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.

Rienno, I do agree with Anituchka the 3 book series covers all whats in the first book and is a much better read and clearer to understand.
Thanks Anituchka for the hint of Brooks Trading Course - Price Action Trading was just what I was searching for...

Out of all the Al Brroks books, is the "price charts bar by bar" one the best one to start off with?

Or do the other (ranges, trends, reversals) ones cover all of that, inidividually in each setting?

Just looking for the best way to tackle this difficult content...

You should skip the first book and instead read his 3 new books. He also has a video course. See this thread https://futures.io/trading-reviews-vendors/23611-al-brooks-trading-course-www-brookstradingcourse-com.html

I have all of Brook's books. I would advise getting his newer 3 (ie: range, trend reversal). They essentially cover the same information but it is set out in a slightly more understandable / logical format.

Keep in mind, these books are heavy going and by no means an easy read.

I would start with the four or so futures.io (formerly BMT) webinars Al did, they are much easier to follow than the books.

Good point and very true, didn't think of that. Another suggestion might be to just get one of Al's three new books after watching the webinars. This would give you a feel for the content, writing style etc before purchasing all of them.

Thank you for the suggestions everyone. Sounds like the webinars first, followed by the 3 most recent (trend/, range, reversal) are the best way to go ..

I'll check out the course also.
