There's one problem when you play short term FOREX, so short term that you are behind a screen on the whole day, it's that FOREX is also at night. Companies can ensure to make 24-hour round teams of investors, sure. But, you, as an human, you can't, yet, except if you are fighting the nature but then, I guess you may think about another more profitable job if it's the case Back to the humans, so, when you are doing short term trading, how do you handle the job? You sell all your FOREX stocks when you go sleeping? You put alerts? You rather put automatic sells/buys at some points defined so it can't go too much wrong over night? Or you just let it because one night is probably not enough to make that big problem to you?
