Important is understanding the TRUTH about stock MARKET which nobody tells you but everyone knows.
Before talking about TRADING.
You need to understand functionality of stock market.
There are 2 types of traders.

And institutions wins same no.of times.
So to make consistent money in stock MARKET best solution is to follow institutions.
Whenever institutions buys or sells they do it in VOLUME, volume is the only thing which differentiate institutions and retail.
Why Most Traders Lose Money and Why the Market Requires It.
Price Extremes Require Nearly Everyone to Get Onboard.
To understand why most traders lose, we need to look at how prices move. We also need to consider the large number of people who get involved right when the price is about to turn. This is where the mass losses happen.
One big problem is that a very large number of people get involved right near the top. For example, a stock has been rising for 2 years and as more people find out about it they start piling in. But there is only a limited number of people who care about that stock and are willing to buy it. Once the masses have piled in, there is no one else to buy and the people who bought earlier in the trend start to sell, which then scares the people who bought late in the trend, and the domino effect begins bringing prices back down.
Avoiding mass losses, and making profits as an individual, will be discussed later on. For now, my point is to show that most people get involved near turning points. Which means most people lose, and are in the fact the catalyst for turning the market the other way. There is a limit to everything, and the mass frenzy causes that limit to be hit.
The market is unlikely to reverse to any significant degree until almost everyone is on one side. Which means almost everyone who joined that party late is going to lose. A bunch of people may just decide to wait, but so will the market. And if people are divided, then the market will move in a ranging fashion.
Unfortunately, the troubles are not over the average person. Not only are most people left holding the bag at the top, they also tend to panic out and sell at market bottoms. Their capitulation selling means there is no one left to sell, so shortly after the price starts rising.
In a quest to change, the majority of society ends up changing together, moving towards similar desires and away from similar dislikes. Therefore, what the market is offering provides the exact thing that will lure the trader into the crowd.
The big returns that lure people in droves to the markets are ironically what create big returns for others and losses to the droves.
As Individuals Apart From the Crowd.
The crowd is not a crowd until most are involved.
When everyone is on board, it reverses.
While this article provides a broad context, it applies to the small scale as well. Day traders get caught in the same crowd behavior without knowing it. That rising stock they watch all morning before finally jumping in, only to have it move the other way, is the same phenomenon on a smaller scale. On a 1-minute chart when the uptrend reverses, there is no out there at that moment who wants to buy, and so the price reverses.
The ones who last enjoy it. They enjoy the challenge and the competition. Those who love trading will put in hours without evening thinking about it. Those who only trade to make a quick buck will never be able to compete with the person who loves it and immerses themself in the process of learning and improving. Only trade if you really want to. Without that passion you are at a huge disadvantage to the people who have it.

The practice is the same thing. I am honing my skill all day everyday, but it never feels like it because I just want to do it.
Algorithms, dark pools and stock manipulation. Things the average trader never sees.
Cory, I stumbled onto this page while looking for a figure as to what percent of the investing population trades Futures, for a book I am writing. No luck finding that number, but I do sometimes like reading articles that people post about making money trading. Usually I find humor in the comments of false prophets suggesting they can show you how to make money.
