I don't understand why anybody bothers with martingale systems....they don't work unless you have infinite funds. neutral

Well, it just works that way. But still we can do it on winning streaks too. Lets say once month comes that massive 6th and 7th flip time and you just take that massive profit, and that problably wipe out all thoes bad loses what was acumalating whole month and you get some big bucks left. Anyways there is massive work with statistics before, but still, nice to fantasize about this. :)

50 - 200 pips. Assuming each trade is the same number of units.

This is a very tricky question, well for me, i dont really have pips i make a month, instead i base on percentage factor, like making at least 50%-150% a month on my personal account, and 40%- 80% or more on my pamm account

that's a very good question as it shows the trade perfrmance. how can you say if you're doing good or not ( like in having and following a good trading system ) if you only make 5 pips a trade ? that's true + 5pips with 1 or 2 volumes put some money on your account but you're on a high risk side. A good trader will make 40pips with lower volumes (let's say 0.2 ) with considerable lower risk.

Gotta go with Mechael Van. It is all about percentage. Percentage gain is all that matters. Pips and lot size are just the variables that equate to the bottom line. 10% gain a month would be a stellar return in anybody's portfolio.

Also, one must look at the draw down %. In my opinion the best traders/trading systems have low draw down % first and foremost, with consistent positive % gains.

It's not important how much pip u won , the importance is how much profit percentage u made ?

I think it is a reasonable approach, I think that making 50 pips to 100 pips is a feat if you are able to do so consistently, ie often be positive, then must multipler by number of contracts, 0.10, 1, 10, 100, 1000, 10 lots from 10 x50 x 10 pips or $ 5000 dollars a week .. this is the approach that should, of course you have tight spreads and ECN high quality ...

above 50 pips. frequent trading and small profit targets are the best way to lose the entire account in a short period of time.
