Agree that it is not gambling.
Sometimes there are patterns in the market. Even though you don't know how to see pattern, using right tools/ indicators can help to you getting profit.
It's certainly gambling for some people.
I think risk management is the most important things and also to define what is gambling .
There are many things can be gambling , depends on how traders / you how to put your money on it .
Everyone makes mistakes , but if those mistakes is not much hurt , you can keep going to next step / next trade . You still alive , otherwise , you bet on everything into one shot/one decision , then many things also gambling for you .
With Forex market, you need to watch out the movement of currency market as the forex is the ratio of two currency pairs.
Currency movement is closly related to the fundamental and economic data of the country.
As long as you do not take too much risk with high leveraging account, it is just fine.
At some point, it might be safter than stock market if you can control your risk.
It is because you need to concern less on the bankrupcy of country comparing whereas you have to concern more on the bankrupcy of company in stock market.
Just some pointer for starters. :)
It could be gambling if you're not putting five senses on the chart, success is all about mindfulness on what you're doing just like playing chess.
It is true. If you have no idea what you are doing, then anything could be gambling in your life, even buying a car or trip, making friends, marriage and so on.
To avoid anything to become gambling, you need to reduce emotional aspects in your choice.
Same for the forex trading, reducing emotional aspects in your trading is really important.
But for marriage, you might need to keep the emotinoal aspects in it, I guess. :)
