I offer managed account services. It took about 5 years to perfect and come up with the current trading plan that I have now.
My monthly target return is NOT double digits %.
If you want double digits % return/month, I'm sorry but I can't offer this and this is why:
It would mean to take huge risks to attain double digits returns/month. The problem is that is not sustainable over the long term. Because even if I would be very careful about how I trade, the high leverage that I have to take in order to make double digits return/month would expose me to the so called 'fat tails' in the market.
We know that the market distribution is NOT Normal/Gaussian, in fact is the opposite, it exhibit many 'fat tails' and the next fat tail can be around the corner. This is why a robust Risk Management plan is required.
And yes, that ' x%risk / trade ' rule is nonsense. To preserve capital and in the same time have profits over the long term, it is mandatory to have a very complex risk management plan. Why? A complex one(once the errors eliminated from the model) take in consideration many more variables and helps the manager(me) to know what is the risk that I have on the market. Of course, we can't put faith 100% in this mathematical model to quantify the risk, instead I also use my experience as a 'Risk trader' to know when should I trust the math models and when not.
Why did I emphasized so much about risk? Because I see a lot of 'managers' here who think that they could provide double digits(over 10%) per month and if an investors invest with them, of course they will loose the investors money because over 10%/month is NOT sustainable over the long term. I guarantee 100% that is going to fail over the long term if double digits are wanted.
