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)

Two accounts: one for speculation and one for long term investments.

Successful people will do what unsuccessful people won't or can't do!

One for long and one for shorts that way NT does not get crossed if get multiple offsetting entries on different strategies.

"The day I became a winning trader was the day it became boring. Daily losses no longer bother me and daily wins no longer excited me. Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."

One size doesn't fit all (i.e.: no brokers can meet all requirements) + good risk management to diversify between brokers:
- One for Automated Day Trading: IB
- One for Swing Trading: Low cost private broker
- One for active mangagement - registered and non registered: Bank Broker

Same for me.

IB for day and swing trades, mainly US stocks and futures.
Questrade for Canadian stocks and ETF swing trades
RBC Direct for long term trades in registered accounts.

It is hard to find the Truth when you start your search with a preconceived notion of what the Truth will be.
