The other day i was on a forex site looking for a new broker and I saw this option of managed accounts and i could click the link to see the past returns. I was surprised to see the returns of only about 12-17% per year. When looking at the monthly returns I see around .5 to 2% or so per month returns. Now I thought I was being somewhat conservative in my trading with my leverage , but my swings are so much higher than what these guys are making. Last month I returned about 55%. On any given day my account will go up or down as much as 10%. Is this the same with the rest of you guys? Or do you guys shoot for smaller returns like 2% per month like managed accounts?
