Well, if you have any money left, for Christ sake, take it out and stop trading. The harsh truth is - and it shouldn't be a surprise - that every amateur who enters this business is merely gambling and have really no idea what they're doing. Some people may acquire bits and pieces and understand parts of the market, but they lack the complete understanding that's actually needed to be a consistent winner. Everyone underestimates what they're trying to do. They hear the statistics of failure, but everyone believes themselves to be special and smart. It also seems to be very common on ET to try learning the market by live trading, either in simulator or with live trading. The latter seeming to be most popular. In summary: Give up and do something else with your time and efforts. Invest your money in a passive fund instead.
