Mike

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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

You might want to consider the merits of walking first.

Generally speaking books aren't that great at explaining how to trade. Mostly because trading is a living, moving thing and books are static.

Videos and live trading demo's are a better medium but there's so much fake stuff out there.

If I had to pick books it would be:
1- Markets in Profile by Jim Dalton
2 - One good trade by Mike Bellafiore
3 - Golf is not a Game of Perfect by Bob Rotella
4 - No BS Day Trading by John Grady
5 - The Hour Between Dog and Wolf: How Risk Taking Transforms Us, Body and Mind - John Coates

You may notice that one of those is not a trading book, yet it is still the best one in my opinion.

If you have any questions about the products or services provided, please send me a Private Message or use the futures.io "Ask Me Anything" thread

'How Risk Taking Transforms Us, Body and Mind'

It is a fascinating and yet scary thought that a day-long, year-long risk taking activity such as trading can have lasting effects and changes on our bodies and minds, not necessarily for the best.

In fact, taking into account the absolute harshness of the trading adventure from the start ... It really has to be worth it. But who could possibly know without getting there.
