Flip a coin - heads long, tails short.  Hope this helps!

and this system will work perfectly fine so long as losing trades are closed early and winning trades are let to run so that the average win of the winning trades is greater than the average loss of the losing trades, a 50% win rate (coin flip) only needs a risk (loss) to reward (win) ratio of 1:1.5 to be profitable, see graph below;

no, haven't read that one though have heard of it, is it recommended?

Well I only just got it myself, had a quick flick through the section on TA and he isn't a fan.  Will need to see what the rest of the book contains, and what he recommends instead :D

Just making a start on Burton Malkiel's 'A random walk down Wall Street'.  Found a nice quite already: 'Financial analysts in pin-striped suits do not like being compared to bare-assed apes.'

But presumably Burton is getting paid to provide financial advice himself?

    • Charting the Markets - February 6, 2023 FTSE 100, DAX and S&P 500 tiptoe lower following strong US jobs report. EUR/USD and GBP/USD are topping out while EUR/GBP rallies. And gold, Brent crude, and natural gas head lower, as payrolls strengthen the dollar.                         This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
    • Natural gas has been in a consistent downtrend over recent months, and Joshua Mahony expects to see this decline continue. Josh therefore favours a short position, with a stop-loss at 2630 and target of 2232. He also looks back at the recent EUR/USD, USD/JPY, aluminium, and USD/CAD trades.

    • What do we now know about the economic outlook given the meetings this week at the Federal Reserve (Fed), Bank of England (BoE) and European Central Bank (ECB)? IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor caught up with foreign exchange analyst Richard Snow, from Daily FX, who discussed the potential continuation of the long EUR/USD trade.
