  1. As a trader, per year, what is your goal to make (percentage-wise)?

    10%? 20%? 50%?

    100%? More than 100%?

    How much should a trader expect to earn a year %-wise?

    It depends on many things. What are your goals? Growth, stability etc. What is your risk tollerance? Can you stomach a 20% drawdown or would that make you want to jump off a bridge. Would you be ok with a 10% drawdown? Which ever of these two, maybe its less maybe its more...whatever, will effect your ultimate return.
