What is the average duration of your swing trades in days?

Average holding time when only considering winners is 13 trading days. But the range goes from a couple days up to half a year. When you include stop loss hits it is shorter but I never calculated that number. I am not a day trader and while I scale-out quickly (intraday sometimes) depending on price action I also sit tight once those scale-outs are in place and made the position bullet proof.
