What can be a realistic expectation of returns from Intraday trading?

#1
Hi,
I have been trying a number of strategies for a last few months. I backtest the data and i get some returns. But the most basic question still remains - What can be a realistic expectation of returns from trading?
For example- If i have a capital of Rs 1 Lakh, then how much return should i expect if i do intraday trading. Quite obviously, talking of daily returns is pointless so in what timeframe should we judge the returns - annually or biannually or any other time frame ??

Now this depends on what trading system you are using. If you have a robust winning strategy then you go home with some profit. But if you are using some strategy which cannot handle the intraday noise then i’m Sorry bro.

For a new comer >OR <= -1000% to -100% range

For a intermediate Hardly Breakeven but he wont loose his initial capital or see wipeout

For experienced - sky is the limit. My father will tell if you take 1 bucket out of the sea, would it effect sea level? If you take 2 buckets out then? If you take 100 buckets out? If you take 1000 buckets out? If you take 100,000 buckets out?

Now do the opposite, If you put 1 bucket of water in sea what would it change

Now replace word bucket with world money and change word stock market with sea.

Wish you all the best
