You’re in the right place Eric, pick a simple trading strategy, make sure the rules cover what to do in the only eventualities that matter - price rises (either as expected or more than expected), price falls (either as expected or more than expected). Open a demo account and trade it like its your life savings until you understand the best and worst points of the strategy and you’re hopefully consistently profitable.
You’re learning throughout about what makes a good strategy, more important than what makes this strategy good. You’ll also learn about risk management/capital preservation, best to do this with Monopoly money.
Good luck and all that.
