I've been reading this board for a few months and I've been trading for a few months. I am too much of an amateur to post because I really connot add to the body of knowledge, but there is something I finally need to know. I have a 50K account with 4:1 margin. How much should I be earning each day? From reading posts here I cannot tell what a good jouneyman trader should make. I work from home, and need a reasonable daily goal in order to perform. What is truly reasonable for someone in my circumstances. Please do not express in percent, because someone with a 25k account can earn a much higher percent than someone with a million dollar account. I'm not asking what the most brilliant traders make, but how much do the guys in those trading rooms make with this amount of capital. I keep raising my personal goal $100 day at first, now I try for $600 per day net, but I can't tell from this board what it should be, and when I should be content. I feel like I'm up against a glass ceiling, but I need to know what I should be doing. Thank you very much for your advice.
