This depends on a number of factors and there is no definitive answer. Anyone who tells you that you can average x number of dollars every day like clockwork is lying to you or delusional. Profitability comes in waves largely due to market conditions so you may make 40 ticks on a fantastic day when the market is in Grand Prix mode and then be lucky to get 2 ticks during a day when absolutely nothing is happening and there’s zero volatility. The trick is being able to capitalize on good conditions and then preserve that capital during poor conditions. It has to be viewed from a year-end perspective. I discuss this more in my blog, “What’s it all about?”.
