Like in anything it helps to have realistic goals. For those that have goals set: 1) Do you have a daily or weekly goal in terms of money earned or percentage gained? 2) Is it based on percentage or a dollar amount? 3) If you don't mind, how much capital are you working with, and if it's leveraged, how much? 4) How often do you hit your goals? To be fair, I'll throw out my thoughts... I'm shooting for 1% per day of my total capital. If I don't feel the vibe, I sit on the sidelines so there's a lot of days where I have zero trades. On days I do trade I'm somewhere in the .5 - 2% range. I feel very fortunate the current market fits my trading style. I'm waiting for the wheels to fall off. Thanks.
