I have lately been reading up on what Forex Trading is and how it works. In many sources, it is described that a consistent investor can generate
15% return annually.
My question is, what is this return based on? Is it based on your margin or is it based on your total position (which includes leverage).
Lets say you have a margin of
$1000 and your broker provides you with a leverage of
100:1, so you have a position of
Now is your return
$1000 = $150 or is it
$100,000 = $15,000?
