Daytrading: TANER APP (IV)

Trade cycle decleases while life cycle increases. How many days between buy dates and sell dates of our trades are trade cycles which tent to shrink recently. If trade cycles become zero, we call them daytrades.

Daytrade was so popular several years ago. It was a fad in the investor world: Many naive ambitious traders sat on computers, and trades all day. They were misguiided by seminars and gurus with fancy charts and track records. Most daytraders ended up loosing their lifetime savings.

Daytrades in this post are quite different in their features. They are simply byproducts of daily tradings to follow the TANER Momentums or to make gains in a very near term with some Leveraged ETFs/ETNs.

This year 43 daytrades have been made. The average profit was 1.6% and the average two-way commissions was just $3.63. The follwong two tables show the results.
