    I'm dealing with some psychological issues and looking for a mentor, somebody who likes to share his experience, his way of dealing with similar issues.

    I'm trading equities for little over a year now. My approach works but I need help with discipline issues and following my own rules. I know the answer is very simple "just do it" but for some reason I can't get to the next level and keep doing the same mistakes.

  2. In trading only you are the one that can change. A mentor cannot do this for you. It must come from inside you. They can only point show you the door. They cannot walk through it for you.

    I've had slumps myself. I've traded since 99. In that time I could write book on the things I have learned.

    Start by using a journal. Write down everything at the time you trade. Market conditions, trading idea's your mental state at the time etc.....

    Evaluate your journal over time. I personally have 12 journals worth of my info. It has helped me overcome many issues.
