No worries mate.
I remember how frustrating [among many other things] it was learning to trade, so if I can make the journey a bit easier, then great.
I would say probably the most common mistake newbies make when trading after poor risk management [risking too much], is not taking enough price action into account.
When looking at the 15 minute chart, 3-5 days worth of price should be visable.
For the 30 minute chart; 1-2 weeks
1 Hour chart; 2-3 weeks
4 hour chart; 3-6 weeks
Daily chart; 1 Year
The above are minimums, really the more the better if its relevant to the long term trend.
A good example of price action view is XAU/USD [gold in dollars] at the moment. IF you were to look at too little you would probably think that gold is going to get stronger in the medium term and push past $1800. I do beleive it will push past 1800 and probably past 2000 and eventually who knows I wouldnt be suprised if it went past 5000 in the next 10 years, however I think it will probably come back down past 1600 first, because that is what the longterm price action suggests.
ps. I think a lot of newbies think there is a quick fix, crystal ball that will make them millions over night and ultimatley thats why most fail.
