You are not successful in the stock market. Throw away every single dvd and book you ever bought about the stock market and every shallow piece of advice on this website. Find some monthly and day trading charts. For a month and hopefully longer if you have the time around 3-4 hours a day examine day trading charts. Do not trade at all. Only look at price action. Examine all different types of stocks. Look for the most profitable opportunities and tell yourself you will make 1,2 even 3% a day. Write down every single idea. There you go, thats how you find success. It's called your own studies. Try it. If you can't make this type of commitment or do not have the mental focus then quit because your a waste of money in the market.
