Most likely, it is so easy not to understand it.

The realistic number is 10% per year .

Often , the best trade is no trade at all

trading forex i like to think expectations are higher.a lot of us retirement funds making 5-10 % on average.with our
 life savings.sharemarket returns 10 15 % year average on index of all equal shares.there are traders here than can do that in few trades.i told someone i was looking between 500-1000 % as a target.only because i was using small accounts and could afford to lose.that was after backtesting some signal providers once and was getting around 30;000 % per year.on their combined picks all with 99% accuracy.of course when i decided to follow with real money i lost because their trades went worse.if you want a return of 20% or less .invest in index funds.with amount of hours learning this art or science ;i think 100% return should be goal per year.

It depends on a trader's strategy and experience in forex trading.

There must, of course, be a correct idea of such a direction.

I am very happy with 30-50% per year with a low-risk approach, that's the aim anyway!... Anything over is a BONUS!...Also, hedge funds are happy with anything over 20% per year.....

But these are all projections, it really depends on what the market gives you & How much you are prepared to risk, also market condition changes all the time so you need to evolve with the market.

There's no 'realistic return'. I know a trader that make 80-90% per year (but he has a lot of capital and a team of analysts). Also that's not stable number, as I know he has even loss-making periods. And I know traders that make 20-30% per year. That all depends on your skills, strategy and many other things. The okay ROI per month is 2-5%. The good is 7-10%. Everything that's higher is very very good.

Agree totally - no such thing as a 'realistic return', am consistently producing 5 to 10% on account balance daily. All depends on hours spent trading. My next question is it possible to automate and produce similar results consistently with less stress and effort? 10 - 29% monthly is very doable. Of course time will always be the ultimate judge of any trading methodology.
