What are some realistic return percentages that a day and or swing trader can make on his account in a week and or a month? For instance return percentage for the: Average swing/day trader percentage: ? good swing/day trader percentage:? Master swing/ day trader percentage: ? week and month for each. Just because I'm a newb, and I always see some site trying to get you to buy their course by quoting a high percentage of return then quoting how much that would turn into through compounding. The compounding part sounds reasonable, but I want to find out what is a realistic return on a trading account so I can put some real figures into a compounding calculation.
