Typically top swing trading hedge funds would like to see at least 8 weeks of performance but it seems you have really got the swing of things so I'd say in your case you're probably looking at 6 weeks max to start fielding offers. Keep it up!!

Admittedly I'm not that familiar specifically with swing trading HFs but that still seems very short to me. On the scale of a HF's monthly track record that's only 2 data points, surely that's way too short to be able to infer anything from?
