As I am going on demo, I'll be nearly a +1000% a year.

Practice makes a man perfect.

 So would that entail only using a very small portion of your account? It appears that is what 95% of the people in forex do, and they still suffer a margin call. I would believe the actual apporach is all wrong. Instead of being able to withstand any move, you should be prepared to follow the actual short term move.

I agree that traders even when using a small portion of their account they suffer margin calls. Why is the question? The main reason is they do not lock in profit on the upside and they do not minimize the draw down. Experienced traders can take on a higher risk as they know the ins and outs of the market. New traders entering should go for a more controlled risk management.
Take a look at this demo account which I am using to test different RMM strategies. The first half part of the chart there is definitely higher risk taken and the rewards are bigger. The second part is extremely controlled and the rewards are not as profitable but still enough to be satisfied with a steady profit curve upwards.

Just remember, demos seem to ALWAYS be higher win ratios than real life.

Any return % is possible in fx if you are knowledgeable enough. But to sustain very high performance consistently over long duration of time , say , a couple of years then I feel is near impossible. My interaction with many relationship managers, managing other people's funds in MNCs brought me to this conclusion.They aim for returns between 20%-50% every year.Lucky to get 100%+ in any year. I initially targeted 300% return annually but after a year found it to be very risky and difficult target. I considered my trading to be a last opportunity to trade and thereafter reduced risk and I am targeting 100% annually. So far I have been quite successful with this 100% target and aim to achieve this every year without fail. Compounding is the tool I will use.
Lets see how far I can go with this.

Higher profit, means higher risk. I agree with 111ForexGuru, 100% is posible and real and my target too. Join in, if you are interested.
Don't waste your time with demo accounts, because they truly get better results and the user is more likely to use higher position's volume, because he won't loose real money.

1000% would be very very risky.

For me, I am happy to get ~200% per year only by EA.

Stable 20% per month without manual intervention...

Actually more than 1000% is possible per year albeit at a higher risk.
