My friends, i am trying to build a strategy where i expect minimum of 100% monthly profit for any size of account balance. as i want good profit so draw down can be little high than expected. though i shall try to keep it low. i am also sharing some of my trades with you. hope you will enjoy it.
To make 100% a month is hard. To make 10% a month is hard. Consistency is difficult. Nothing worthwhile having comes easy. But it doesn't mean it is complicated. Rather it is very simple and if you stay committed to it will come.
Having a target by % of earning is not realistic, because you might miss a good run because you hit your target, or you ask the market to give you something that it didn't have. I used to have that kinda target, but now I just take what the market gives me, I sleep better at night :)... Just my personal experience :)

Landing couple good shots with good leverage are easy if you follow a good trend, but landing good shots over and over in months and years to come requires a extremely good skill.
Greater reward comes with greater risk, this is the solid rule.
Let me put it this way, in general,
if you make trade decision based on 1:2 risk / reward ratio in order to profit 100%, you are also putting yourself at a -50% risk. or -30% if your system operate at a 1:3 risk / reward ratio, and so on.
It is not impossible, but it's just extremely difficult and require experience to plan your trades to avoid any pitfall.
In my option, the higher R/R trade would give you a higher chance make huge gains. In my option, on 4h to daily chart would give you a clear picture where the stops (risk) and targets (reward) are.
Now here is the problem to most the traders, they are most likely technical traders. And technical analysis (TA) just does not work well on the large time frame than short time frame (< 4H time frame) because when you trading larger time frame (> 4H time frame), it is certain fundamental analysis (FA) is involved.
In other words, you will need to get some FA sense into your trade decision. FA sometime is confusion due to all media reports different views, and your will need to swim out of this sea of information and nail your trade. This is a painful process and take time, a lot time to master.
You may ask why so many ppl trade on short term using TA and just ignore news, this would be the answer to it.

Explain what is / are my concern(s) if you think you understood my reply.
when you aim for a 100% gain per month, you would allow your pair go 1000 pips against you? consistently?
Please check monthly ATR on major currency pair on how many pips average it goes each month. monthly ATR(10) on gbpnzd (the wildest pair) is currently at 825 pips.
if you allow your position hold up for 1000 pips without closing, yeah i am concerned that your reply does not belong to this topic.

Just make 2-3% a month consistently and you can have a 6 figure salary job.
well some ppl like to try it for the maximum enjoyment.
think this way, if you grant with a chance to make more than 6 figure,
would you do it? or at least try to find out if it is possible?
that's what this topic is about =)
I don't know mate whether trading is for enjoyment....at least not for me. I am professional and its my job. The best professional fund management companies don't even dream of making that much. Keep in mind that you making 100% a month consistently means many others have to lose maybe 30% a month consistently which is equally difficult.
