New traders should point some realistic trading goals for themselves first and then set their risk and budget constraints. You must also decide on when and where to entry and exit as that is really important. With a plan in mind, before you actually start to trade, go through the market conditions and then start. And once a plan is created, do not waver much. Stick to that plan as much as possible.

There is no return that can be justfied as normal or abnormal. It all depends on the risk you are willing to take and the proper selection of a given strategy, to given instruments at a given time. Experienced traders can be recognized by seeing them trade when the conditions are good for their strategy and not trade when they aren't. Newbie traders on the other hand trade all the time, thinking they get screen time, but that's totally wrong approach. One thing is for sure, you can't live off your trading profits unless you have large account (100k and above) and you feel fairly convinced you can make profit every month. Even the best traders have losing months, so you have to be prepared for that, to have second source of income etc. it is not that easy like most scammers try to convince you.

New traders need to understand the importance of studying

Ok so I'm looking for some help in creating my trading plan, what should I be thinking about when putting it together? what kind of things do I need to have in it? do I even need one at all?
Any help anyone can give would be very much appreciated as I'm feeling a little overwhelmed.
Hi,

First, you must decide what type of trader you wanna be ( day trader, swing trader, etc ) then have a time of the day to trade and stick to it, trade always at the same time. Having a reason to enter a trade, where to enter and where to exit, with a loss or a profit. It's important risk and trade management.

So basically is to have an edge, to have an approach and stick to it 100%

I have seen people quote 10-20% a month as a realistic aim?


Market conditions change.
Political climates change.
Regulations change.
This list goes on.....

It is unrealistic and unreasonable to expect an ROI of 20% every month.





If it looks too good to be true, it's probably a scam! Let the buyer beware.

5% a week doesn't seem so unlikely does it?

Obviously you have never tried to trade Forex!! 5% a week is amazing results. Most pro traders would gnaw off their left arm for that
