"Getting it" is a relative term. It all depends on the person.
I have been doing countless hours of research since I began this adventure and the best advice I have found thus far, many times in fact, is to have a solid realistic plan and do not deviate from that plan until you are confident your new plan will be better than your old plan.
The second piece of advice pertained to "where you play" in the market. You might think about looking to play in an area of the market you have specific interest/knowledge in. Learning studies show you are more apt to learn about subjects you care about over those you don't.
The principal idea behind that advice is to specialize in an area and master it before you move on to a new area. Scattered focus leads to misplaced knowledge and lower productivity.
I doubt you are going to find any one particular person to guide you, at least for free anyways. Just do your research in an area you have interest or knowledge in and look for a good stable to work off. Forums like these are great for insight when people are willing to offer it up. I like to call those lil gems "keepers"
Oh and the last thing, I agree totally about not force buying. You just have to accept there will be days where you make no moves. Coincidentally it looks as if I will close out today with 0 transactions, but it isn't 2 yet so who knows.
