How much monthly profit does an average successful forex trader make in terms of percentage?

Question

I have seen figures quoted as anything from 2%- 30%  whats a realistic monthly profit % month on month?

New traders often have very unrealistic expectations of what profit can be achieved, in my experience if you are able to maintain 10% Profit per month over the course of a year you are in the very top echelon of traders.

Definitely agree with Jaglom above. If you are ever wondering about how much a trader can make each month in terms of percentage then I would suggest going and looking at some of the top hedge funds yearly performance and divide it by 12. That should give you an idea of what your own expectations should be (hint: a lot lower), especially as a newer trader.
