You see there is a little known difference between dreaming and doing, making the improbable probable is not something that can be achieved by a inexperienced trader, let alone a full time trader with many years under his/her belt. Sometimes the only way to get people reading from the same page is to give them a wake up call, a little sniff of reality from time to time.
So when a total newbie who wants to make a good go at trading suggests that they are aiming for anything more than 3% per day, consistently, I think we have all the proof in the world that this is just not doable for the long term view. The experienced traders here are not trying to be defensive in their views, nor are they trying to 'beat there chests' in a parade to show they they are always right and you are in the wrong. In any business, when you come running in, talking of outstanding statistics, you are going to be put into your place, unless proved otherwise.
Which brings me onto my next point, there has never been any proof, all threads have failed with excessive target gains. Be it on the Baby Pips website, or other trading forums, there is no proof of any successful trader making excessive gains month in month out. If you could perhaps prove me wrong, then this can be settled
