Actually how much we can earn our trading it depends on the markets movements. It’s not countable at all by our trading accounts. I was profitable when I started my live trading with 1K. but I did huge loss when I increased my balance in 2.5K but there was same strategies with same money management.
I’m probably averaging around 2% a month which doesn’t seem like much but with compounding and the amount of capital I managed to start with. I also have a riskier account that i’m hitting around 4-5% but with much less capital. Mostly use the high risk to hone my skills. I’m not even doing the overall % math with both accounts but more than a mutual fund return :)
my target is try to manage money accurately, i think try to manage your money when trading in practical , only money management can change your trading life , otherwise no way to survive in here with successfully.
For keeping survive in this volatile trading place confident is needed but overconfident is will harmful , sometimes because overconfident then leading trader greedy in trades, and dare to take risk in trading which actually the market very dynamic and not always after trade open trades then will directly get profit.

I got used to think that the main objective for a newbie in trading is 5% of profit per month. Moreover, it's better to learn how to trade with minmum losses and don't pay attention to the statistics of profits on initial stages, because if you wil concentrate on profits, you will be very disappointed by losses. It affects your mental health. In order to start making profits and run statistics, you have to be prepared for losses and take them for granted. However, every trader decides y himself how to behave in such situations. Some prefer other options.
