hi all - I just registered today to the forum. As my name indicates, I am a bad trader. The only success I have found is in buy and selling retail products. I love it, actually. But back in 2012, I tried my hand in shares and CFD's.
When I began, I had delusions of grandeur - setting up stops so short you would have to kneel down to pat its head, and limits so long that the best bionic eye could not catch a glimpse of, and in turn lost money. The money I lost, was insignificant - however, that did not stop me. Learning a lesson, I came back with a vengeance, with some new information, and then lost again.
Repeated this cycle about 10 times, before I gave up and went back to the only investing I know - buying retail products, and retailing them. Currently I am in the process of building a retail store online because my initial industry is on a downturn and I need something to fall into. But I still could not get the fact that I had failed so utterly miserable on trading indexes.
So, I've opened up another play money account with IG, and am trying to learn the ropes.
So many of you here are just fantastic and carry so much knowledge up there in your noodles - where can I go to learn these skills. I have come to the realization long ago that this game is not something to earn big bucks really fast and is not a "get rich quick" scheme that so many others perceive it to be.
Thank you for your time
