Good enough (would cover the interest in most countries should the money be borrowed from a bank and definately seems doable.
Moderate, but anyway more than what any bank would give you in interest should you give them your money which they might probably use to invest in the stock market.
Good, seems to be a nice target many professional stock market traders aim for. I think Warren Buffet managed to pull off 30% to 40% annual ROI over many many years consequtively and for those that did not know, he is considered the best investor of all time (I might be wrong, just something I heard that stuck in my mind)
4% - 10%
Seems possible if you willing to start taking substantial risks. I've heard "amateurs" claiming of ways to achieve this return, but I am yet to find prove that it is possible with any kind of automated system generated and optimized, cos the people that claim these are normally not willing to "share their secrets" or they have only managed to do so with demo accounts over short periods of time.
10% to 20%
Seems to be the average of the "professional" okes with 10 to 30 years experience that trade for a living. None that I know of use automated systems, for they know that fundamentals and news play too big role for any "indicators" to consistantly work. Therefore they have to be on the ball almost 24/5 and merely use indicators for timing and confirmation of trades predetermined by intense knowledge of the markets.
20% to 30%
Have not actually heard about anyone achieving this, but I have my suspicions that some of the best of the best professionals out there (perhaps with some additional edge like inside info from the people that release economic stats before they get released to the public) might be able to pull those numbers off.
Is a scam. Period.
Anyone claiming that will never share their strategy for that would be proof that they are selling lies and are only there to take your money. If you come across someone / some company / some anybody claiming those numbers (not even to mentions those that claim above 100%) usually are selling something (EA, Signal Service, Managed Account) with lots of fine print. Then when you wake up realising your account is blown, they will tell you that you've been warned or you will simply not get hold of them ever again.
And that is my opinion, please feel free to disagree if your experience have proved different, but please don't disagree because you "think" you know better or heard from some guy in a bar some theory which neither he or anyone else has proven.
Hope to get some responses from you guys.
Once again, good luck.
Someone once said: "Money flows from the impatient to the patient" therefore I believe there HAS TO be a way to take the money from the greedy traders that's constantly out to make a quick buck without any effort or understanding as to what they are doing)
Cheers for now
