Im not really all thet much of a newbie...I just trade what works for me. I dont want anyone else to follow my suggestions without their own DD. I have been averaging 8% or so per month the last few months. This is good for me; however, I know people that make that in a day if not more. After being LTBH and loosing much of my portfolio, I am very happy with 5% + a month...if it just wasnt for those trades that go the wrong way (LOL).

Capital preservation via stops was the most valuable lesson I have learned so far in my investing career.
