    I'm not factoring commission cost for this experiment. If 20 bucks is a deal breaker for a strategy then it's probably not a good strategy. And if your day trading on $20 rounds trips and your not trading at least 1000 shares, you're doing it wrong.

    The only winner will be the broker, taking his commission.

    commission should be calculated as a %, this is why i say you got to have a 100 000$+ portfolio to make it worth your while, then commission would be a very small % when compared to gains or loses at that volume

    Only problem is if you have 100k+ portfolio you'd never use a 'strategy' this stupid.... And at a bigger portfolio you get charged a commission of anywhere from 3-5cents a share. if youre only making 3-4cent gains then you have made no money.
