I just need the support of someone to keep me on track from time to time. I am lost.

I'm not really expecting much, but if anyone is trading fulltime and has been consistently profitable for a number of years, and wouldn't mind receiving an occasional email/call from me....please let me know.

You really should start a journal if that is what you expect.. There are plenty of people who will give you some input if asked I do believe.. The answers to your situation are fairly straight forward if you will put in the time.

A couple of questions:

1. Do you have a defined edge that will deliver you the results you are looking for?
2. Is that trading edge consistent with your personality type?
3. Is it written in a detailed trading plan?
4. Have you back tested this trading plan at length to validate its edge?
5. Have you traded it in SIM long enough to insure you can see all of the setups well enough at the hard right edge?
6. Have you then taken it live and seen what gaps you have from your theoretical plan and your ability to trade it?(most likely psychology issues)

If you haven't completed all of these steps .. you do not need a mentor.. you need to go back to work.

What you need to work on should be very very obvious.. And there are plenty of threads on edges, trading plans, psychology, as well as some great books..

Best to you..
