Gaming in Linux is still somewhat behind Gaming in the rest of the world and if your hoping to be able to play all your games for Windows in Linux then you may have a small struggle ahead of you. However one company is helping to make things easier for Linux Gaming. Transgaming produce a program called WineX that is a more advanced version of the Windows emulator Wine that has been specially written for gaming. Though the site does require you to pay $5 a month in order to use the program, this is because certain files are copyrighted.
However you can download a free version and compile it yourself, this gives you OpenGL drivers which are an alternative to DirectX that can be used to play games just the same as Direct3D would. Transgaming currently doesn't support all games but a lot of the big titles are supported including Civ3, Diablo 2, Max Payne, GTA3 and The Sims.
I full list can be found here Some newer games you may find come with Linux installers with them, for instance I brought a copy of UT2003 a few weeks ago and found that on the third CD there was a Linux installer, I did have a few problems with mounting and dismounting drives but this wasn't too hard to get around.
Once installed the game played as well as it did in Windows, which is a massive step forward for me in Linux gaming. You can also buy a seperate Gaming pack for Mandrake Linux, this comes with games like The Sims and uses Transgamings technology in order to work. Hopefully more games will come with Linux installations in the near future.

In long-term strategy, you will keep your trades open for many weeks and also even for months. This is not going to happen in short-term as you will place the trades and closes within hours. People who trade with long-term strategy know it is also good for their career. They get to have time to think about their trades. As they have more time, the market volatility also cannot hit them.
Use the price action signal
Being a long-term trader you should use the Japanese candlestick pattern. Trading CFDsis extremely easy those who know the perfect way to read candlestick charts. Instead of trading the minor support and resistance level, focus on the higher time frame data. Those who are smart always follow the conservative way of trading. As a Forex trader, you have to learn to stay on the sideline. Try to develop the habit of a sniper. You will take one shot and that shot will be your best one. Never try to win all trades.

If possible use the chart pattern trading strategy along with price action confirmation signal. But always remember to trade like a conservative trader.
Volatility cannot take your profit

This is the reason scalpers and day traders lose the most amount of money. They use short-term strategy and they can only keep their trades for hours. The scalpers have to close the trades almost instantly and it is a big risk in their money. If the trend changes or it becomes volatile, they will have to lose all of their money. When you are using positional trading strategy or swing trading strategy that is long term, you can be free from any worries. You know it will not do any harm to your trades as you have got plenty of times. You can leave them open for months. The short-term traders always take the first hit when the market trend changes and gets volatile. If you want to keep yourself safe from volatility, trade with a long-term strategy.
