Annualized Gain

- If you held the position less than 365 days, then… Annualized Gain=365*(Gain/Hold Period)
- If you held the position 365 days or more, then..
- If gain is < -100, then… Annualized Gain = -100 ((1 – Gain/100)^(365/hold period) – 1))
- If gain is > -100, then… Annualized Gain = -100 ((1 + Gain/100)^(365/hold period) – 1))
