A friend introduced me to Shadowtraders in July. I'm now in my 7th week of sim trading but still getting sketchy results.
My friend has been very helpful and supportive, but uses a proprietary variation on their system so there's significant limitations of what I can learn directly from him.
I know that most of my mistakes are my own and a natural part of the learning curve, but I'm struggling to identify and learn from my choices. So I'd REALLY love to have a few fellow traders working off the same basic charts, indicators, and set-ups to better differentiate incorrect choices from correct but unlucky choices. As well as pesky incorrect choices that got lucky.
So how this might look is chatting about what specific strategies we'd like to collectively explore, find a common approach, jump in, and share trade journals. Maybe once we're up and running we can post the journals here on BM.
OR if you're already successfully using a Shadowtraders strategy and would benefit from mentoring me on your exact approach, I'll be an eager and appreciative mentee.

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?
