I agree with you! Really, consistency is a key point here! I see, many traders were starting their trading career with a decent monthly percentage, but now they already left Forex! So, making profit is easy here, but we have to repeat it regularly!

Exactly, long time good trading result is the main parameter! Besides, demo trading result and live trading result is not same; a good opinion indeed.

Hi guys,
So what d'you think how much percent they increase their balance regularly in a month?, is there max/min level of the percentage?😎

5-10% I reckon. Any more than that would unrealistic

Agree with that for regular trading.
In case you are using arbitrage or news trading auto-clicks and etc. this percentage might go seriously up :)

It does not matter how much the trader earns. The important thing is that it is stable. Let it be 1% per week, but for 5 years, than 30% per day, but the next day it will all lose.

But maybe also the risk will go up with these techniques?

I agree that a professional trader must have a permanent and stable growth on a real trading account. But even professionals have mistakes and there can be big drawdown. From this, no one has immunity. None trading strategy can be 100% surefire and profitable for a long time. Therefore, professionalism is to change your strategy on time and not continue to lose money.

Its interesting that everyone here believes that he's right.
Perhaps it is.
Everyone is right and wrong at the same time.
Constancy is an uncountable concept. A year of stability? Why a year?
As everyone knows, the market becomes different over the years. What worked a year might suddenly stop working.
A small drawdown? the maximum is that he observes money management. But it has nothing with professionalism. Only numbers.
The psychological factor at the current moment is not the last criterion.

I believe the pro is someone who loses and learns on falls, he is the one who can quickly adapt to the market changeability. The permanence is different for any of us, even 4 months is already a good trading.
