Consider moving to a more reliable broker. LF has a bad habit of using vague rules to grab profits and block withdrawals. You can trade there for a long time with no problems, but once they decide to nail you, there's nothing you can do about it.

I am not sure if I totally understand your question, but FWIW: Trading has nothing to do with gambling. Those who claim they have never lost a trade probably have never traded.

After reading/researching the pedigree/health of a race horse (fundamental analysis) and past performances (technical analysis) a punter places a bet for that horse to win the race. For that, we called it "gambling" or "punting"..


After doing fundamental & technical research and analysis on currencies pair, we place a trade position in anticipation and probable movement of that currencies pair. For that, and as a matter of course, we do not (heavens forbid) dare called it "gambling"...but "trading" because that sounds more "professional".

So, nooooooo, trading the forex is most certainly 100% NOT GAMBLING :p

If we really think about it,probabilities trading systems damage the market itself.
When the best practice (for both accounts and stress) is find entry point S+R , measure Risk Reward , choose more reward . stop loss take profit , next chart.

Technically speaking, yes. It is risking.
So is driving down the road; or for guys as large as me, so is going up a flight of stairs.

That wasn't the OP's question. Risking doesn't equal gambling. You get nowhere in life without risking (don't know if I have ever come across the verb "To Risk" in its gerund form before, just saying...).

Hello to all..I'm newbie here and that question passed through my mind several times: Is trading a form of gambling?
I find answer that somehow maybe it is, but only if you are uneducated, if are trading emotionaly..
Here is what I find on one web:
All forms of trading and investment can be construed as a form of gambling, although neither are the same as playing the lottery, roulette or betting. Traders seek price fluctuations and investors seek return on investment. Both require a calculated risk that is minimized by knowledge. You are always gambling when you don’t know what you are uneducated, trading emotionally or with a “hot tip”. Calculated risks are taken in all investments. People risk huge sums of money and not every one succeeds. Even when there is a track record of success as in many franchises there is still no guarantee. Their investment becomes a calculated risk. The Forex market is no different. When you trade not knowing what you are doing, or off a tip, you are gambling. When you trade after you have been educated or mentored by a successful program, or by other successful traders, you are now taking a calculated risk.

For now, I'm still using my demo's account...and I'll see can I become a trader or a gambler
