No, I don't think that's very possible at all.

I do agree. A friend of mine, over 2 years ago, managed to make around 170% a month for almost a whole year (10 months, to be precise) from an intial deposit of $7.000,00, alter he made another, in total of another $5.000,00. And he said, it wasn't too risky.

Risky was, when he tried to multiply his deposit 50 times within 2 months and yes, he did not succeed that time, he still made about 2,5k %, which I still think is great.

Something that no-one mentioned to date is the effect of having all that growth has on your psyche. There was a period where I had a small account grow by 1,000% in 6 weeks. Roughly 60% of the portfolio at risk every day, but the dollar amount was so small it didn't really matter.

So of course after making 1,000%, I decided to add much more money to the account. For a while the returns were pretty good, but after having two days (luckily after reaching new equity highs), where I lost 50% of the account overnight, it pretty much wore me out. Especially since on both those days, I lost far more than my monthly salary.

Ultimately, I still managed to withdraw quite a bit from the account before I stopped trading that method, but I suspect very few people would be able to survive those type of equity swings. Also, aiming for lower risk means you lower the risk blow-up. If those to 50% losses happened on two consecutive days, I would have been down about 75% from my peak. Try handling that with a substantial account.

Now, That,s abeit of gambling with the flow of Luck...@.sim3j, This is akind of having a bigger pocket with a SL open to the limit of the account, just like in demo, it is possible to achieve, we have see how the markets move with good / bad news, up and down and swing around at the fibo level monthly charts, it isn't impossible to the above. Playing poker is about the same, when money is unlimited......You call :All In:

Just a thought...

Yeah, I would also like to see him trade the account from $6,000 to $360,000. It becomes a totally different game then. twist

One of my early demo accounts made $80,000 overnight. Oddly, I have never been able to repeat this with my real account. In fact, I blew my first real account, and my second, and my thrid, before the MONEY MANAGEMENT message got through...capital preservation is the number one priority!

Now it's obvious. If I build my account to $500,000 and generate 5% income each month, I'm happy! Now, how to get $500,000 in my account...
