    If you fail to use a stop loss and your account is swept dry after one trade, do you say you are unlucky? If you take a leverage too big and misuse it then you have to pay and go bankrupt, are you unlucky? If you overtrade the market because of greed and lose your hard-earned money, are you unlucky? NO! You are simply being too thick in the head to follow simple trading instructions

    Forex trading has nothing to do with luck. Personally, I believe in luck, just as I believe that luck should be left for casino and other gambling business. Forex is a matter of patience, analysis, risk management and a lot of seriouseness. Keep luck away

    Luck is important, and I believe some people just cant make it in trading because they are unlucky. But what I've learnt so far, is that many people who fail do so because they started trading thinking that since they are lucky at the casino, they'll also be lucky and get-rich-quick through forex. Total lie

    Yes in forex trading can do businesson luck but it is of no use. You will certainly remain in danger zone while working on risky ways of trading. Forex is different from gaming gambling and casino. If you want that ay you should directly go to that things not in forex. Forex is a business of a lot of patience aswell ans management . you will know this thing with experience and practice.

    Those who say that success in forex is not important, let them take part in the competition of traders. And when you don’t win with your trading systems, what do you say? What are your opponents lucky, but you do not? I sometimes take part in contests. And I see how lucky some more than me. And some traders have more skill than mine. Therefore, they win.

    Success is important but rely on other things like luck , market favor or take high risk for high profit is not a proper excercise . Every trader should get full experience of market so that he can face very situation confidently. Some one in competitin will not get success if he just see luck he has to do own decisions that will lead hom towards right lines that will brong any winning situation.

    I do not think anyone will say success is not important how ever you can say some people not believe in luck while trading. Skill had much importance in success. In any competition market is same for competitors ,only those will get good positions who trade the base of skill and experience

    Don't believe luck at all. I've used to think that it is only me who makes "luck" to come or go. This is me who make a trades. It's me who decide to sell or buy. If I analyzed bad it is only my fault. If I analyzed good it's my merit. It is sometimes easier to say:"Oh, he/she's just luck". No, he/she's maybe just worked hard to get the result.

    No offence. Just my thoughts:D

    Are you going to open your trading platform in the morning and say – do I feel lucky today? It sounds like a gambling to me. Forex has nothing to do with testing luck on this market, but has to do with testing your knowledge and skills
