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.

from last post till now my focus has been learning a brand new platform. the first week I learned I had bad internet connection that was causing platform lock ups and tracked it down to a bad router on ISP side. Router was replaced and no lock up since platform running smooth.

this week working on a set of time frames that works best for me with BDB system got it dialed in to 30 minute and 987 tic for trend with 333t for entries.
