Realistic Goals....

Maybe it's just me, but it seems OP is conspiciously absent from 'normal' participation in the conversation...

Has he taken a powder and are we just steroking ourselves now?

This all varies depending on the trader, and his style of trading. Many traders ONLY trade the first couple of hours, for example. For day trading--and by that I mean some trades will last 2 minutes, others 30 minutes, few will last more than an hour or so--most markets are "willing to give" almost every day, say, 90-95% of days there are great opportunities. It doesn't mean all of those days will be profitable, and I think a measure should be taken on a weekly basis versus a daily basis, but what I'm saying is that many traders actually do make money every day -- I see them on my broker's board, and I have made money on 11 out of 14 trading days this month, and I'm not even trading that well this month. I'd imagine that traders much better than I am are making money literally 95% of trading days.

 

Setting guidelines like 2 or 3 trades are enough, is based on your experience, and is not "right" or "wrong," just what you believe. Traders who are holding for a larger move may only take 2 trades, but others may take quite a few more, and other traders may only take 1 per week. Personally I average about 8-12 trades per day. If I take more, it's usually not a good sign, and if I take less, it usually means that I did not take full advantage of my opportunities as I saw them.

 

True Josh, but from what I understand the guy is only just beginning and those are just a set of guidelines to prevent him from overtrading. I myself make 2 to 5 % daily on my account on average. Until today I mainly focussed on ForEx but I am widening my horizon to futures as we speak.

 

Cheers

"go live and small" will only prolong the inevitable if you don't know what you are doing.

 

"start small" without understanding discipline will turn small into large (both profit and loss).

 

1. The only way of actually knowing what you do (or realise that you don't) is by going live at some point.

 

2. When you do go live with your trading plan, especially when you are not a seasoned trader, you should keep it as small as realistically possible.

 

3. Also, before you go live, you should practice, as I mentioned.

 

So your point was? Please clearify so that we can benefit.

If you have a 5K account, and average only 2% per day, you should have a million dollars in just over a year. You sure those stats are right? :D I also have 2% days, heck I have +10% days, but that's not my average. There's also the 0.1% days, and the -2% days, etc.

 

Maybe you're trading a micro forex account and getting those stats. If so, congrats. It somehow becomes different when the tick value is $10, as opposed to a mini $1 or a micro $0.10 , psychologically speaking I mean. I don't trade big size but losing $150 on a trade just trading one contract is a bit harder to swallow than losing $15 or $1.50. I can only imagine big swingers who are trading 20 lots of crude or eminis, watching their account +/- $200+ per tick. But I suppose to get to that point they have mastered the psychology of risk. Anyway I digress.

Thanks for the congrats. I did start with a $ 100.- mini account taking trades of only 0.02 contracts! I ALWAYS limit my losses to 2% of the account. I trade only three days a week (Never on fridays, I tend to find them boring). Today I trade whole contracts to give you an indication. This is all I have to say about it since it does NOT contribute to the initial question.

I'll call shenanigans on the 2-5% daily (as in each and every day). And if it doesn't add to the conversation (which you're right, it doesn't), what possessed you to make the statement in the first place?

Some things are obvious, though, I frequently ask the questions with obvious answers when I am bored too.

Yep, I understand what you're getting at. My question was/is a bit rhetorical as well. Just trying to make the point that alluding to one's own trading prowess in a post is ridiculous. Since no one is going to believe (and nor should they) any claim of performance, alluding to it in a post is pointless. But, some people apparently can't help themselves and feel it somehow will lend that much needed "credibility" to their comments. Actually, it does the exact opposite.

 

The bottom line is that it's 1) not worth making such reference to performance, 2) it adds nothing to the conversation and 3) it wreaks of desperation (imo).

2. what is your MFE to MAE ratio on each trade?

....

Tams,

Where do you get your MFE/MAE data? Does the platform you use provide it, or do you

have a spreadsheet app?

If a spreadsheet can I get the template?

Thanks.

most trading software provides it.

 

or you can calculate it manually.

 

MFE = paper profit

MAE = paper loss

 

if your MFE/MAE ratio is ONE, then you are risking $1 to make $1

you are a breakeven trader at best.

 

if your MFE/MAE is larger than ONE, then you are in good hands... you risk less than $1 to make a dollar. You will go far.

 

 

if your MFE/MAE is smaller than ONE, then you will be in trouble sooner or later... you are risking more than $1 to make a dollar. The bad luck will eventually catch up to you.

Tams, thanks.

I had a different understanding of MFA/MFE. I thought it was what a trader could do in a best case scenario. It is not necessarily what I am making now, on paper, or real. Not sure I can explain it that well, but here is an example. Let me know if I understand this correctly.

If I go long some asset at let's say a price of 100 and it goes up to 110, but I miss that best price and sell out at 105 then my win for the trade was 5 (105 -100), but the MFE (Max Favorable Excursion) for the trade was 10 (110 - 100). So what this analysis lets me do is see how much better I could be doing. Do I have this right?

Also, the software I use does not have an MFE/MAE output, so I am trying to create a spreadsheet with this calculation in it.

It would help if I could see someones data organization (column headings only) for the output so that when I create the spreadsheet I could have all the data needed. If that is something you could screen cap and include, I would appreciate it. If not maybe just tell me what platforms you know of that have this output and I will research them on my own,

Thanks.

yes, your understanding is correct. My description was too brief.

 

I should have said -- MFE = best possible paper profit while in a trade.

 

I use Brackettrader, which shows MFE and MAE numbers.

It is suggested by one experience trader and trainer......that if you want to become more successful, then do not focus on a goal that will consume you and drain you like a vampire. The majority of people have very broad desires, such as I want to make more money. Enjoy the journey and focus on the path itself of setting goals that will lead you to achieve that desire. Lose your bird’s eye focus on the end result and concentrate on creating the stepping stones you will need to have the greatest probability of achieving your trading goal.

well, i would say realistic goals are for me - small account with returns of 25-35% monthly with very small risk invloved. no more than following of 5 providers and corresponding trades. realistic goals are also to havea secured platform and brokers, registered and all (like mine for example zulutrade and aaafx, for example) that will guarantee that if smth goes wrong everything will be secured.

So your realistic goal is a small account, very small risk, but 1.25-1.75% return average per trading day... Ok. ;)

With small account, it is possible to achieve 25-35% return per month, but for limited time. I am saying "possible" coz usually traders use very high leverage on small accounts in order to gain big amounts which causes high return rate (if they r profiting). But in the end as the account gets bigger (lot size remains same), return rate will fall. If u make ur lot size bigger (proportionate to ur account), there is chance that u will loose everything within few days bcoz u r exposing urself to high risk.

Bottom line is 25% return per month, on consistent basis, is unrealistic goal.

Hi, that's my first post over here. so first things first... hello everybody, i appreciate any comment/response.

 

I'm currently setting up my goals for my day trading and would appreciate your feedback.

I paper traded daily on futures for the last six month, i used the time for educate myself..... mainly blogs, forums and books.

I opened up a live account with 10K and would really like to know if I'm shooting to high on my goals.

my first goal is 300$ a day meaning 6000$ a month until July 2012.

I plan on making trading my main and single profession so i can quit my day job.

I appreciate any comment , tip or other realistic goals that will light my journey.

 

Thank you.

 

Tomer.

 

The first goal for any trader is simply learn the skill of following a plan consistently. It does not matter if the plan makes money or loses money, the goal is to follow a plan.

 

Once you have proven to yourself and built the trust within to follow the plan, finding a set of rules that will give you an edge in the next step. Then you will find out the rest along your journey and meet them head on as they come along.

 

It does not matter what your daily profit goal is if you cannot even follow a plan.

deppends on the size of the account. mine is small but not that small (i put 5000 euros). anyhow for me works pretty find and trust me this is an undervalued expectations, as there are people that make much more money, though I tend to be of more risk aversive nature ;)

happy pipping, mate! ;)

The first goal of any new day trader or short term trader should simply to be profitable every month. Most don't come close to this. Most professionals don't either. But, most professional traders have a longer term time horizon as well when it comes to profitability.

Reasonable, not ambitious goal for average trader is 10% month profit. It takes into account such important feature as consistency of earnings.

 

The above average trader will make 8+ percent a year and have an occasional losing year. How much he will make is a function of interest rates, volatility, talent, and being in the right place at the right time. The average trader will lose year in and year out.

    • ANNUAL FORECAST FOR EURJPY (2022) EURJPY Annual Forecast – Price Is Set to Scale New Heights With a Bullish Flag Formation The annual forecast for EURJPY is for it to scale new heights, having conformed to a bullish flag formation. The bullish flag formation, an offshoot of the triangle pattern, began towards the tail end of 2020 as bulls began to exercise dominance in the market. The market began to recover from the 116.910 support level in May 2020. It pulled back when it first hit the upper border of its triangle pattern and surged through it at the second time of asking, thereby leading to the creation of the flag pattern. EURJPYJPY Significant Zones Supply Zones: 134.150, 140.650, 149.010 Demand Zones: 113.920, 116.910, 127.630 EURJPY Long Term Plan: Bullish A bearish impact is visible annually in the market, notably since 2013. Every time EURJPY makes a bullish move, the move is cut off prematurely and it always leads to a plunge back around the 113.920 demand level. This happened from 2013 to 2016, and then from 2017 to 2020. The result is a triangle-tapered market structure. By June 2020, the price hit the 116.910 demand level and began another ascent, but this time, it eventually broke the triangle pattern on 2021 New Year’s Day. The flag pole was formed as the price surged from 120.920 and was stopped abruptly at 134.150. Subsequently, EURJPY began cranking through a downward channel. This continued into the year 2022. The market forecast is for an upward liquidity flow. The upward signal of the MA Cross is still very valid. Meanwhile, the Moving Average Convergence Divergence indicator is showing dwindling bullish bars. This is due to the downward ranging in the market. Its signal lines remain above the zero level. EURJPY Medium Term Plan: Bearish In early 2022, prices are set to drop after hitting the upper border of the ranging channel. The MA Cross is directed down-sideways to show the undulating nature of the current market. The same can be said for the MACD indicator. The annual forecast is towards the end of the year 2022 into early 2023 when the bullish flag pattern is anticipated to drive the market upward towards 140.650. Source: https://learn2.trade
