@williammorris16 Yeah, thank you. I guess it does really come down to being a new trader. 1. my confidence isnt great 2. Im not properly planning before trades. Thank you for the help.

I miss dozen of them a day. You can’t trade them all and you need accept the idea your eyes can’t be everywhere. If you miss trades on stocks you are watching closely then its another problem : you might have the fear to pull the trigger when things are setting up. That means you’re most likely not prepared enough. Prepare your trades more. If the things you’re looking for are lining up, you shouldn’t be hestitating. Try visualization. Be in the trade even before it actually happens. Good luck

don't focus on what you've missed. that'll destroy you. focus on opportunities.

I've also borked an order too, and had the etrade software lag out and try to screw me up too, keep at it man, youll start making headway soon, it took me at least a week and a half

When I started I did paper trade but I wrote all my trades down and still do. I only used money I had and would risk. I started taking notes on the plays I did good on and the ones I profited why I bough what time and the stock/catalyst/volume/ ect. When i switched to rreal money I took small positions with the same type plans and I have been slowly increasing my positions and getting more comfortable. Its very mental and can get emotional get that in check and study the charts and the odds wil

Good luck, I've been at it now for about 2.5 weeks and my first o/n holds where horrible choices. I've had 2 good size losses and one really big one that hurt bad, but I learned. 2 things that have helped me a lot where reading up and watching videos on t-line trading and spotting pullbacks vs reversals. Find your weaknesses and focus on improving them.

Also might I add I'm still about $250 short of breaking even after 2.5 weeks but my wins are slowing getting bigger and more consistent. I too was almost discouraged thinking I was a complete idiot for even trying but every day I remind myself that its a new chance to learn and to not try to bite off too much otherwise it'll bite you instead lol.

I also use etrade, just be careful sometimes it gets laggy, at least for me anyway, I've had it bork an order or two

Please be aware of the above rule if you use etrade for shorting. I lost a big chunk of my account due to it
