    Hi all,

    I've been trading for 4 years and finally believe I've come together with a methodology that fits me.

    I've been day trading FX full time during the last 4 months and I believe I've achieved decent results.

    My question to the more experienced traders here:

    1.-What kind of metrics would I need to present to "show off" my track record to a firm with the intention of being hired to trade for them?

    I've traded daily and have volume traded, obvioulsy P&L, %... etc. I've been withdrawing profit to help support my living, too. How do you account for that?

    2.-What would be considered average/good results in terms of money, %, leverage used..etc. I've read a lot about sharpe ratio but not sure how to determine it for FX trading and leverage...

    Thanks for your input
