Examining institutional traders for example performance isn't indicative of what can be achieved in retail trading. Institutional traders have to achieve results with far larger capital pools than a retail trader and also have to obey certain trading restrictions.
Imagine if you will that an institutional trader is like an oil tanker, large, slow to maneuvre and difficult to stop. Retail traders are more like a speed boat and can easily zip about at will. This gives retail traders a far better chance to make higher returns.
I'm not saying it's easy to make a living from retail forex or achieve more than the best institutional traders, but it's possible. However the ones that do, generally keep quiet about how they are doing it.
