TA and small time investing

  1. First off, I am totally new to the world of TA but have found most of the reading and posts here totally intriguing and I am interested in getting my hands a little dirty applying TA to my trades.

    My question is - just how successful can I hope to be applying TA to a little sandbox account I have with my broker? We are talking like $5000.00 in the account - an amount that would piss me off if I lost it but would not cause any hardship to me financially. How should I get started? Should I have a system ready and waiting or should I just look for some signals and trade on what little knowledge I have of TA.

    Constructive advice appreciated.
