The table below compares the maximum Sharpe Ratios that could be attained at 10-second, 1-minute, 10-minute, 1-hour and 1-day frequencies in EUR/USD. The results are computed ex-post with perfect 20/20 hindsight on the data for 30 trading days from February 9, 2009 through March 22, 2009. The return is calculated as the maximum return attainable during the observation period within each interval at different frequencies.
