Learn and understand the risk,
Develope a trading plan,
Gain the discipline to stick to your plan,
Paper trade, to learn your trading platform,
Paper trade, to understand your market,
Paper trade, to make dicisions making second nature,
Cash is a valid position, so Paper trade.
Keep positions small, to limit risk,
Admit when the market moves against you, adjust or exit.
If you select a stock or index, learn how it trades, like a Market Maker.
I'm sure others in this form can add much more to this list.
