  1. Anyone ?
     
  2. Which year?
     
  3. MTE

    MTE

    As a generalization, 252 or 260 days are used.
     
  4. 104 weekend days + 7(?) market closed holidays...

    = 254, or 255 in leap year...

    That right?
     
  5. Options formulas use 252 for annualizing things like implied volatility.

    It only takes 3 minutes to count it, but how do you count half days???
