It’s possible. I once turned $1500 into $4600 in 5 weeks.
The stats shown have been limited to just that particular time that I had that winning streak. Here’s what happened after.
But guess what happened, I blew that account in the next 2 weeks. You can have good days and lucky streaks that last for days and weeks but being too aggressive eventually poses a really high risk of eventually losing. I have several more experiences like this. The second week I traded live I turned $2K into $3K. I have done $1K into $1500 in a week, $900 to $2000 in 24 hours, $250 into $800 in three days, etc. All on different accounts. Every single time I had a good winning streak trading aggressively, I kept increasing position sizes and continued to be aggressive, and every time I blew my accounts.
Recently I’ve been concentrating on managing risk as well. I am comfortably averaging about 0.3-0.5% a day. It might take me much longer but I think it is way more sustainable and has a higher chance of success. The key seems to be trading with larger capital, because if you trade with $500 and make 20% in a day that’s only $100, whereas with say $10K if you make “just” 1% there’s your $100 a day.
Here’s what my 3 week old account looks like now that’s focused on limiting risk.
