Just one advice?
Okay...carry out extensive research into the broker and service provider before putting real money into a trading account with them.
Reason for that: We don't want to nor like to see even one person coming to the FPA to post how he/she has been scammed by so-and-so who, if initial research was carried out, would have revealed that particular broker or service provider is a scam.
Free 2nd advice (kinda free one for the price of one):
What works for another might not work for you. Discover what works for you and stick to that system/strategy.
There is no real "expert Analyst" out there because one will contradict the other in their analysis. For every one "Analyst" who "advice" to "sell", another will say to "buy".
I think all the advices given by the guys up there are all great advices regardless whether you’re a beginner or intermediate trader. Without doing the above no one can succeed.
I think you need to give more details about your experience so the responses can be best suited to your specific needs. As “intermediate” means different things to different people / how do you even define intermediate...is it based on how much profit you make a year, is it based on your consistency percentage, is it based on your years of doing trading etc...
