New to this, unexpectedly good results?

Recommended Posts

Hi there everyone!

I've been trading with a demo Spreadbetting account for about a month now and have really gone deep on the research and learning with regards to trading, reading charts etc etc.

My results have been really quite good! Not sure if I'm lucky, or if I am actually making good trades and doing everything correctly. What I am more concerned with overall is that the demo account loads you with £10k to play with, I have nowhere NEAR that amount to open a live account with. Having made multiple trades a day, mostly on Forex, am I likely to be able to make the same trades?

To keep things simple for myself I have been trading with £1 per point so I can more easily see how many points I win or lose by per trade. If I open an account with £1k, is it likely that I could make 10-15 trades a day (with as many as 8 open positions at one time) without reducing my size so something so small it seems irrelevant? 

If I am trading with a size of 0.05, making 500 points per week sure SOUNDS great but its only £25 per week.

I guess I am seeing how my trading is going with £10k and looking at my results like "oh wow, I made £500 this week! What a difference this would make to me if it was real money!" When in reality I would be looking at making 1/100th of that. Would this be the case? And I would look to build the account at £25 per week over time? 

My apologies for the long post, I appreciate anyone that takes the time to read this, let alone answer it.
Many Thanks

    • The crypto market appears to be showing signs of recovery, with significant improvements in the Sharpe Ratios of Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum, according to an article published on Friday.  The Sharpe Ratio, a measure used to understand the return of an investment compared to its risk, has seen a notable increase for both cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin's Sharpe Ratio has risen from -2.4 to 0.68, while Ethereum and BGB have also experienced a similar uptrend. This change signifies higher returns at lower risk, which is expected to attract more investors to the crypto market. In addition to the improved Sharpe Ratios, increased network activity and trading volume as shown on CEXs like Bitget, Binance, and a few DEXs are suggesting a healthier market state. The current trading prices of Bitcoin, reflect this overall positive market sentiment. As of Friday, Bitcoin was trading at $27,069.73, BGB at $0.454 and Ethereum at $1,677.89. These developments are significant as they indicate reduced risk in the crypto market. The increase in the Sharpe Ratios for Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum suggests that these cryptocurrencies are becoming less risky investments, which could potentially lead to an influx of new investors into the market.  Could this rise in Sharpe Ratios coupled with increased network activity and trading volume point towards a recovering and less risky crypto market?
