I'm temped to try this but I want to use a Demo account, or wouldn't that be appropriate?
You are completely free to try and trade $200.00 into $100,000.00
Personally if it were me, I'd probably use a real account though.
After all, if I was going to put all that time and effort into doing it, I'd want to actually keep the profits.
But again, it's just my own personal opinion.
I've turned $250.00 into $2500.00 with 1:50 leverage in a few days before, but I was fortunate at the time to hit a strong running trend and was able to stack my tickets with increasing unit sizes into the basket until my series of trades closed out.
I used a special purpose built bot that was designed with a very specific chart setup and the money management was basically nonexistent.
The trade rules were basically 'Trade one direction only as indicated by the long term trends, keep trading into the trend no matter what regardless of the what the short term trend is doing, and make $2500 or blow out the account trying', which of course is absolutely NOT a smart way to trade.
This was just an experiment for myself to see if it 'COULD' be done, not to say it 'SHOULD' be done. OK?
It's a bad idea to think it's a good idea to trade this way. A REALLY bad idea.
What I'm saying here is that, while it IS possible to gain quick profits, it isn't guaranteed that you can do it, and unless you are using some sort of automation to do it, you probably aren't going to be able to do it very quickly, and the account in question will probably get blown out because of over trading.
Now if you are talking about turning $200 into $100,000 with no time limit, then most certainly DO THAT.
Perhaps though, you might want to lower the unrealistic expectation levels, and go for something more reasonable like $200.00 into $400, then $400 into $800, etc etc etc.
Professional traders understand that real success in trading comes from using solid money management and discipline over ones emotions.
Those are two of the most important things when it comes to trading in my opinion.
Money management will protect your investment capital by minimizing your risk.
Discipline will protect your ability to trade without emotional impact.
You'll notice I didn't mention strategy right?
You can use any strategy you want, as long as you understand the strategy well enough to make a consistent profit over a long period of time with minimal risk.
But money management and discipline should be the highest priority, because those two items will PROTECT the profits that the strategy generates.
Again, all of this is just my opinion.
