Ok so lets put this into some sort of context, then maybe the last line will make sense, ok?
To withdraw money you need money invested, so don’t forget that - it’s important.
Most really really good traders / speculators will make maybe 5% to 10% a month with safe risk management. I don’t know where you live, or the average cost of living, but even 5% of $300 is not much, right? That’s why I suggested that an account of the size that you’re looking at is not for withdrawal purposes, it’s actually for learning purposes. Even if you turned it into $5,000 over a long time you’d still be looking at about $250 a month, maybe more of you knew what you were doing whilst still utilising sound risk management and position sizing?
To make money in this game, and money that actually starts to come close to a salary to live off, would require well over $20,000 and an amazing attitude/ability to trade when it matters. But, as always, that’s my own thoughts.
I’ve traded an account in excess of $100k and still some months i’ll walk away down - it’s not stable, that’s the problem we have here. To be consistently profitable is bloody difficult, regardless of what you have in the piggy bank.
