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)

Some thoughts Sidious. I would skip Miner's book unless you really want to trade completely via fibonacci. I went through that book, a couple of his others, his $oftware and it still didn't help with any edge. The only main thing to know are the 68%-72% retracements and a platform with an indicator that will plot those for you and projections for possible targets. I like Mark Braun's presentation better as it's seems more practical: http://www.mjbraun.net/
; I've only seen his examples videos though and I don't try to daytrade primarily based on fibonacci now.

If you're thinking about what to read next for techniques only.. :

"The Logical Trader" by Mark Fisher; I'm still reading, but I think it's one of the better ones as it brushes on other topics by an expert source.

"Trade what you see" Pesavento & Jouflas about Gartley, or you can alternatively read "webinar-gabinar" thread in the elite section and see Gabriyele's webinars/gabinars. A couple of journals show use of gartleys I think.

Brook's price action book(s). Brooks Price Action - Home But may take a long time to digest and he defines his methodology mostly in his own terms. So maybe Edwards&Magee may be preferred, or videos like below.

Some free videos/video series:
