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.
