I have some questions: If one were to assume a 10% volatility of a currency, and if one were to assume a max leverage of say 20, what is a reasonable time frame to turn $100 to $100K (or to ash)? I realize it depends on a lot of other factors. I am however asking to question to see what is a reasonable time frame assuming it is doable, and if it is an impossible task if the readers could share the reasoning.
Have you heard of anyone who did a similar attempt? What was the context, result, etc?
if my calc are correct 10% volatility ~ 0.1% hourly volatility. if one catches each 0.1% turn, bets the whole bankroll each time using full leverage he will get to $100K in about 4,000 hours or ~ half a year.
if one catches only one 0.1% turn out of 10 hours - 5 years. i don't even know how realistic it is to catch 1/10 hourly turns.
