    Instead of adding a variable that gives you a percentage of time you are not trading, would it not be better to have two variables to define your start and end time of trading? This way you will get your “actual” potential? This can be added to the holiday as well, defining for instance July as a non trading month due to summer holiday, and week 51 and 52 as christmas holiday for instance.

    Just a Thought.

    If I understand the presentation correctly –

    If you are not interested in your potential (which is just a guesstimate anyway) and are just using this as a means of comparison between securities, then you do not need to calculate the total hours you will be trading. The same % is applied to all securities; therefore you need not apply any % to any security.
