Lets collect some stats here - with the aim that it will help everyone benchmark their performance against the best and to see where they fall on the bell curve. Irrespective of your account size/prop leverage available to you, please report how many points do you make on average per year in following categories: 1) Main Futures viz ES/NQ/YM, CL, ZB/ZN, GC/SI, Ags etc. 2) FX: All fx pairs taken together 3) Stocks: All stocks together I will do a classification for 3 categories viz: futures, fx and stocks separately. Within futures, if I get sufficient data, I will do a future specific data analysis and post the results here on the forum for everyone's benefit. For example, if we get 50 responses, I will post a final data analysis with distribution curves (bell curves) showing average points gained per annum for each category and within futures for different futures contract. Please also mention for how long you have been trading profitably. If data allows, I will post the results like how many points a 1yr profitable trader makes vs a 5 yr profitable traders. I will start myself - My full time trading experience for a living is 6 months. I mostly trade FX. My #1 system made 200 pips over last 6 months. I run 25 leverage on this system, so that makes for 50% return in 6 months, with 10% drawdown. In my account, alongwith above system, I trade on discretionary basis also, and net result from both systematic+discretionary on fx was around 730 pips over last 6 months, at an average leverage of 20. I lost 150 points in ES over the last 6 months. Thanks every one!
