Again, forget about making millions right now. Work on your entry (method) so that 20 or 30 cent gain at least covers commission or close to it but be consistent (70%) doing it. That may take a few months but so what....the markets are not gooing anywhere. It's taken me about 2 years to really narrow things down. It can be really difficult to built a 100% yes or no entry method.

Some of my entries are obvious in that respect but then there are the 20% to 25% that have the 'gray matter' entry where it is not the best set-up but the odds (the chart, catalysts, etc.) still look favorable. Either way, study your notes and filter out what worked best, what worked worst and go from there.

Right Palmer thats exactly what i noticed too big or hold too long. I have to filter out some duplicate trades on here, but pretty much it boils down to what you were saying. My biggest issue was wrong entry time and not changing strategies for the time of the day... i cant type so its all good men haha

I just write down stocks that have great past history suitable to my trading style. Then i keep an eye on them and just wait for the right setups. A bit of a pain but it beats looking endlessly all the time which i seem to do anyways lol
