I am looking at converting calendar periods to trading days.

Assuming only trading days (excluding market holidays), is the following the right conversion?

1 calendar year= 252 trading days
6 calendar months= 125 trading days
3 calendar months (one quarter)= 63 trading days
1 calendar month= 21 trading days
1 calendar week= 5 trading days.

I am confronted with a problem. When I compare results for weekly, monthly and 3-monthly gains from www.morningsatr.com, and I write close divided by close [ 1 week ago, 1 month ago, 3 months ago] in my watchlist columns, the results are different. So maybe substituting exact number of days might solve the problem.
