It's been a week now, maybe not enough to measure success, but I'm a litte lost as to why I've lost money 5 of the 6 days I've been "In business". Some of the things I always do: 1. Set stops (Usually .25 to .60) 2. Look for good set ups 3. Sit on the sidelines most the time 4. I never "over trade". I lose x amt of money and stop 5. I tend to trade the same stocks on a daily basis ( RIMM, TNH, GS, AAPL, GRMN, SNDK, VLO, OIH, ICE) ... yet I'm still losing. I guess my questions are: 1. What are some of the things I might be doing wrong that many traders over look? 2. Are my stops too loose for day trades? 3. Should I trade more to take advantage of the days action?
