I found this forum while blindly searching for a legitimate mentor for the S&P 500 e-minis. I have just 4 months trading experience (ThinkOrSwim) with plenty negative $$$ issues. I did not know this kind of forum existed, very happy to find so many other beginners. Perhaps we can all help each other here, and it seems we aren't alone in what we're experiencing. Living in Hawaii has the bit difficult challenge in that the US market opens up here at 3:30am. Asian and European markets are a bit more real time.
Striving to learn properly. Mahalo everyone!

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?

Hey bro, just wondering if you've heard of Farmers Market Hawaii, Pineapple Clan? My good bro started and is the owner of that company. I've been wanting to start a Trading Room because I know how difficult this can be, and more than likely, you'll lose a lot without real time experience. I traded a prop account for a mid size firm in NY, and now trade only the ES and NQ.
There's so much more to this than just using technical analysis, which for the most part, is lagging way behind what's really going on. Hit me up on here when you'd like
