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?

I use several of them geared toward traders. However, the term active trader is misused as far as what all these magazines contain. The closest to an active trader magazine was the one published by Wasendorf's PFG (partially at my expense) and now gone for the next 50 years :
TASC - A subscriber since 1984 (I have a full bookcase of past to current issues), the grand daddy of technical analysis. It is for almost everyone and indicator and system fans, but made me a technical analysis junkie.
Active Trader - A newer one for average aspiring and beginning retail traders - articles are targeted to learning traders. It is OK, but I don't read it anymore.
Futures Magazine - The most serious magazine, both beginners and pros can pick a nugget here and there, good market information, and also frequently prints good technical analysis articles. The nice thing about FM is that you can get it online for free through your sponsoring broker.
For general and other types of trading, investing, etc, Bill O'Neil's IBD, Financial Times, and Baron's will feed any market beast with a big appetite..
