Share trading - realistic returns?

I'm curious to know what is the realistic return one can expect when doing share trading (oppose to share investing) full time. Hereby I'm hoping that the experts can give some guidance based on their own performances (for example: doing share trading from 8 to 5 pm, can one expect 50% 'profit'/annum; if not what is a more realistic number?).
