Tim, I need a shoulder to cry on. I must have a learning disability. I am 57 years old and obviously a slow learner. Could be the age? I have watched so many of your DVD's and I get thinking I know what to do but I don't. Here's the truth: I buy at the top, sell at the bottom, get in too early, sell too late, cut winners short, add to losers, miss out on the big moves, etc., etc. I've won a few, lost a lot. I've taken a $15000 account down to $8000. I see myself blowing my account but I have a hard time quitting. Is my story a unique one? What do I do. I work full time, glad to have a job but would like to trade successfully to get my retirement in order. Okay, i'm done crying. What's your advice?

only trade the best set ups... change mindset on trading. Be a retired trader and ask every yourself every trade, "is this worth my hard earned cash"? you got this man. just believe in yourself and trust the process

I'm a slow learned myself. I remember @timothysykes mentioning that he's also a slow learner himself in HTMM. What I do even if it takes longer than the appointed time in each DVD is take notes, pause, rewind until I got the notes I need to move on. This helps me out understand a whole lot more than listening the DVDs and say I've studied.

Learning slow is the way to go, it saves you a ton of $ in long run!

handiman - if you're not keeping a trading journal, consider starting one today. print all your trades' charts and go over your entry's and exits. then watch tim grittani's trading tickers and as many of mark crook's webinars where he emphasizes buying off of key support levels. and size down until you begin to gain confidence. you're not too old to learn, i know because i'm in a similar situation. good luck, stay positive.
