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!
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.
