If one can make 15 % /month on a $1000 investment, can he make 15% if he/she is trading with a investment of $100000?

He'd be stupid to. And quite frankly to inexperienced to even risk it if is suggested by him.

It's all about the risk. No one really minds losing $1k, hell of a lot of people would mind losing $100k.

How much do you need to live? 15% on 1k can't feed you, 5% on a $100k very much can. So you don't risk it for 15% the difference is sitting at home or losing all you're savings and starting over.

Take the $1k and let him trade it till it's a billion or he wipes out. When it's doubled take out the first $1k and from there on it's risk free till eternity.

$100k you put very serious limits on what can be and can't be risked. Unless it's a really small percentage of your NET worth.

i suposed u answers if orders entries and exits are the same with a mini account than a big or regular account, well it depends of ratio of profit looses , but if that ratio is tiny yeah can be differences. Also with same brokers, same money accounts, same automated strategies there differences sometimes...

For a good EA, there is no problem with money , it is extremely humans problem.
15% are always 15% , regardless on how much.
It is other question, that 15% per month is too much to be safe.
For my EA 5% per month sounds normal.

You assume that he wouldn't use stop loss?

15 % / month doesn't seem too much to me.
With 100k account my monthly goal would be around 50%. If your strategy and your skills allow you to reach this goal, why shouldn't you go for it?
Even if 5% is enough for you to live from, why not make more if you can and accumulate some wealth?

Even if you trade aggressively but
* you identify and trade only on signals with high winning probability (more than 70% of your trades are wins)
* you strictly limit your losses
* you successfully try to make more profit with winning trades than you make losses (proper R/R ratio)
... hardly anything could go wrong IMHO :)

My answer is : yes
because it is percentage of risk used according to different factors considered by the trader, regardless the capital of the account. But I consider the balance 100000 K should make at least 25 % to 45 % a month with safe strategy. In other words 15 % a month from balance of 100000 K, you can make it easily .
Cheers

my answer is no.
1000usd and 100000usd are different amount and different risk. to trade 1000usd is easy.... but to trade 100000usd... our feeling is not same as 1000usd...

I disagree with you 100 %
I do not mean you are wrong , or you are not good trader, not at all
I believe it is your view according to your life experience.

My answer again is yes yes yessssssssssssssss
very simple,
It is from my life experience,
I personally do this for more the 9 years , I trade on MAM master account, under this master account, their are several accounts for several clients, the smallest account balance is usd 1,100.00 and the biggest account balance is usd 137,000.00 and their are some different accounts in between with different balances of course.
Total balance of the master account is above usd 340,000.00
When I place a trade on the master account for example with lot 15.00 (standard lot ) the master account itself distributes the risk on every sub account according to the balance of each sub account.
The risk of the each trade is pre set to 2 % of any account balance
So, when I make profit from any trade 2 % of the trade, it is distributed automatically to 2 % of every sub account balance.
End of the month, the profit is equal to all accounts according to every balance in the account.
When the profit in the master account end of the month is 19 %
It means by end of the month, the profit of every sub account is 19 % a month
It means the account balance of usd 1,100.00 made profit of 19 % this month.
And also the account balance of usd 137,000.00 made the same percentage of 19 % a month.
I do this for more than 9 years with no problem
I hope this clear now
Wish all the best to all traders
