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.

some websites about the media

News has become a self serving propaganda machine. So what else is new. The concentration in a few hands makes it much worse.

Got a problem with that? Emperor Ming can always consign you to THE MINES. The US needs to be more like the DPRK. We will get there.

food for thought........at least according to the Motley Fool... take it with a grain of salt .... but still an intelligent argument

Misinformation is harmless when most people choose to be completely uninformed.

Hmm, not sure I agree. I don't want this thread to turn into a political thread, but lets just say there is a certain mainstream TV network that gets its name from an animal that pushes hate speech and misinformation to a whole new level. The amount of misinformation spewed is very much NOT harmless, because so many people believe it.

Obviously, other TV stations have their own agendas, but I've never seen the kind of pure hatred on other stations as what you see on the animal-named one.

I used to listen to Limbaugh and then Hannity. Eventually I realized how "fascist"-like toned they sounded. Amazingly they continue to counterclaim the majority of the "mainstream media news industry" is all in the camp of the other "side". Now not much to listen to or take seriously for "factual" news. I just watch the Fox brand for their movies now. Thanks to kbit ,Zondor, and some others on futures.io (formerly BMT), I'm glad to have caught on to zerohedge, and alternative shows like MaxKeiser, and Schiff and Molyneux. But now RT seems to have been recently Putin-stamped. I was sad (as I'm sure many were) when Ms. Lyster left for yahoo news and her "Capital Account" show was ended. Great guests and Ms. Lyster never guided an agenda and always seemed investigative. She should have learned how to trade for extra income!

Network named after an animal, indeed.

Posters to this thread, please be careful what you say about my media network, lest my little assistant consign you to THE MINES.

I think the internet could lead to a little bit more diversity.

Well, I don't believe I was defining "uninformed" as not watching FNC. Who or what is a reliable source of information is a matter of opinion and any information contrary to someone's opinion will always be classified as either "hate speech" or "misinformation". I define uninformed as completely oblivious to the major issues that will affect their future because they make no effort to educate themselves sufficiently to even form an opinion. If you don't believe me, then ask several friends or relatives who the chairman of the fed is and see how many even know what the fed is. This is a problem because the current system is unsustainable and because most people don't have a clue or simply don't care and therefore neither does Washington. In the end we will all pay dearly for their greed, I know because I already have. I also know it is going to get worse.
