    I have been trading for a few years now. Had some success in the last 1 year of trading. I trade a Asia markets with a system that can make 100% return and I have achieve that. However as Asia market liquidity is a big problem (especially for the market I trade) I will be growing too big very soon.

    I have been looking at other markets Eurex Dax is what I came up with. Please see attached results. It seem too good to be true. The comm for me is Eur 14 for a round turn

    Result did not include Commission and Slippage
    Net profit = $291K (without comm and slippage)
    Net Profit = $275K (with a Eur 25 for comm and slippage)
    Net profit = $260K (with a Eur 50 for comm and slippage)

    Now I shouldn't be getting too much of a slippage as I uses a stop for my entry and exit.

    I did it with Asia market and achieve a 100% return in a year. I wonder can I do it with Eurex Dax?

    I am looking at Eur 25K for 1 lot of Dax. Looking at the historical the worst year return a Eur 27K. (which is slightly more than 100%)

    Currently I am doing forward testing for the next 6 - 9 months and see the result before going full force in it.

    Comments is welcome and if possible someone can point out some flaws on the system.
  2. 14 Euro per round turn is too much; find a new broker. :eek:
  3. No problem benysl, as long as you know what you're doing.

    Be good,
