I have been trading off and on for the past 3 years or so. I have basically been treading water the whole time. I haven't blown up an account nor have I really made any decent money. I have never had a mentor and never really spent any money on education besides books. I figured by now that I would be somewhat consistent in making money. I rely mostly on Ichimoku and trade ES,GC and CL. I also trading stocks with 5% or more gap at the open. I'm not sure where I really go from here. My one trader friend suggest I find a mentor and spend money on education. Any advice is appreciated.

Do you know if your Ichimoku or 5% gaps have positive expectancy?

And, think about why I'd ask this question, given your circumstances...
