It depends on a lot of things. On a very good day, it can be as high as 5-10% if your risk sizing is appropriate. Anything above 2% is considered decent. Considering that trading is a volatile activity to be involved with, it makes sense to net 1-2% on an average day and try to be consistent with few and small drawdowns in between. That's the real way to be successful with intraday trading.
