Rayner, once gain Than You for the great article. I have been looking at Risk:Reward as the means to being profitable. I will take this new information to help me reach that goal. Once again. I will withdraw it monthly if there is a profit regardingless of how much. My inner evil will grow greedy and superhero gut and ruin the account. Basically i feel i can only trade the money i am willing to lose, instead of growing it.

So i prefer to deposit more money into the trading account when i am afforded to do so. Totally agreed with the number of trades will increase the probability of profit if your winning rate is greater than losing. Eventually the losing trades will be covered by winning trades. But, sometime it will be a chance of drawdown and happen the opposite way.

Always enjoy reading your article.. This really helps for a new learner. You answer many of my questions, thank you for the sharing.

BUT heres the thing, its about consistency! If you can become consistently profitable with a small account, you can be consistent with a larger account. Ok you might not have that money lying around but dont think about that, its not important. Whatever account size you have doesnt matter.

Think consistency and nothing else. Heres my point, If you can trade consistently with a small account you can scale it up. Do for them what you do with your account and they will throw money at you and give you half of what you make them. Consistently Profitable. Rayner good post again bud. Great post Rayner! When I first learned about expectancy it was like a light switch that went off.

All of a sudden everything made sense to me, and I had much more confidence in my trading system. Thanks again for your trading insights! Hi Rayner nice to hear from you. I will make tonnes of money in Forex trading. I am not kidding. I have to make. Thanks Chandru. Without any risk…please make it clear …. And am not talking about a newbie am talking if i had abount 3 years experience to make 60 to 72 percent and if i read about 20 books and a hundred plus videos and determination patience and all am going to put effort into it.


Build your experience for a couple of years. Good Idea brother lesson first and slow movement towards a settled goal…. Plus they say.. Is being long a currency like being long a stock position… or does it expire after a period of time? Clear article. What is a reasonable expectancy though? And by reasonable I mean what do competent traders make? Aside from the obvious how much money people can expect to make it is also really important for the psychology of expectation management. I like your examples. Sometimes i laugh a little bit on those examples.

Brilliant knowledge you have.

I was in this trading for 2 years since I lost everything I invested. But I believe that I can recover all that and for that I need your help to restart what I shut down almost 2 years ago.

Great content here, you have a nice writing style, and certainly wonderful that you are so well versed in this niche. I will definitely follow your work further. I am just curious, how many traders do you do per day on average?

I understand based on your post that you are a high-frequency trader since you always emphasize massive number of traders that a trader should do to win more. And aim 2 or even 3? That was helpful. Or is that something different? Hi Rayner, good article. Especially when you mentioned that you need to combine the favorable risk-reward ration of at least and a good winning rate.

Or perhaps you are referring this article to day traders or scalpers who executes plenty of trades a day? Pls enlighten. Or maybe you can specify what trading style are you referring to. That may seem small, but losses do add up, and even a good day-trading strategy will see strings of losses. Risk is managed using a stop-loss order , which will be discussed in the Scenario sections below.

Your win rate represents the number of trades you win out a given total number of trades. Say you win 55 out of trades, your win rate is 55 percent. While it isn't required, having a win rate above 50 percent is ideal for most day traders, and 55 percent is acceptable and attainable. If a trader loses 10 pips on losing trades but makes 15 on winning trades, they are making more on the winners than they're losing on losers. Therefore, making more on winning trades is also a strategic component for which many forex day traders strive.

This is accomplished by using a stop-loss order. For this scenario, a stop-loss order is placed 5 pips away from the trade entry price, and a target is placed 8 pips away. This means that the potential reward for each trade is 1. Remember, you want winners to be bigger than losers. While trading a forex pair for two hours during an active time of day it's usually possible to make about five round turn trades round turn includes entry and exit using the above parameters. If there are 20 trading days in a month, the trader is making trades, on average, in a month.

In the U. Forex brokers often don't charge a commission, but rather increase the spread between the bid and ask , thus making it more difficult to day trade profitably. This estimate can show how much a forex day trader could make in a month by executing trades:. This may seem very high, and it is a very good return. See Refinements below to see how this return may be affected. Think about what this means for your trading. So… How much money can you make in Forex trading?

In fact, a much better alternative would be to trade part-time. March 23rd, General , Mindset 4 Comments.
