    Usually they say 5%, but I would say less. It is market movers that are taking the money out of the market not traders

    There's no statistic that show how much traders lose, 95% is just a concept and estimation that remind us that the losers are way more than the winners. FOREX is a decentralized market, it's impossible to tell someone how much % winner we have in the FOREX market,

    Re: How many percent of succesful traders in forex world??

    i read somewhere last yr that its 5% win big
    5% win small
    and another 10% breakeven over the yr
    it also said that traders are getting more profitable not less, partly because of their longer experience in the markets

    so i don't really believe what we are repeatedly told

    found this on another forum recently

    what is failed to be properly documented, is how many brokers are dishonest
    i would say 95%

    I think that the low number of the successful users in the forex trading is caused by the lack of knowledge. People don't want to learn, they just want to make money.

    According to this article : 39% Of Forex Traders Are Profitable % of traders that are profitable differs from what we are used to hear
