What do you hope to actually find out with this thread – whether there are successful traders out there, and if so, how successful? As in any walk of life, there are those who succeed, and those that don’t. What others are achieving or not, has absolutely no bearing on what you personally can achieve, so rather than ask whether other traders are able to consistently achieve a percentage return per month, ask yourself whether you’ve got what it takes to be a successful trader, and if the answer is yes, then forget the other guy and concentrate on your own horizons. If you somehow doubt that anyone really makes money as a forex trader, then you may as well quit today. Merry Christmas.
