Given the left page scenario, what is the minimum number of days until the expected value rebalances to $1,000,000? The diagram on the right demonstrates pictorially how expected values are calculated per day iteration

By expected value are you referring to the probabilitic meaning or do you mean the point at which you are guaranteed to make $1,000,000? I ask because the latter is possible to never come.
