    Not to be skeptical !!! Just from a psychological point of view what would be your reaction if you lose all of it ?

      Well I would probably stop before I lost it all but yes would be pretty disappointed!

        Charlie !!! Over your 15 + years of trading what kind of a return is realistic for a retail trader to achieve based on your experience

    I mean on a Year to Year basis

      50% is realistic if using leverage. Could be more, could be less but that’s a solid number…

      Given my own experience, I agree with Charlie, projecting my monthly returns and after a few months. Maybe, we should add and take into account a more or less conservative money managent with 1-2% risk per trade and a risk to reward around 1,5 or 2 to 1 (on average). With a bit more risk you can obviously earn 100%+ per year too, but as amounts raise, risks do that too. For sure 50% seems fair, maybe starting with a smaller account doesn’t get your rich overnight but I am focusing on compouding year after year (hopefuly).

    What seems certain is that to make a good living from trading , you need a lot of margin capital, whatever projections you make .

      that’s right but on the other hand, I don’t understand why people expect to make a great living out of a 2000 dollars trading account. Whatever decent business you pick up you need thousands of dollars to kick off (and it’s not sure you’ll succeed) so why trading should be any different if you want a lot of money?
      I think that beginners have an inverse pyramid in their minds, they should grow slowly in the first 2-3 years and after that, if you are really good at it, you will raise your earnings exponentially making up for the slower start.
