Realistic Monthly Returns for a Good Forex Trader

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


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.

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


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.

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

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
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…
