As a newbie I would advise three things -
- trade the simplest strategy you can find
- avoid day-trading
- don’t buy in a downtrend, don’t sell in an uptrend
Use daily charts. Find prices which are already in a clear uptrend or downtrend. Enter with the trend when a pull-back has occurred using a pre-set entry order at the pull-back’s lowest high (for an uptrend) or the pull-back’s highest low (for a downtrend). Set your stop at the day’s other extreme. Size your position to 1% of your account capital.
Good luck and good trading
