What would be a realistic annual return for a professional trader? (in percentage) I ask this because there are a ton of sites where you can find the same things: Technical Analysis (Bollinger Bands, Moving Averages, Fibonacci, etc.) Money Management (what is the Risk: Reward, investing 2% of capital, etc.) Psychology (mental attitude, zen, self-discipline, etc.) Some mention of Fundamental Analysis But anyone who publishes an example of annual yield. So I decided to open a poll trying to put more percentages options Source.
