I'm a Half-time :) trader.....that is besides my profession, I do trading coz I love it and also get paid to do something of liking !

Rather than stating how much profit, let me answer it in an even simpler way :thumb:

It is possible to double your initial capital in a year....very much possible....

So you can take average returns per month range anything from 10%-15%...and in some months can go up to 25% :thumb:

But doubling your seed capital in a year is very much possible...and realistic too :thumb:

And once the seed capital is doubled, park away the profit somewhere else and continue to double the seed capital is the strategy I'm following :thumb:

Its not so difficult as I had thought earlier!

Before Intend to be a full time Trader, please check whether

- are you able to meet monthly commitment next 1 year (assume, your profit in the market is Nil for next 1 year - with capital protection)
- If your age is between 25 to 29, better be in the service and do trade.
- Risk Capacity
- Protection of Dependents.

Be careful my dear friend. Learn and Trade/Make Money.

one can earn 5 to 10 % profit every month which can average to about 50% in a year . a well informed & trained trader can do at least 10 trades per month in 20 wkg day where he gains 2% which add to 20% . he may also do 10 bad trade where he can loose 1% in each trade making it 105 in month . so net gain will remain 10% .deduct brokerage , STT etc & your gain will be 5 To 8% per month which add to at least 50% if you regularly trade with stop loss & do not loose fortune when market collapse due to bad reason

you have to do only 20 trades in 20 days ie one trade per day to get this earning . if you do more , then it will depend on your skill , luck & greed . more you trade without skill , more you loose & vice versa

Anil sreedhar - Loosing 2 lakhs in 3 days on investment of Rs 3.75 lakh is a foolish act . certainly you have failed to observe basic rule of stock market ie always trade with stop loss . . If you would have followed it you would not only have protected your profit but also would have protect your capital

Now how to go about it ?

your selection of share appears to be ok . just follow the golden rule of trading with stoploss & target for exit .This is must if you are planning trading in futures . Put stop loss as per your risk taking capacity or at yesterday low
