can you provide me with some ideas to assess the profitability of round-trips? That is when I buy 100 shares of IBM at 10\$ and I resell them two days later at 11\$, how can I measure the profit made? Using which benchmark? How can I compare two round-trips on different stocks at different points in time? What do practitioners do in Banks/funds?
