In daytrading not so difficult as it would be 0.45 point ES net average every day. I trade with a limited amount of money but average far more then 1.8% net every day AVERAGE the last X years. But I don't compound eternally, so I am not a billionaire. So I can compound 10 days in a row with a daily average of 1.8% if I start small enough, like with $1.500. Then I will not bump into the problem of compounding yet.
