So I've been reading several decent trading books over the past year that I determined were good from other posters on ET: A few examples: -Technical Analysis of the Financial Markets, John Murphy -Trading in the Zone, Mark Douglas -Market Wizards I am having trouble figuring out how to transition from reading the books and following the market each day to actaully making progress towards becoming a trader. I have the time, I just don't know what to do. I think I have analysis paralysis and so much information it is overwhelming and don't know what to do so I just spend time on ET trying to figure it out by studying journals and cutting through the bs to gather good nuggets of information. I know I need to engage in actual daily study of the market but I don't know what market(s) to start out with to get my bearings, best charting software to use, etc. Any constructive thoughts to get me going down the road? Once I have a path I am confident in my ability to proceed. I just need that nudge.
