Hi again Mark.
Its been a few days since you joined and I suspect its only a matter of time before someone happens along here and tells you that 90% of all new traders wipe out their accounts within 6 months and you are betbter off putting your money on a number on the roulette wheel.
Ignore all this bitter negativity. But be aware that the underlying statistic is true (enough to be valued). If most new traders lose money, then surely a way to reduce the probability of joining that group would be to avoid doing what most new traders do.
Mostly, new traders -
trade off very short intra-day time-frames
look for a trend and take a position in the opposite direction
avoid using stop-losses so they don’t get stopped out
These behaviours are driven by fear which arises due to lack of understanding. While you build your knowledge, at least avoid making these mistakes.
