Hi,

Wondering how much would be considered a return like a pro ? I mean, how much a professional trader used to have monthly . % .
Any idea ?

Well the big institutions are very happy if they make more than 10-15% per annum.

If you can beat the S&P 500 by a few basis points you are doing pretty good. On the other hand why would you want to put a benchmark on your performance. Shoot for the moon.

got your point ...thanks.
Additionally, is good to have a reference like a pro - big player. Then, you would work to achieve or be better , because, we are always learning something new daily ..

I think for pro traders stability is the question number 1. I mean stability of growth, and the second thing is risk per trade or with min drawdown. If you can show monthly return of about 5-10% and 1-3% drawdown more than a year you can call yourself a pro trader.😎

As said above this figure will vary greatly ,it's all about stable growth and capital protection,you can check the Fred economic data website.
