On average how long would you say it will take an average person to become consistently profitable if they follow say, some of the systems in the PA course with discipline. And is it realistic to expect to end every week profitably if one only trades 4hr and daily timeframes?
Both are equally important but obviously depends upon the frequency the system trades. Regardless, I'd want nothing less than 3yrs of testing for any system before using it on a live forward test. But there is no set amount of trades as each system has different trading frequencies. Ideally the min would be about 500+ on the low end and several thousand on the upper end.
