SP500 returns are a little over 10% annually... over its entire history. It went 50% up and 50% down YoY and that is considered one of the safest long term investments. And then there is forex trading, one of the riskiest things in the world of financials. So maybe 20% a month is a possiblity, but a very remote one. Reality is we all have positive months and negative months. It swings so wildly that a get rich quick proposition is far more likely than a consistency of 20% per month over a long period of time.

I've managed to earn even more, but then, of course there were deposits drawdowns, and I'm not surprised with such roller-coasters because I know where I was stuck at.

If you mean consistent 20% growth every month, then you must work hard and be convinced of the profitability of your strategy on 100%. But, strategies tend to get obsolete, as market swiftly changes and that is why revising the strategy regularly is the best thing to maintain its results.

To answer your question, yes 20% profit every month is possible. However, that is an ambitious target. While it is possible, it's important to understand the context and risks involved, especially when it comes to forex trading. Achieving such a high return consistently requires a deep understanding of the markets, a well-thought-out trading strategy, and exceptional risk management skills.

Please take note that aiming for high returns can pose significant risks. You need to recognise that there's a possibility to incur substantial losses should the market trade sideways.

The most consistent trader alive that I 'know' is Jim Simons, he makes "only" 66% **per YEAR.**

20% per month would be 791% per year!

It is not difficult to make absurd profits for a short period of time, but we must worry about permanent consistency. It's impossible to stay consistent earning something like >=10% per month

It is possible and you don't need luck for it, if you have got a good edge and your money management is on point.

So because you ask the question in the rookie section, I assume you are a rookie.

Is it possible for you now? Probably not..

Is it possible in the future? Sure, if you put in the work and listen to the right people.

Best of luck to you all.

if I invest 1000 usd and make 10% yield every month with compounding what will be balance after 10 year

ChatGPT

To calculate the balance after 10 years with a monthly compounded yield of 10%, we can use the formula for compound interest:

A=P(1+rn)ntA = P \left(1 + \frac{r}{n}\right)^{nt}A=P(1+nr)nt

Where:

- AAA is the amount of money accumulated after nnn years, including interest.
- PPP is the principal amount (the initial amount of money, which is $1000 in this case).
- rrr is the annual interest rate (which is 10% per month, or 1.2 annually).
- nnn is the number of times that interest is compounded per year (12 times, since it's compounded monthly).
- ttt is the number of years the money is invested (10 years).

Plugging in the values:

- P=1000P = 1000P=1000
- r=1.2r = 1.2r=1.2 (since 10% per month is equivalent to 120% annually)
- n=12n = 12n=12
- t=10t = 10t=10

The formula becomes:

A=1000(1+1.212)12×10A = 1000 \left(1 + \frac{1.2}{12}\right)^{12 \times 10}A=1000(1+121.2)12×10

Let's calculate this step by step.

After 10 years, with a monthly compounded yield of 10%, the balance would be approximately $92,709,068.82.

can you say... its corect 92 mil ?

ChatGPT

Yes, the calculation is correct. With an initial investment of $1,000 and a monthly compounded yield of 10%, the balance after 10 years would indeed be approximately $92.7 million.

Tel me please theare traders that claim that they made even more than 10 % mountlhy. But is any probability that a trader can reach a long period strike with such a results?

ChatGPT

Achieving a consistent 10% monthly return over a long period is exceptionally difficult and highly improbable. Here are several reasons why:

Mathematical Extrapolation

**Exponential Growth**: As illustrated, a 10% monthly yield compounded over 10 years results in astronomical growth. Consistently achieving such high returns is extremely rare and would place an individual or fund's returns far beyond typical market benchmarks.

Market Realities

**Market Volatility**: Financial markets are inherently volatile and unpredictable. Even the most skilled traders experience losses.**Sustainable Strategies**: Many trading strategies that generate high returns are often high-risk. Such strategies can yield significant short-term gains but are unsustainable over long periods due to inherent risks.

Historical Evidence

**Historical Benchmarks**: Historically, the most successful investors, such as Warren Buffett, have achieved annual returns of around 20-30%, which translates to less than 2% monthly on average.**Hedge Fund Returns**: Top-performing hedge funds rarely achieve sustained monthly returns of 10%. Most aim for annual returns in the range of 10-20%.

Practical Considerations

**Capital Size**: Managing larger sums of money becomes increasingly difficult. Liquidity issues and market impact can hinder the ability to achieve high percentage returns.**Regulatory and Operational Risks**: As funds grow, regulatory scrutiny and operational complexities increase, which can impact performance.

Psychological and Behavioral Factors

**Consistency and Discipline**: Maintaining the discipline required for such high returns is challenging. Emotional and psychological factors often lead to inconsistent decision-making.

Survivorship Bias

**Selective Reporting**: Success stories often receive more attention, while numerous failures go unreported. This bias can create the illusion that high returns are more common than they are.

In summary, while some traders may claim to achieve more than 10% monthly returns, doing so consistently over a long period is highly improbable. High returns over short periods are possible, but sustaining them without significant risk or loss is extremely rare.
