It is not Leverage that s the "killer", it is the lack of knowledge and experience in using the Leverage that is the "killer"!

Please note that those trades are not Winners (nor Losers), but orders that are currently still open in either a profitable position or in a loosing position. It does not in any way reflect if the order will end up being closed as either profit or as loss.

Also, any recently opened order, will automatically open as in Loss due to spread. In summary, those stats don't really say much!

I did not say it was not a fact! I said, that what was important is how that fact is interpreted. It is not the "Leverage" that is the culprit, but the "ignorance" of the users that are using such high leverage that is the root cause.

I use high Leverage yet I am profitable! Why am I not one of the "statistics"? Because I know how to properly access my risk, so Leverage is not the "Evil" but Ignorance about it is!

EDIT: With regards to the "Screenshot" of the 17% Winners, all I was saying is that those stats do not have any bearing on the matter because they are about something totally different and calls to my point of lack of understand that leads people to reach incorrect conclusions.

EDIT2: If one wants to shows the stats of how there is a very small percentage of traders that are profitable, then one must use stats of Closed orders and not of Open orders.

Did you even read my post? I already stated that I don't dispute those facts but I am disputing how you are using other unrelated facts without understanding their meaning! Anyway, no need to answer! I am signing off this discussion!
