It's hard to give advice to new traders when you don't know what level of trading experience and trading knowledge they have. But I can tell you what worked or me 7 years ago.
Many new traders tend to trade the smaller time frames like 1 to 15 minutes, because that's where all the 'excitement' is. Problem is, if you don't know what you're doing trading these time-frames you usually try and take profits quickly and sit with losing trades far too long. That's what I struggled with in the beginning. Take profits way too soon and not get out of loosing trades quick enough.
Eventually I learned that I need to look for trade setups on the higher time-frames. 30 mins if I trade intra-day and 4-hour or daily for swing trading. Best advice, based on personal experience, is to look for trade setups in the direction of the longer time-frame trend (Daily and up) on the 1-hour or 4-hour charts, and look for these setups near key Daily support/resistance levels.
Patience is key on a micro account. Choose your trade setups carefully. Don't force trades.
Keep it simple, be disciplined, get rich slowly and above all protect your equity!
