BEFORE YOU START

Educate yourself.
Paper trade (Use a Demo Account) for 60 Days.
Don't put your rent money at Risk.
Don't ride an open position thinking it will continue forever.
Manage your trades but don't have a heart attack on every tick.
Stay away from people that just want your money and don't want to teach you.
Have fun.  If it is too stressful then get out.
If you are new and they won't answer your questions then move on.
Keep your account value low.
Why would anybody sell an EA that is a true cash machine?  If it worked they wouldn't need to sell.
The first 20 pips are much easier to bank than the last 20 pips.
