I know this is forex only but this graphic over at interactive brokers is interesting.
Not sure why they hide Citi down in the 6th slot rather than prominently behind them.

Very interesting, thanks! Hard to tell if IB just attracts better traders or how much can be attributed to their price quotes.

Surprisingly is how many are still under in the Red, especially if presuming there are long term non-trading style accounts at IB for that number to still be that low.

The last time I was looking at profit.ly, in the markets overall, TD Ameritrade users were the most profitable on there. Might have changed since.

This stat includes inactive accounts that earn pennies on interest... thus not exactly an accurate reflection. Probably closer to 10% profitable... with only 1% who get to keep what they made.

Anyway if you look back at 6/7 years ago, I remember, that the % of profitable traders was a lot less. But I'm agree with Anagami that this stats are not very significant.

Take your Pips, go out and Live.
