I often hear (even from financial professionals) that a track record may be a pure luck and in either case one needs at least 10 years of track record to "boast" with it. I show that (given a sufficient number of trades and independence of the market regime) 2 or 3 years are enough to make a track record proven (or at least statistically significant)

Though the article is primarily intended for non-professionals, I think it will be interesting to professionals, too ... at least I experienced a lack of ability to judge a track record even among fund managers.
