I've forgoteen my Grade 8 algebra.. If you have a $10,000 account, and you make 10% return per week... how much do you have after 1 year? After 5 years, 10 years? Thanks!

?....1 plus the interest rate (expressed as a decimal), raised to the exponent "n", where n equals the number of weeks of compounding, times $10,000....I think. At 10% per week, the account would double about every 7 weeks.....I think. :eek:

oh. the recent post by acrary, 200% per year (which i believe is reasonable too, 1 trade per day, 1.5 profit factor). not including taxes 10K account, 200% 5 years-> $2,430,000 10 years -> $590,490,000 of course you'd have to ignore all liquidity issues... hmm, maybe i need to stop scalping for pennies

$33,434,611,583,249,516,213,676,831 I can see the little Google ad now - 'How I turned my $10,000 into $33 Septillion in less than a decade!'
