With some of the recent discussions on trading period, taking into account factors, such as tax, thought it might be interesting to see which preference a poll turns up.
Using the definitions below, grouping 1) and 2) together under short term trading, indicate your preference:
1) Intra-day trading , up to 2 day hold
2) Short term trading 2-7 day hold
3) Intermediate term 7-20 day hold
4) long term 20 day to six months or more
A similar poll is being run on another forum, which has a higher % membership of professional and futures traders, so it will be interesting to see how the results pan out on ASF.
