Forex newbie back in the swing with team trading

As a Forex newbie looking to re-engage after my first substantial trading loss, I decided to rely more heavily on my Forex trading team for the last several weeks for good trade ideas. I noticed a particularly successful team member trading some of the pairs I trade, and decided to follow her into a few trades. While these were not all wins, my performance on a few trades pulled me out of ‘the hole.’ I am enjoying team trading, I feel like I am leveraging the hard work of others.

Another means of getting back in the swing of things – reading about the basic strategies of smart, experienced traders. I have been reading a few blogs lately, to try to find someone I can follow for a while. I investigated Kathy Lien's blog, as I know she is well-respected in the Forex world. I spotted a few items on BabyPips that have been (in my newbie mind) actionable; there is always sure to be something on my USD/JPY. I found the Pick of the Day useful today, it validated my suspicion that I had better put a stop-loss on my trade - quickly.

I have settled into a comfortable trading pattern and have managed to add a little to my balance. My several months (!) experience has given me a feel for how quickly I should move on an open position, and now I am simply hungry for a real strategy that fits me for the medium term.
