I made 20705.3 pips on my Caesar account.
That is what count, single trade even though it might be impressive does mean nothing as in context with other trades it might even be loss when you sum it up.
Imagine opening 2 trades with opposite direction at the same time, you got very big winner with lot of pips which you can post here,
but as a sum of both trades you will face the loss - if you close them both at the same time,
it might be possible to close both with profit but that would reuqire closing them at different times and not much market move,


what you said is absolutely right, but the trader who started this thread had a specific question. It's like in sports, f.e. tennis - you may play on the ATP tour, getting to semi-finals many times and winning a lot of money, but never reaching or winning in major finals like in the Opens... Trend traders do discuss/show their longest trades in pips - because for them one of the most important qualities is to run a trade from start to end! Thus the question asked in the beginning of the thread is a rightful one... Scalpers may not appreciate this topic but they should not dismiss it.

I like your Caesar trading, a good number of pips - it would correspond to a bloody long trend (2-3 years) 😄...


Yeah it is competition who has bigger gun... Than I am not winner :)

1. Achievements of other traders ought to be admired;
2. Take the challenge and share your best trend trade with everyone!
Trading is not only a competition against others: it is a competition to improve oneself too.

Well said! I don't care whether I am first or last cos in the end as vtorg said the amount of $ in your wallet is the king... But to get to a good level one need to learn, and learning from the best is the best.... Nobody laughs at W Buffett for holding Coca-Cola for 73 years 😂, the Renaissance Tech hedge fund is also admired: huge 1-2 pip leveraged trades... we have to learn from them. It's like in sports running: there are sprinters and long distance runners - all good, none bad. In trading: there are scalpers and trend traders: all good, none bad... In this thread a trader asked trend traders to show their results/records - I think it's interesting and quite rare, it prompted me to start a Fundamental Analysis discussion elsewhere, which is paramount thing for trend traders. But this thread is not active because mostly in RETAIL forex it's all about scalping with EAs/cbots - great thing, no doubt, and I never met a trend trader who was critical to scalping 😎

Some big pip targets here but pips it a totally meaning less measure for profit. $$$$ and %%%% are what really matter

I also believe that % is the most important thing to pay attention to

Take care of your pips, and the profits will take care of themselves! 😎

You are right.

The highest pip amounts you'll get with trading stocks and commodities and maybe some exotic forex pairs aswell. But be aware of the risk when trading such things using a high account leverage.

patience is the key

What percentage you gain is important rather than how much you earn. Trader should have a target like 10% monthly gain.
