The exact amount you make will depend on a variety of things. The amount you invest, your strategy, your amount of trading knowledge, etc. can drastically change that number. I did read about a study once where the results found that a realistic amount would be 3k per month off of a 30k deposit. Of course things would change the number but this was just to get an idea of it.

To use leverage, you need to have proper knowledge about it.
It is better to expect losses in the beginning of your trading career. You should invest only the money that you are ready to lose, otherwise, you'll have lots of psychological pressure which will inevitably lead you to the losses. So, in the beginning, your top-priority task is to preserve the money that you invest and only after accomplishing this goal can you think about gaining profits.
HIGH RISK WARNING: Foreign exchange trading carries a high level of risk that may not be suitable for all investors.
Leverage creates additional risk and loss exposure. Before you decide to trade foreign exchange, carefully consider your investment objectives, experience level, and risk tolerance.
You could lose some or all of your initial investment. Do not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. Educate yourself on the risks associated with foreign exchange trading, and seek advice from an independent financial or tax advisor if you have any questions.
