However on the question of whether it is doable I think it is very rare. Andrea Unger demonstrated in the World Trading Championship that it can be done consistently. Not sure whether survivorship bias is involved.

I have seen stats like this but it's always short lived and often aligned to great market moves. Look the years he won the cup for example.

2008 and 2009 were tumultuous times in the market with huge dollar gains in 2008 and then a reversal of those gains in 2009 followed by another swing back in 2010. All 3 of these years were one way bets in the dollar. In 2012 when things were range bound and he managed 84 percent which is still an impressive return but off the 100+ threshold.

Thinking of it now, all the amazing returns I have read about have been around major market crisis. The thing is they are not that common and you will be pushed to find someone achieve those gains in steady market conditions without being leveraged to their teeth. I accept I might be wrong here but that is because I am open minded and have yet to see evidence. If someone made 100+ percent consistently year in year out I am sure that person would be the richest man on the planet and we would all know about it.

How's your year going so far? I have been trading a little less due to work but making good progress.

Interesting i must say. Although i do not know much about Futures, he must be an A+ trader to make such fantastic results year in year out. I would have loved to see and interact with one that can achieve same results in Forex trading though.
Thank you
