A reasonable trader does not need to focus on the pips, the pip amount is not relevant. your main focus is total percentage of the account 'return' increased.

It has nothing to do with pips per day, week or month. Some traders are negative pips an make a profit. Some traders are are positive pips and lose their ass. Positions sizing, giving yourself time to be right and position management are key.


Pip Investor says pips are what makes us money. You must have a Positive Pip to make money. However at the end of the day, your Pip Gain can be Negative overall and still be at a profit if variable risk is applied to your positions.

This means the overall Pips do not matter in general of a successful system however a Positive Pip gain is the only way to make Money in FX with your trading. This means you must Make Pips at some point to make money. If you want to learn more, follow the link in my signature to learn how we capitalize in the FX markets with controlled risk management.


Our systems has 60+ weeks of trading resulting in 300% ROI even though some pairs are near Breakeven in Pips.

Position sizing is the answer along with money management.
The only important pips that one has to observe is the 'expectancy': if this parameter is not too low in relations to the spread, the system can be fine

If I'm down 100 pips at @ 1 lot on a pair but I'm up 60 pips @ 2 lots on another and I close both trades. Net Net I'm down pips but Im profitable.


That's true. You can also have an account that is highly positive in total pip count and be negative on ROI because of different position sizing throughout the run of the system. At the end of the day - only ROI matters.

I'd expect a solid trader to make somewhere around 200-500 pips a month, maybe more or less but that range seems reasonable to me. Pip accumulation is a great measure of system viability but you'll definitely need to figure out suitable risk parameters to optimize a strategy. After all, I've had ended one month with negative net pips but positive net cash.

Hello All,

I have around 8 years in trading experience and i make around 500 to 2000 pips a month... I think the most important is the monthly profit in percentage ;)

Have a nice day.
