If I may jump in here, I agree that you may be buying too much, too often. When I started, I used a kind of rolling UV2 to get started. The way it worked was to send money to cash account until I had about $3000, and then buying top two, then six months later, buying the then current top two with the new money. This gives fewer trades and allows the one year waiting period, and you only have to buy/sell every six months.

Of course there are many ways to approach this situation, and this is just one.

I have since migrated to using the cash king/rule makers as my core holdings instead of the ff. You could also use them, and simply buy one every couple of months until you have built up a core to work from.
