How successful were you in 2015

I'm curious to know how successful people have been in 2015. On the internet many say that 90% of traders are unsuccessful. Personally I had a rollercoaster year but ended up 25% up. Considering this is my first year and the amount I've learnt and the positive outcome, I consider my year successful. I traded US Stocks.

How did you do?

Did very well 2013 and 2014. Mostly position trades in commodities. Didn't have the guts to trade like usually do last year. Different market last year IMHO. Expectancy way off. Spent more time last year day trading. My day trading improved drastically. Doing this full time, making enough to have buns with my hot dogs.
