What percentage of day traders are successful?

People often say that 95% of traders lose money, but so far there haven’t been any official statistics to back up or disprove that claim. Now, however, we finally get some actual useful data:

According to a recent survey by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) among 57 of forex, CFD and binary options brokers, 80% of Binary Options traders lose money, while the percent with CFD and forex traders is 72 and 63 respectively.

How can I become a perfect trader?
Here is Benzinga’s top two way to becoming a better trader:

1) Control Your Emotions When Trading.
2) Money Management

Three Tips To Help Control Your Emotions When Trading:

1. Learn Something New About Trading.
2. Perform Some In-Depth Market Research.
3. Paper Trade Until You Falls Over.

1. Learn Something New About Trading. Maybe you have wanted to learn more Iron Condors or Credit Spreads, or maybe you have been wanting to learn more about RSI and MACD indicators. Well, stop thinking about it and schedule some time to sit down and do the hard work – pick up a book, watch a video tutorial.

2. Perform Some In-Depth Market Research. You have to be curious about something that’s happening in the market right now right? Downtimes in the market can be great opportunities to do some intense market research.

3. Paper Trade Until You Falls Over. I STILL paper trade each week. I test out new strategies, new indicators, new ideas with paper money first before I ever put real money to work. Focus on a particular setup and paper trade it on a simulator 10 or 20 times. A great new tool is thinkorswim’s think back trading that allows you to “replay” an entire day of trading just as if you were reliving it all over again!

Seven Tips To Help Money Management systems.

1. Quantify Your Risk Capital
2. Avoid Trading Too Aggressively
3. Admit When You Are Wrong
4. Use Stop-losses
5. Don’t Trade on Tilt
6. Respect and Understand Leverage
7. Think Long-Term


CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage.
