At some time during your trading journey you need to sit down and think about what you are doing and how you may need to change the way you approach trading. Trading is challenging. The only thing stopping you from becoming a successful trader is you.
As a new trader you believe that you can out trade the other traders in the market and make money consistently, otherwise you wouldn't even attempt it. If trading were easy wouldn't everyone do it? If it worked where would the money come from to pay these traders everyday? Who would supply the money?
You are allowed into the market to test your skill trading against the pros who run these markets. The first step in becoming a successful trader is awareness of what is really going on and what action you plan to take in order to succeed.
How money is made and lost in the financial markets was and will always have to be the same as in the past, in the present, and hundreds of years into the future. Learning these principles and applying them to your trading is the first step to developing your mindset and put your thinking on a path to success.
Trading is a game and you need to participate in that game a certain way to win. Proper participation is a learned skill that comes from experience. You are not born with that skill.
If traders spent 10% of the time they spend on searching for indicators, software, and "strategies" thinking about what trading really is and what is really going on they would immediately improve their results by doing less of what doesn't work and begin the process of figuring out what does work and what does need to be done to get them on the road to consistent profitability.
