just don't take any leverage and trade stocks. if you trade futures/commodities, obviously you will need leverage. but trade stocks without leverage. you don't have to make a million in one trade. most traders are right only 40% of the time and still make a living out of it. so, if you have 5 margin calls, than it can wipe you out. it not always about the home-run. it's about making tiny bets on many things, cutting loses, and maximizing profits. it is easy to say but hard to do. only studying, practice, and little bit of carefulness will help you.
Your volume on GOPRO was lower than today..and your bearish volume has been decreasing. This is a bullish sign. SPY was a fake break down.... It is going up tomorrow. Look at the low percentage of volume on SPY.
