Iâm a fairly active trader. However, I still reckon myself a beginner who's spent a lot of dough on worthless systems, read a lot of books but who repeatedly experiences losses and hasn't managed to develop any good trading approach or system. Naturally, I want my trading to be more systematic/profitable than what it is now. Obviously, if this continues Iâll soon have to devote most of my time to ârealâ office work. Thinking about how to achieve stable & positive results and get through the beginnerâs stage faster, I think maybe it's a good idea to give it a rest for a while and try to come up with new ideas, read more books, paper trade? Or maybe I should join a prop firm where Iâm not alone plus I could compare my results with those of others. What do you think a newbie should do to trade like a pro?
