1) Most profesional Traders' methods are base on trading on the direction of the main trend.

Although I agree with your comments about trading in the direction of a confirmed trend, it depends entirely on your definition of “trend” & on which timeframe you’re observing it.
For example, there are very distinguishable trends available on tick & 1 minute charts several times a day across most pairs. And depending on the volatility of a particular pair, a good percentage of those micro timeframe trends provide very acceptable reward to risk ratios.
That’s not to say most folks would choose to trade via those timeframes, but it doesn’t alter the fact that trends are continually available to trade at the micro level.
I’m sure all the systems & methods on the front page of this site are designed to generate profits, otherwise they wouldn’t have been recommended in the first place.
In theory a member should be able to pick any one of them straight off the shelf, familiarize themselves with the technicalities of it on a demo platform & after a short period, be comfortable to trade it, should it suit their personality.
But it’s not the system or method that will guarantee success for the trader. It’s how the trader operates, works & adapts that system or method to their own style & personality that will determine whether it’s a success or not. And that's a whole different ball game entirely.
