I'm an FX prop trader. Back in 2015 when I started my journey, I recall my floor manager's words after I made my first $2.5k in one week with 3x leverage on a $50k acc. He said, 'Lets see how you do over 12 months...can you be consistent.'
My floor manager's words still resonate in my head even to this day. FX trading at a professional level is all about the long game, and long term consistency. Few have the patience for the long game, as humans we need our quick fix, just like a gambler or junkie. And these individuals make terrible traders. Sadly over 90% of traders are just that.
You are doing well if you hold onto any gains made each month. Your downfall is focusing on targets, when in fact you should be focusing on your trading performance.
Everyone shines, they just need the right lighting
