How many Pips per week on average? seriously now!!

I am asking this because I have yet to find the answer on the internet EVER!!! Is it 50 pips per week or 500 pips per week?

I've seen results of forex competition winners who claim 1000's percent return in a month... not interested in a month return but at least six, and pips made rather please.

There will no doubt be the normal sarcastic answers to this like: "it's not the pips but the return that matters" and "no pro counts pips but £ returns" and "it's all about money management"....

A trader either has a system that delivers a certain (consistent) amount of pips per week or not. How traders decide to leverage their account is not up for discussion and is their own business.

Please only answer this if you honestly deliver an average over at least 6 months...and PLEASE, no rookie's please who have had 2 weeks of good trading and now think they can educate the world!!!

I would like to hear from the more experienced forum traders, moderators etc... I bet there will not be a direct answer to this direct question!!

Well, I'm asking because I can not find any indication what successful traders are doing consistently, I know what I'm doing per week.If everyone comes back and says they're doing 300 pips per week and I'm doing 20 pips week then I would by how much I am falling short....

the thing is, ask a simple question in forex on a forum and you'd be amazed how you would NOT get a simple answer!!

Or to put it another way

The problem is not your question as such, which is stupid - but it is understandable why you would ask it.

It is, however, your insistence that your question has any validity at all after being told that it doesn't that marks you out as a window licker.

Maybe its not a simple answer after all. Success is in this game is individual . If you pull out 10 pips consitently , then you are successful at a level.

There is not really a benchmark of pips as such, just what ones own psyche can acheive.

mmmm, yes. but, all I have asked is how many pips you are doing per week? I won't judge you at all, other forum tarts probably will, I would just like to know of those that are making positive pips week in week out and how much it is. I think all newbies and aspiring traders would like to know

How about you explain why it is a sensible question first? Anyone who knows anything can give you a zillion reasons it's ridiculous.

A mate of mine usually makes a NEGATIVE number of pips each week and still averages around 20% a month. I also knew a guy who made an amazing 13,000 pips in a month, but still lost 11% of his account doing so

As Arabian has kindly pointed out, its a question worthy of a window licker.
