Lets say you invested $100 over 5 trading days and got a $10 return, thus getting $110 back (less commission of say $2). How would you compute ROI?
Thanks in advance………….

Thanks,
But I still can’t get from 5 days times .08 to 584%. I tried every combination 5/365 times .08……….ugh……..
Thanks again

simple interest would be if you make 8(%) * 52 weeks(5 day periods per year) = 416%
8 * 52 = 416

Ok…thanks…..I see what I did wrong….the numerator and denominator for the time factor……..365/5=73….73*.08=5.84 or 584%.
Thanks again for your imput……………..
