"Don't measure water depth WITH both feet", ie. don't get in over your head. Great first blog, and a lot of good points. I would like to suggest one thought... It's perfectly fine to copy someone else's strategy tick for tick in the beginning because you may not really know who you are yet as a trader. Newbies might not know that xyz makes them really uncomfortable and that efg would actually work better given their personality, schedule, etc.

It's only from going through what another trader is doing that you realise, "hey, that actually might work better if I did it this way".

let's not forget many of the guru's took 9 plus months to get consistent. and many of them had some bog losses even after they were consistent. we don't have to study 17 hrs a day or ever make 100k per year. my life will be dramatically improved if i make 1k to 2 k permonth and even if it takes 2 yrs to get there it can work. just don't run out of money and don't quit.

After looking at your trades, maybe you could size down to 100 shares. You may be trading too big a position size relative to your experience. While studying is valuable, so is trading and so is learning from losses on real trades. Just do it small and get better THEN size up as your confidence and experience grows. Good luck!
