A quick list to help.
1. Stop whining, no one likes a complainer.
2. Stop trading, you can't lose money if you're not in the market.
3. Take a little bit of the money you saved not trading and seriously consider becoming a futures.io (formerly BMT) Elite Member. It provides access to more threads on the forum which contain TONS and TONS of good information.
4. Read other people journals, try and understand their approach (don't try and copy it, because the lazy rarely win), and the way they view the market.
5. Start thinking about creating YOUR OWN approach to the market, something YOU understand. Every indicator or tool you use tells you something, know exactly what it tells you, dont just add it to your chart because it looks like it fits something in your market.
6. Spend lots of time just watching your trading product. How it interacts with the rest of the market. How aggressively it moves. Your trading product should be your best friend. Learn about it, enjoy learning new things about it.
Trading is a marathon not a sprint, and no one can run it for you... Your pretty lucky to have stumbled across futures.io (formerly BMT) because it's full of great traders with a wealth of knowledge, use it to your advantage.

Agreed, I think you are putting the cart before the horse here. You can use a demo account for awhile and get the hang of trading. You will not master the trading psychology this way because risking real money changes the way people think, but at least you can work on a strategy of your own that works. From there the psychology thing can be worked on with some small starter account and also by working on being self aware--learning to use your frontal lobe to wrangle in your baser instincts.

Trading is a lonely business. Just the way it is. Best way to test your ideas is to do it in SIM. Hard reality but few people will help you at least they way you are looking for. Many will take advantage of you and sell you their ideas and access to their trading rooms etc.. However, you can glean a lot of solid info and direction in this forum. You have to help yourself and stop trading with real money in the state of mind you are in. Then start working to develop a system that you can track and keep stats on. It takes a long time and at times can be a painful process. There is a time to go live as SIM is not reality. But back testing then testing in SIM mode is paramount.
"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."
