Wow 10% is a lot to risk per trade, successful traders are hard to find, especially with all the nonsense on the net these days, every second guy is a “trader”, but there are plenty real traders out there that make good consistent money every month. I think people expect too much out of forex, they think they’ll be a millionaire in 3 months or a year, forex is just like any other business, there will be losses and profits during a month, but your profits should be more at the end of the month, and by doing that is simple, you have to create a stress free trading environment, you have to have a target each month, and a realistic one, like 10%, cause that means if I risk 2% per trade, I only need 5 winning trades to reach my target every month, not much at all, it’s a numbers game.
May I ask which company you lectured for? And what TF you trade? And good luck with your system testing, I hope it works out for you.
