The question remains: Can anybody show a VERIFIED LIVE account on MyFxBook with at least 5% average monthly profit for AT LEAST 2 YEARS and with less than 25% max. DD using a non-Martingale strategy...?


I have just over 1 year, on my account, Slightly less then 5% a month but i have been slightly inactive through a number of months.

I think to turn $2000 from $5000 is maybe possible once, perhaps even twice but impossible to sustain. This is just gambling, you may have more luck at the roulette tables.

 If you are trading then surely what you are looking for is a sustainable return with low managed risk. Its no good if you make 1 million in 1 year then lose it the next.

Money Management is critical, keeping position size small, or you will surely die.

be realistic, the best hedge fund make 30% per year, and the best sites like Zulutrade Auto Trading, just 100 pips per week for very good (around 5000 pips in 1 year), 6 months for very good, it's not even figure dozen people ....... and they are for the most part on a mini lot, or $ 300 for followers, with $ 5,000, you will just be with a lot, and you risk 40 pips per trade or $ 400 each time, after 12 unsuccessful trades, you've blown your account ... I say that with $ 5000, you can expect to earn $ 400 per month to $ 500, or 100 pips a week with a mini lot, 1pip, $ 1 .. 10% per month, it will be huge...

Well said by Mr. Funcky35! In my opinion 10% per month could be a max. goal of any SAFE strategy.

Here is an example of an average 10% per month and SAFE strategy: https://www.myfxbook.com/members/FxMasterGuru/morningstar-i/407015

FX Master Guru,
Is that a live account? What position size do you use and what's your trading style? This is good.

Thanks, Chisha! This EA's algorithm incorporates the main teachings of the famous trading textbooks, so this live forward test is a live test of the teachings of the core trading textbook themselves. So far the Authors of the books were right...

1. Yes, it is a live account with Pepperstone Edge Razor.
2. The positions are self adjusting according to the actual balance. The current risk setting is 0.1 lots per 1000 USD which is OK for a small, medium size account. For a large account I would use 0.07 lots per 1000 USD, which are the settings of my other (recently started) strategy, MorningStar II.

I would argue that it's possible, but very very hard.

I'm working with a trader that is doing a similar thing to what you have asked. I'm actually hoping to recruit them to my trading room and signal service site.

Check out this statement if hers that I uploaded.

She is a manual trader and is amazingly consistent.

Fingers crossed I can get her on board!

No manual trading can compete with automated trading by intelligent robots. Manual trading is influenced by human emotions, whereas robots have no emotions and can take a 'calculated decision' at any moment.
