I have a question regarding ticket averages, defined as gross profit per thousand shares traded. Basically, I was wondering what a standard ticket average is for are all different levels of traders: 1. new trader with no experience (must be around zero) 2. trader with 6 months to a year of train of trading and training. 3. trader with two years of experience and training 4. veteran trader who makes a 6 figure living at this As a followup question, what would be typical volume in shares per month traded for these traders? Please let me know what you think a ballpark figure is for each. Clearly, it depends on style as well, i.e. some traders might settle for smaller ticket average but trade huge volume.
