    Thanks Raul for the articles. My challenge is about the Support and Resistance. Do we draw them on a daily basis on every chart long and short term.

    • Raul Lopez

      Hello Johanna, we dont need to draw them all over again every day, most of the time the ones that we use the previous sessions are still valid, we just need to adjust them…

    Hello Master Raul,

    once I start reading I can’t stop to finish it until last sentence.
    it’s been very enjoyable reading your articles.
    I think you should compile all your precious articles into a Book and publish it.

    I have a curios question, I think everybody knows this financial market is zero sum games, if some people make profit, some other will make loss. let’s assume everybody read your article and they are all make profit.
    the question is Who is gonna pay for that?

    • Raul Lopez

      Hello Denny, I’m glad they have been helpful!

      Very good question… I guess the Forex market its pretty large, and a very very very very small portion of traders read what I write here… so we have nothing to worry about… for now :)

      Good luck!
