Yeah, it actually looks like you're only 6 BIs below EV (on that graph -> EV looks -$750, winnings looks -$1,050), but frankly, if your EV is down 15ish BIs over 9k hands, you probably have some major leaks and may not really be ready for the stakes you're playing. While 9k hands is a LOL sample, 15 BIs is still a LOT to be down in that time.
I agree that you should drop down to 10NL, or at least 25NL, to prove you are a winning player there first. No reason to bring ego into it - there's no shame in dropping down.
After you've logged say, 20k hands at 10NL, take a look at your graph, stats, etc, and you can start to judge if you are ready to move up. While you are grinding, I suggest you post hands here in the cash game hand analysis section (http://www.cardschat.com/f50/
), post on other people's hand threads, and talk strategy in the general cash game section.
The prevailing opinion is that online poker cash games are much harder to beat than live poker cash games, so 2/5 live is probably comparable to about 10NL online (differing opinions on this comparison, anyone??).
Good luck, keep posting, and welcome to CC!!
