I tried a few deferent strategies when I buy my shares in the demo account. Sometimes I buy when shares just start going up and some times I waited for the shares to have had a good run going up. But every time the moment I buy a share the price goes down and down and down. I do understand the this would happen sometime but is it really possible to happen every single time when I buy a share? I even thought that  maybe the system was designed to do that or I am doing something very wrong. Can anyone maybe give me some tips or advice about this?

It odd you should say that entry is not an issue for me its when to get out. I tend to use a 50 EMA 200 EMA cross. Though I differ some times I use a MACD cross.  If you think about it logically its gonna go up or down so all you need is a small reason to pick one side. To me the hardest thing is when to take profits or get out.

From the indicator Tab choose Exponential Moving Average 50 and 200 and I coloured 50 blue and 200 black when 50 crosses and goes down Sell (go Short) and when crosses and goes up Buy (go long).

 

In the example below I would short but between me and you I used to use lot of indicators to confirm I finding when price goes below 200 or 50 EMA stays there a while and when above vice versa so use this as this generates more signals.

 

I must confess I use on commodities and indices mostly which have high volume. To be honest I made bulk my cash buy and holding but trading for 2 years I only go on times of high volatility. But if can be of any help let me know.

Well, first of all, it is not worth investing the last money if you do not have savings and a deposit in the bank. If a bank goes bankrupt, the state will return the money to depositors, but there is no such insurance on the stock exchange, you can lose everything. Moreover, the fall in the value of securities occurs much more often than bank failures. You can read about effective strategies for investing in stocks at https://daytradereview.com/seeking-alpha-review/, but I would advise you to start with the simplest strategy - buy securities, and sell them at a higher price after a certain time. It is worth noting that it is not luck that plays a key role here, but how well you analyze the market.
