You can generate 12% in one month and then take a leave of full year.
If you can do that just do it. It's up to you. If the trader here is okay with 1%-10% per month, than just leave him doing his own thing. It's all about risk management and consistency. I've seen a lot of traders blowing up their accounts, because 10% per month wasn't enough for them (banks/brokers always win against such greedy minds). 😉
I've been out of the market for quite a while and this is my way of getting back up to speed.
says, risk management and consistency over time is key. Once I'm fully back up and running I'll be happy making 2-5% a month, rebuilding my trading capital until I can resume full time trading. There's no need to be greedy, the market will be there tomorrow, in a month, year, decades time.
