Ah .. most of the standard TA I have back tested actually net net loses most of the time.
That's the advantage of TA and other types of analysis that win more often than they lose-- a big advantage over insider info. TA is far more consistent in its outcome. Inside info givers can turn against you or me or Trader Joe or anyone in a minute. They can start giving the opposite of the correct info-- in order to reel in the fish that they have caught. They seduce you with initially correct info, and then later when you have been lulled into a sense of false security-- boom--they start giving you "info" that will seduce you into taking the opposite side of their own winning trades.
Yes, some great trades, butt, as said net net, the small losers reduce the big winners to below zero
And if you're scapling, then the reverse. Small winners get totally F'd in the A by the bigger losers. Worse with stops.
