    To paraphrase the question, so the most important aspect is considered.

    How much are you comfortable to loss in order to achieve the return you want? Return does not come free, it is a function of risk.

    Cheers,

    Exactly, risking too much even on smaller account will result into margin call/account blown (it's just a matter of time). If you don't have enough money to invest into forex then simply don't. Put that money into bank account and wait till you will get a larger sum.

    All I need 3 times more profit then my dd. If my account dd is 20% then I need more then 60% profit end of the year.

    Hey Asad,

    You ask the ultimate question.

    Check out the now defunct Turtle Forex Poll called What are your Expectations. You'll find a good debate about exactly the subject you have raised here.

    'Happy Trading!', as our old mate would have said.

    for me, i set different targets depending on the account balance

    for a big account that i depend on as an income i will be targeting 100% compounded ( for example Viper @ 2.5x ) which is nearly 6% monthly

    for an account less than 500$ , the main target will be learning and enjoying while the target will be anything between 25% and 70% monthly

    EricB,

    the simple version of your reply would be = 535% if compounded or 180% if not, those are the numbers based on your 15% monthly

    I don't understand the whole percentage thing, I don't believe I ever will either. I do know % is a difference of your account balance. So it will be different if you're not consistent on each trade and return. 10 pips $10 per traded from the 1st trade to the last trade. There is no reason not to earn 65% to 75% annually Depends on how you want to look and use it.

    I look for a return of 15% minimum each month. Is what I look forward to. April is not looking so hopeful....

    I would say 2% pr week or 8% pr month. Keeping my risk low.

    4-5% per week fair enough

    How much annual return do people want?

    I'm full time trader, I target 45% to 70% annually. Share what percentage you are looking for annually from following others.

    Thanks,
