This thread is meant to assemble the advice from Elite Traders in response to the many new traders who have posted threads asking for advice on getting started. Hopefully new traders may be able to look through here and find some answers to the questions that might be on their minds, without having to start a whole new thread that will invoke all the same responses from other Elite Traders. To keep it concise and on-topic, this thread will be read-only. If you have a thread or specific post that you think should be included in this thread, please send it to me hii a_ooiioo_a in a private message, so I can then post it here. If you try to post it here yourself it may get deleted by the moderator, as I am requesting that this thread be "closed" to keep it read-only. Thanks!
