...has seen this before. It has been a while, but everyone knows how it ends. Carry on.

And everyone typically learns best by their own experience, the kid touches the hot stove no matter how many times the mom says "don't touch it" --- but usually just once

As traders, we seem to really like hot stoves... it takes longer to learn what not to do

In all seriousness, we can offer the best advice in the world, in the most friendly or most serious way, but still at the end of the day the lesson must be learned by the individual, it cannot be learned for him on behalf of another.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
