Well, I decided to find out by having this thread how much traders think they can make on daily bases. My thought. If you are day-trading equities. I suppose it is quite possible to make 1% a day. So, if you start of with 25,000. It is around 250 profit a day. For forex, I suppose it s possible to make 8-10 pips a day. Assuming you trade Eur/usd with 2 pip spread. With 26,666 dollars. Assuming the spread is 40:1. That would be only 20 dollars a day. Now for futures, Assuming you trade ES. Buying only 1 contract at a time. With commision being 5.00 a round turn. And profit of 12.5 a tick. Now in my view it is possible to have a return of at least 10+ ticks a day. Assuming that you trade frequntly to have that goal. You have 2 trades to make that goal. So thats profit of 125 with overhead of 10. Net profit would be 115. Now thats my believe. How do you do?
