hey Dbp..........6 months is just warming up surely ?.........even the basics of good trading that are needed to support that edge (MM , Entries , Exits , Platform & Broker choice and management, funding) will take time and practice to align and perfect .........and that's before you even start figuring out your edge ............which will take years of research, practice and ususally at least 1-2 mentors to hammer you into placeTrue. That plus cutting one's losses short and letting one's winners run, perhaps the most common flaw in unsuccessful traders. And not having a robust plan to begin with, in which case cutting one's losses short doesn't accomplish much beyond postponing the inevitable.
If one hasn't found an edge in six months to a year, he's not trying and really ought to just hang it up.
6 months is just a brief introduction to the ropes........surely ?
