The market movement is more like Random Walk. It is quite difficult to predict direction in higher time frames which are generally used in intraday charts.

On top of that your position sizing, risk management, execution strategy should be sound for you to succeed in intraday.

The strategy you use in intraday should also have positive expectancy, if you want to succeed over a longer duration.

The simple answer is a lack of education on TA, Money Management, and Psychology (emotion control). if u r an expert in only one and average in the other two u will get decent profits.....if u r an expert in all 3 u will get unlimited .........thank you .......so increase the education levels...

It is greed. Lack of education, Psychology, finally over-enthusiasm takes the toll of trading balance
