Mohammadi posted: A number of novice traders start their live trading too earlier before completing their task in demo! That’s the main reason of 90% faultier statistic in Forex! I see, which traders are making right now handsome money in their live account, they all of used their demo account more than one year! So, if you want to enjoy their live trading, spend enough time in your demo!
Good advice. Test your trading plan on demo if you succeed trade live otherwise you loose money
That statistic is also false and taken out of context, I love when people throw that around, 95% of NEW traders lose money in their first year, and nearly 100% of traders blow their first account, but in context (overall) In a study done of all active accounts from US brokers, approximately 38-40% of traders make money, now while it is true the majority of DAYTRADERS lose money through the course of the year, due to staring at charts all day which causes them to make silly decisions, many many swing traders are profitable. The fact is, you have to do research behind that statistic before you through it around as an absolute truth, if you want to use forex as a full time income, it is far easier to do it as a swing trader, then a day trader, and making 8% a month isn't very hard to achieve (not every month of course, summers have lower volatility and the second half of december you should just take off from holidays) but as long as you adopt the slow and grow approach, make no more then 2 trades a day, and never have more then 4 trades running at a time (preferably no more then 2 running at a time so you are able to properly monitor and manage the trades) then you will be fine. Another statistic is among all retail traders, 60% of all trades make money, and 40% lose money, if everyone used proper risk management, everyone would make money, of course there will always be imbalance as more traders have to lose then win so that people are able to make profits, but you get my point I assume, just as if you dont
