If you're consistently losing money in the market,maybe it's not the stocks you're trading,it's the person who's pulling the trigger.The key to successful trading is knowing what works for you and what does not.If you're not keeping "detailed" trade records,you won't have a shot at developing the competency to survive in the market place.It's a lifelong work in progress,just like any other profession.Focus only on your past winning trades.If you haven't had any lately,either start paper trading or use small position size until you do.Know the difference between luck and design.When you start trading winners by design,you will start making money.Mike........

Great advice..... I find paper trading much diffrent than the real thing I will put on a paper trade an not check it for a day or 2....
I always hold my stops firm but always sell too early. Its a quick emotional responce...

Eman,paper trading is a good thing to do if you're new,or if you just need to catch a break from the action.But there's nothing like trading real time with real money on the line.You'll never know what it's like to fell the adrenaline rush,the emotions of pleasure & pain,or of winning & losing money until you get your feet wet.......

Hey MIke Tranz,

How you been?

Things are going well. I am now up to trading pretty much full trade sizes after starting out small.

It has taken me a few years but I finally have a system that suits my personality and that I ame comfortable trading. So much market noise is now silent as I Just play my play and that is it....


Did I see somewhere you where in Calgary? IM in Regina.
