I've used the Trend Breaker Strategy for a number of years - mainly on the lower time frames for scalping purposes. Personally, I prefer to be in and out of my trades fairly quickly as I don't have the patience for longer term trades. Whilst the longer term trades may deliver more pips overall, I almost always succumb to the "instant gratification" of scalping.
However, I will still apply longer term trades if I feel the set up is going to be a good option but I tend to run a separate account for my longer term trades as a "set and forget" type trade.
In our trading community, we have a number of people who don't want to be sat in front of a computer all day staring at charts - and that's completely understandable. Some people don't have the time availability to be sat looking at charts - because they have a day job, they have a young family, they have hobbies... any number of reasons.
I happen to enjoy it!
Having said that we also have a number of people who enjoy the scalping side of trading forex and prefer to get in and out of their trades fairly quickly and bank their profits, knowing that they have locked in some money and are growing their trading account.
