answer is shocking 1 pip.if you knew you could 100 percent make 1 pip;you would put 100 lots on it.or more with different brokers.it is like fishing;you could catch 1 blue fin tuna and get over $730;000 at japan fish market.just 1 fish a year.the point is too many traders are getting lots of pips; profit wise not so.after trading many years i have decided less is more.less trades but more certain of trades with higher lots.what do you think.?
I think any profit in forex is good. 100 pips per month is very good and 300 pips is outstanding. Most people make money for a short period and give all back. So I think 1200 pips a year is very good and 3600 pips outstanding. Do it for 5 years and you know you have an excellent trading system.
100 pips a week mindset if you are a intraday trader or even swing trader will get rid of your greed. It is the cure to greed as per former central bank of london trader mentor. Listen to that, and you will be fine.
Um, I've never measured my profit with such a measure. It seemed to me that most traders are focused on the percentage of profit from the current capital, and I also tried to estimate my statistics in this way, perhaps it is worth trying your approach.
I have also recently seen such an approach and it turned out to be quite difficult, though really accurate. But keeping a record after each trade, if you work with short-term positions, is a real job that requires extra time.
You just need to be consistent with profit. Your risk and reward could be anything. You are here to doing business not gambling. What about spread, margin, lot size. You need to be realistic with your target according your strategy and skills.
