Just remember, you must learn how to lose before you can win. Tim G blew up his account SEVERAL times before becoming profitable. Keep at it brotha. Cut down position size, stick to your plan, and most importantly, cut losses quickly and move on. Learn from your mistakes.

Yes, it hurts to lose. But, I believe that you are building your trading character and wisdom. I have learned from Tim.I only use about 10% of my portfolio to stop the pain.

It's not a loss if you learn from it, but tuition.

If you haven't been tracking the setups you are playing, then you should start doing that. That is how I found success. I thought I was really good at identifying ABCD patterns and buying morning panics. But after i started tracking the setup for every play I made, I found I wasn't actually profitable in either of those, and I was actually really profitable playing breakouts. It is okay for you to get an idea of what other people are successful with, but you really need to find out what is worki

I think that buying first red day panics, especially OTC overextended panics, is a real good pattern, and it's all about the entry. If you enter at the wrong time it can completely screw up your risk and make you nervous in a trade. So if you see a potential setup unfold, pull the trigger - don't hesitate. And above all remember: It's a war not a battle.

Screen time. That is the only thing I can recommend that will allow you to get better. Keep studying and keep trading. Its like sports. You have to practice and practice and practice and even then you still arent good until you play in the game and know what pressure feels like. Be patient and be consistent. It will eventually come together.

@Kody They have some videos on the Etrade site, it doesn't look complete yet though. I would wait a while before opening an account with them... give them time to fix the bugs.
