No one will gain or profit always, there's always the ups and downs. And all you have is yourself to learn from the experience. Let's take for example my case, I chose Trade Copier, and started with the trial or demo account. For a week, I like what I tried. So from demo I have a Live account. And as of this writing I have more than a 100 slave accounts. It copies trade signals in 1 second. And I get to manage my accounts in real-time.
So think of a platform that you think will better benefit you. Understand the basics, learn from your experience and then get good things coming. Happy trading!
Start off with a demo account, and when you have traded it successfully over a period of time, switch to live trading. However, it is very important that you start small, even if you have plenty of capital. There's a big difference, psychologically, when you start trading with real money, even small amounts.
Personally, I don't believe in signal providers. I think it is far better to learn to trade yourself so you are not dependant on others.
