# Dear *MATI Trader,*

# Let me ask you something.

*“How much money would you like to bank a month?” *

# R5,000?

# R30,000?

# R60,000?

# To answer this question and to get you on the path of achieving this income, you’ll need just one tool.

# Pull out your profitable trading plan

# You and I both know that to set a monthly income goal for trading, you’ll need a solid, proven and easy to follow game plan.

# If you don’t have one, you can claim the one I’ve used over the last 17 years which have helped countless clients grow an income. Own it by going here.

# If you do have a trading strategy that you’re happy with and works for you, then great.

# You should already have a strong indication on how your portfolio has performed during an array of different market environments.

# Obviously the more data you have on your trading, the higher the reliability that you’ll earn similar monthly returns in the future.

# Once you have gathered your historical trading data, you’ll then need to jot down four important stats namely:

Four stats to create a desired income per month

**Stat 1:**

No. of expected winning trades per month.

**Stat 2:**

# Average % gain in rands per trade.

**Stat 3:**

No. of expected losing trades per month.

**Stat 4:**

Average % loss in rands per trade.

# To choose the monthly income you’d like to pocket per month, you’ll need to know how much you’ll need in your trading account.

# Let’s say you want to bank an average R30,000 on average per month, with both winning and losing trades.

# For this article, let’s use the metrics of the *MATI Trader System* that I’ve back and forward tested for the past 17 years.

# Let’s plug the stats into the table to see.

**Expected return a month: **R30,000

**Stat 1: **

3 Winning trades per month.

**Stat 2:**

4% Average gain per winner.

**Stat 3: **

2 Losing trades per month.

**Stat 4:**

2% Average loss per loser.

# We now have all the information to calculate how much money you’ll need, in order to bank an average monthly R30,000.

# 1 Formula to calculate how how much you need in your trading account

Step 1:

**Find out the total percentage gain you can earn per month**

= (Winning trades X Gain % per winner)

= (3 Winners X 4% Gain)

= 12% gain.

Step 1:

**Step 2: **

**Calculate the total percentage loss you can lose per month**

= (Losing trades X Loss % per loser)

= (2 Losers X 2% Loss)

= 4% loss

**Step 3:**

**Finally calculate the amount of money you can net on average per month**

# = (Total gain %) – (Total loss %)

# = (12% Gain – 4% Loss)

# = 8% Net gain

**Step 4:**

Know your trading account size to pocket a desired monthly income.

Know your trading account size to pocket a desired monthly income.

# = (Expected amount to earn ÷ Net % return per month)

# = (R30,000 ÷ 8% Return)

# = R375,000

# So to bank around R30,000 on average per month, with 3 winners and 2 losers, you’ll need to have a trading account of R375,000.

# Don’t be fooled if you think you’ll bank R30,000 EVERY month!

# As you know, my goal through your *MATI Trader* journey is to show you how realistic successful trading works

# With pretty much every trading system, you can expect around three to four losing months a year.

# Some months you may be down R15,000 and other months you’ll be up R50,000, we never know for certain how the future will pan out.

# However, with a proven and a long back and forward tested trading system, with this formula will give you the edge of what the likelihood of your returns will be.

# Trade well,
