Trading since 2012, made all the mistakes. Humble advice? Find a mentor.
Don't trade until you learn proper setups. Practice sitting on your hands.
Patience, Study, study, study. Patience.
Expose yourself to quality setups and you can make money in any market. Be early to locate relative strength, then exit when things get heated. Shorts are also okay. Find weak stocks and position yourself for continuation.
