Forex trading

    I was wondering how much per day can you make safely make Forex trading? I used etoro before but haven't done it in a while. Some articles I have read said that day traders aim at 1-2.5 % a day. I aimed for much higher profits with smaller amounts when I traded.

    Whats your opinion?

    I suppose it depends on your risk/ reward ratio really, or whatever you are comfortable with in your trade plan.

    Good luck.

    I've checked some trading websites and it looks as though on average 75% of people lose money on those sites.

    1-2.5% is nonsense. Crunch the numbers yourself and see.

    That sounds very, very low. I find it very hard to believe that 25% of retail traders are profitable. Guessing that the broker is working those numbers to make the them look better. My understanding is that ~90% of retail traders lose money trading.
