I think you are having trouble accepting your losses are caused by your own mistakes or by the action of your counterparty. So you assign the blame to an arbitrary 'entity'. Until you find the true source of your loss, you are not going to make it.
My losses are discussing my valuable profitable strategies and time on you.

That's true, but what's the hurry, the market is going to be here tomorrow, next month and next year, (unless a global disaster strikes at which point I one will care anymore about money...)

My number 1 trading rule: EDUCATE YOURSELF!

Before you trade even single penny on the stock market, please spend the time and educate yourself by back testing different trading strategies and ideas - go to eBay and search for "historical stock market data", you can buy 20 years of data for less than $100 - that's all you need to start.
