Converts a daily proportion gain to a corresponding annual (or several year) gain. For example, an investment that gains 0.1% per day would gain approximately 28.5% in a year (252 trading days). The formula is: `total.gain = (1 + daily.gain) ^ (252 * years) - 1`

. Here `total.gain`

and `daily.gain`

are proportions, e.g. 0.15 for 15%.

daily.yearly(daily.gain, years = 1)

`daily.gain` |
Numeric value (or vector) representing the daily proportion gain of an investment. |
