i have started trading with about 300 bucks last july, slowly adding cash to the account at one point i was up about 1900 bucks but after recent nokia stock fail im back to 700 or so gains i tried buying smaller number of multiple stocks but it was a massive headache to keep track of 10 or 20 stocks like my friend suggested so eventually i downsized lower and lower and now i basically watch one or two stocks and buy as many shares as i can with cash non margin account. when it works it works great but when it fails it fails great as well and kicks be right back where i started. it made more sense to buy dollar stonks and go all in when i had under 1000 cash account and i thought that if i slowly moved up to more expensive stocks it would be better. but it doesnt seem that way.in last 8 months i seem to have lost my beginers lucks and my stock picking success kinda went down to stall, not loss but no gain either. what is a good strategy to use when starting with only few 1000 bucks(right now im at 3500 should i split it in 2-3 stocks or go back to dollar stocks until i have much more money to invest into better companies?
