eat profits. I think at least basic understanding of how to determine general trend could improve my winning ratio.

    How To Start Making Money with Forex as a New Beginner

    I think you should start little-by-little, keeping risk managed by use of tight stop loss and lowered position size. It is much easier to tolerate a series of small loss rather than big one because the former is less unexpected, you gradually arrive to the result so it's easier to adapt.

    Crypto currencies are doomed, the latest attack on crypto world is the FCA ban of crypto derivatives. Without possible extreme returns crypto will quickly lose its charm I guess. But I still occasionally trade BTCUSD with Hotforex using simple ATR-based technique

    Forex becomes gambling when a traders opts for high or full leverage like 1:200, 1:500.
