Consistency example:

BEST TRADING DAY: $1,000 (net after commissions).80% of the Largest trading day = $800 (The total sum of three (3) other best trading days' must be equal to or greater than the best day).


Trading Day 4 - 2nd Best Trading Day: $400 (net after commissions).Trading Day 9 - 3rd Best Trading Day: $300 (net after commissions).Trading Day 15 - 4th Best Trading Day: $240 (net after commissions).___________________________________$400 + $300 + $240 = $940 (Over $800). 

The consistency can also be completed within two (2) days.

For example:Largest trading day = $1,0002nd largest day = $800
