Realistic forex returns is not what you think. A lot of people tell you that you can get high forex returns within a short span of time, which i don’t subscribe to.

I know a professional forex trader who product a forex roi of about 3-4% monthly, which is not a high roi for a lot of people, but with the power of compounding, it can work out to high profits in the long term.

A lot of people have an opinion of what is a good roi. Now a good trader is somebody who can last long term, not somebody who can generate high roi in a short span of time.

If you can generate trading returns that is higher than inflation and fixed deposit, then you are way ahead of a lot of forex traders already.

Because most forex traders generate negative returns. Whether you are a day trader or swing trader, this applies to you.

Karen Foo says:

What do you think is a good ROI for traders?

23 Moreno says:

Two important notes:

1. When your account is hundreds of millions of dollars it's alot harder to generate super high returns compared to a much smaller account.

2. Super high returns can be done with much smaller accounts but OBVIOUSLY your risk HAS to be very high to achieve that

Bonus:

Trading to grow grow your money is the very first step… You may not live off making 3,000 a year but your account grew very nicely…this should be your first goal

Trading for a living is SUPER hard and it's for ELITE traders that very few get there…

So moral of the story….learn to grow your money SAFELY FIRST

Daniel David says:

I agree with being conservative, I take 20 to 30 trades a month, risk ratio 3:4,5, with a win rate of 60% to 70%, on good months I can have a win rate of 80%. So I'm making around around 20% to 30% a month , on and good months I have had a return of 50%. I just follow my strategies and I know that my strategies statistical edge will play out. I might have a bad week of trading, but I can never have a bad month. End of the Month I'm always profitable. I have 7 strategies. And only take the high probability trades of each of them. So my risk measure is 1R:1,5R

CN Majulah says:

hi karen, do u think it is better to trade forex with bank or trading platform? and what spread pip is good for individual traders?

Ian Buell says:

First time I found your channel: This is what I, and probably many others need to hear. It's hard not to let fear and greed rule emotions, and thrown position sizing out of what is reasonable. I just moved my retirement account this morning in order to trade financial instruments for myself. I need to keep this in mind so that I DON'T BLOW IT UP! I am now a subcriber and will be watching your videos. Thank you for the perspective.

Trading Tips Hindi says:

Recover From Drawdowns says:

GREED comes with every child birth, most failed to control the demon in themselves. Rule of nature.

success godwin says:

Ryan Chapman says:

We love you Karen. Thank you for sharing your words of wisdom.

Kuziai says:

8-20% on retail account per month. Once you get bigger account like 1-5mil don't force too much do like 5-6 per months and you will be a superstar

Belinda J. Marriot says:

Talk cock only ! give me a view on euro ?

Roxana P says:

i think people make a big mistake by being impressed and setting goals with amounts of money instead of %. for example, if they want to earn $1k a month with a 1k balance, they`ll risk whatever they have to in order to reach that target. i used to be the same way but it`s not sustainable. up to 10% a month is more than decent, one day that 10% will translate into the desired $1k. i think being patient is a part of being a good trader 🙂

rogelio taruc jr says:

I leverage x300 in forex trading but only in demo….very successfull but haven't tried real account.

Winston Arroyobocol says:

10-14%….Good morning Karen.Have a nice and wonderful Sunday to you.

Kit says:

why is 1:500 leverage not good?

Danthale M says:

Sorry, just trying to understand. With a small account, we are advised that a 1% risk per trade is good risk management, targeting a 2:1 ROI. So essentially you are able to gain 2% of your account in 1 trade… Which you advice should be the target for a whole month

Ibrahim Khalil says:

So i can deposit 5k usd for generate my cigarette money every year…lol..
It means trading is only for who is millionaires already..this is not the place for become a millionaires..what am i doing man..just wasting time n money..lol
Don’t come to trading guys better fixed deposit into bank u can get around 9% back without any depression..

Maitrayan Ghosh Roy says:

So to gain 1%, I have to risk 0.5% (1:41) ?

Thong An says:

So true. I am professional stock trader. My yearly goal is 2x $spy, which is around 20-25% a year. A successful trader is one who can last long term.

John Bautista says:

Thanks I actually targetting 10% a month. I'm a swing trader.

Peter Eastman says:

Karen Foo, you are good. You are funny.
Thank you.

Joel Penafiel says:

This is correct Karen, profitable and professional traders risk at minimal exposure while calculating the returns at 1-2% per month. Lucky 5% sometimes is great. Love your videos.. Cheers…
