i had another thread but it wasn't written very good, so i figure i try another thread and address my situation more specifically. i am new to prop trading and getting confused in a mixed up working environment. There isnt any mentor i can seek out for , nor are there any traders that like to discuss things. I can't seem to get good advice from manager either because he seems to only offer advice that encourage heavy volume trading. He kept emphasizing the effect of making 1, 2 pennies on millons of shares. So what can i do to improve trading? I have read lot of fundamental, TA, market psychology and some other market books, but not many directly target at trading. i do buy every issue of SFO, ActiveTrader, and i still find nothing very useful . So please if any one can give me some points on how to pick a direction, form a plan and system I will greatly appreciate PS i have about 50K w/ the firm. i think should would give me a lot intraday BP, by i don't want to use too much leverage on it for now. How big of a position should i take?
