i'm more than satisfied..... but my goals are unbelievably small..... so small in fact that usually in less than a single month the accounts yearly goal is met....

the hard part is not over-trading......h

hey alex.... not manually..... but i have ea's running which do trade full time.....h
Nice way, I've always wondered if an EA is worth attention. As for me, I'm just scared to leave my funds to some algorithm. Peoples' reviews on them are so different.. have you written one by yourself?

I have noticed that no matter how much money I make there is never enough :D So it's really hard to tell whether I am satisfied.

hey alex..... you really have to be careful when running ea's if large amounts of money are at stake..... there is so much that can go wrong ..... most of which very few people even think of..... this is obvious by looking at the code they write.....

i've only bought one ea and that was many years ago, 2006 or 2008..... a private group of us bought azmel ainul's 'pid' ea..... i think it was a couple hundred dollars..... i tripled my 500$ account and actually got some small award or something from ibfx.... they might have had a contest, can't remember..... quite a few people lost a lot with it..... this had to do with them using too aggressive settings.....

i do not see me ever buying another......

yes i have written a ridiculous number of ea's..... several or more a week at a minimum.....

ea's need to think deep..... they must be prepared for every imaginable 'if' and have a well thought out 'then' for it......h

Thanks for the answer! In fact, I was just interested if 'bought' EAs work, as I don't program by myself
Several ones per week sounds seriously!
Well.. maybe after some time I'll do that too, but really, it may appear to difficult to think of every 'if' and program it into the EA...

Yes, I am quite satisfied on my monthly percentage but I have a plan to increase my trading target in the upcoming August! Actually, I increase my monthly target in a year for one time only! Now I am trading with 15% monthly target, from August it will be around 18%!

Well, now I am making 10% monthly return here (in average) and I am quite happy on it! But, that doesn’t mean I have stopped my learning process! Till now I do analysis on my live trading mistakes for a better result!

I am in forex field from 7 years now and it has been a great journey. At times I fell to greed and faced loss but whenever I was not in greed I made a lot of money.

Yeah making 10% its enough to make off my living. But I wouldn't mind to earn more, but for now reinvest some of my profit sometimes to place bigger trades.

I was satisfied with my income at the beginning, but for now, I try to do more and each time I get the target I need a new one.
