we can simply do the Math.
runtime: 5 Years, or 1.305 Trading Days (assumed no holidays).
start: 1000 $
stop: 1.000.000.000 $
using geometric growth formula (compound interest),
r = (xt/x0)(1/t) - 1
=(1000000000/1000)^(1/1305) - 1
=1000000^(1/1305) - 1
For Tan Phan Ngoc to reach 1.000.000.000 in 5 years,
He has to make profit 1.07% of account balance every day (assume no limit of lots).
day 1 -> 1,000 he should made the balance to be 1,010.7
day 2 -> 1,010.7 he should made the balance to be 1,021.5
... till day 1305.
Does this 1.07% make sense? It is your discretion.
In theory Yes
In Practice No
As you make more money you will need to increase lot size and the bigger the lot size the more the price will distort against you when you get in and when you get out of market- especially with an EA this is not possible. It is possible only with long term trading long term trands- You only need to look at the big money to see that the bigger money pot you have the harder it is to get high returns- and the number of strategies for profitable trading reduces. You can not for example try to scalp with a billion dollar account
