When I first started playing with algorithmic trading I thought it would be viable to aim at a >5% per day profit and was confused why more people weren't working on it.

Several years later and with much trial and error, actual reasonable/realistic backtesting and many experiments I think that now I have the answer. A strategy that consistent provides over ~0.2% profit per day is pretty much a best case scenario.

@hugo That doesn't sound bad at all. If you'd invest 100k EUR, you get 200 EUR per day. Not bad as living wage.


@ondra if I had 100k that I could afford to risk in trading, I wouldn’t need trading algorithms to make a living :P

I’m joking but yep, I am starting to believe that it only is a valid option for someone with large capital. You could probably make more just dollar averaging on a raising market.
