How to Double Your Forex account in 7 weeks


By Michael Storm

Here is a simple plan I started working on for pip growth.  I personally believe that this is conservative and doable for a lot of folks. But, if you think its to aggressive, feel free to scale it back to something that makes you comfortable. I chose a small account starting size of just $10K and  a small trade size. Just ONE mini lot. Each week we hit our profit target of pips we get to move up to the next level.

Starting with a 10K account and trading just one   “mini Lot” our goal is to make:

50 pips on a Monday, and 50 on a Friday and 100 pips on a Tues- Thursday basis. This should equate to 400 pips or $400.  Should we achieve this $400 “delta” we get to go to level 2

Account balance goes to $10,400

Let us say that on week 2 we make the same pips but its now $800 (because we have moved up to 2 minis)

Account balance goes to $11,200

Using this continuous pattern ALWAYS searching for just 400 pips in a whole wide week. Some weeks we may make much more, other weeks less but on AVERAGE 400 pips a week and increasing the size we should eventually get UP.

Week 3 3 “minis” Profits $1200  Account balance  $12,400

Week 4  4 “minis” Profits $1600  Account balance $14,000

Week 5  5 “minis” Profits $2000  Account balance $16,000

Week 6  6 “minis”  Profits $2400  Account balance $18,400

And so on………

Week 7 Profits $2800  Balance:  $21,200

Week 8 Profits $3200  Balance:  $24,400

Week 9 Profits $3600  Balance:  $28,000

Week 10 Profits $4000  Balance   $32,000

Week  11 Profits $4400  Balance  $36,600

Week 12 Profits $4,800  Balance  $41,400

Week 13 Profits $5,200  Balance  $46,600

Week 14  Profits $5,600  Balance  $52,200

Week 15 Profits $6,000  Balance  $58,200

Week 16 Profits $6,400  Balance  $64,600

Week 17 Profits $6,800  Balance  $71,400

Week 18 Profits $7,200  Balance $78,600

Week 19 Profits $7,600  Balance $86,200

Week 20 Profits $8,000  Balance $94,200

Now, I will assume that there has been some “Plateau” effect. And that you had a few weeks scattered in here and there where you did NOT make it UP to the next level. Lets throw in 6 weeks, OK?  Let us say it took you 6 whole weeks and we can stop the Balance growing effect too. Lets say you never quite make it to 400 pips and it took you 26 weeks to get this 94 grand.   That is a half a year to go from 10K to almost 100K.

Lets carry it even further and say that your just getting uncomfortable going above  the 2 lots. Let us say that it took you 26 weeks to slowly move up a mini lot at a time and now your at 2 full lots and that is enough for you. Lets say you decide to NEVER go above this level and your simply going to trade 2 lots forever. Weeks 26 through 50.…. We add in 24 more weeks and we CAP your earnings at $8k a week for the rest of the year.

24 weeks x $8,000 = $192K MORE.  We add this to the $94,200 and come up with a total of  $286,200.

Can you do this?  Can you believe in this?  Is it really hard to make 100 pips a day? And 50 on a slow day?  If this is something you cannot believe in. CHOOSE a number you can believe in. CHOOSE a way to “Move up the ladder” according to YOUR rules.

Slow. Sure. Steady. Keep it going.  Make a plan and stick to your plan.  J

    How is it that people like you just want the world handed to them?  Here’s a thought, how about YOU do some hard work. YOU work on a system that generates positive pips, and then you can implement this plan.  Its all too easy to sit back and say give me this give me that.  Always looking for the easy ride at someone elses expense.  Get off your ass and do the work.

    Gimme a safe 100 pip generating system besides the advice.

     Hi Bruce. Most pairs have a daily range of over hundred pips in each day and many 15 min swing low to swing high moves are 30, 60 or more pips. In our live trade room we look for “pockets of movement” with a good probability of being hit. The greatest day of my life was 600 pips (few months back) and before that was 500 pips. I agree that is NOT often.  But achieving 100 a day is only finding a lousy 10 pip move and finding 10 of those a day. Markets are FILLED. I mean CHOCK FULL of dozens upon dozens of 10 pip moves. This is really not that difficult to get if your a scalper.  But HOW to do that, is beyond what I can put in just one article (I got 34 videos on my trading system).  But to make it simple. Look for buy and sell setups on 1 or 5 min charts. That occur at price points that make sense on hourly or 15 min charts (your looking for stall and reversal points like 200 ma’s or Fib levels drawn in on hourly or daily charts). It takes some work and a plan but it really can be done.  Thanks for Posting and trade safely.

    400 pips weekly is a hard task for even the experienced forex traders. How many traders consistently make 20pips daily? not many. Write a more informed article
