Here are results of back tests, using same strategy to scalp trades versus longer term swing trading.Scalping lost more money  than swing trading, swing trading has higher probability of becoming profitable, depending on the strength of strategy.

 

.The higher the spread a trader pays, the more the trader will lose.The professionals will trade the "lowest spread to volatility" instruments.The more a trader trades, the more the negative spread edge a trader gets.The less a trader trades, the more he is likely to profit.Patience is the most important edge for the retail trader, the patience to wait for a really cheap entry, the patience to wait for days and weeks to take a profit and , the patience to wait during uncomfortable losing periods .This is what Warren Buffet has and traders should search on google to read all about Warren Buffet..Any trader can apply Warren Buffet mindset to trading and be profitable.There are edges in Buffettology.

 

Day traders and intraday traders should search google for success rate of day traders and intraday scalping.I have read 99 % failure rate on dedicated detailed searches.

These are not the EAS I use or trading.This is a testing EA. It is for information gathering purposes only.I look for quality and edge from a testing EA. A trader can not see an edge in a testing EA, unless he knows edges.

 

If I am not incorrect, the market has proved me wrong many times, in the past.I have now found the ultimate edge, that is never to lose money over a series of 8 to 12 trades.Bit like Edison inventing the light bulb, he failed 999 times.

 

Each of my 50 EAS trades only once a week,on average.

    • That's a wise call and it's important to also confirm that the exchange of your chosen should be in compliance and perhaps licensed in your country. 
    • Investing in crypto could be challenging especially the Fear of Missing out Lambo. This mostly affect traders trading strategy and ideology. Predicting the right time to buy is always cumbersome and that is why many analyst advise DCA because it curtails FOMO and gives you a long-term crypto trading mentality. In crypto Dollar Cost Averaging involves investing the same amount of money in a target token at regular intervals over a certain period of time, regardless of price. This will help to control volatility on your portfolios and minimize FOMO For example when you decide to invest $100 on a token and invest $10 daily or weekly or monthly till you fulfilled you $100 target investment on the token irrespective of the price of the token. This strategy helps a crypto trader to build his portfolio over the long term thereby he/she is not bothered by short-term volatility in the broader markets. This strategy mostly favours low-budget traders in building a strong portfolio but the problem most normally encounter is exchange minimum trading amount. One analyst advised on how to mitigate this was to accumulate on exchange that has lower trading fees and later send to where you desire to hold. He also noted that some of this exchanges are good in listing good projects for you to be among the early birds. Do you think DCA is the best method to accumulate token and which exchange offers the lowest tradeable balance and trading fees?
