*Column Definitions:

  • Strategy - The name of the strategy.

  • Trades - The number of trades used in the backtest to analyze performance. Our goal is ~1,000 trades for comparison.

  • Start date- The beginning date of the backtest.

  • End date - The ending date of the backtest.

  • # of days - The number of days in the strategy.

  • Drawdown - This refers to the maximum drawdown statistic, which provides you with information regarding the biggest decrease (drawdown) in account size experienced by the strategy. Drawdown is often used as an indicator of risk.

    Drawdown = single largest Drawdown

    As an example, your account rises from $25,000 to $50,000. It then subsequently drops to $40,000 but rises again to $60,000. The drawdown in this case would be $10,000 or -20%. Take note that drawdown does not necessarily have to correspond with a loss in your original account principal.

  • Profit - The net profit made on the strategy for the backtest.

  • #trades per day - The average number of trades made per day using the strategy.

  • Profit / Day - The average profit made per day.

  • Profit / Trade - The average profit made per trade.

  • Lowest daily new profit - The worst performing day of the strategy in the backtest.

  • Highest daily net profit - The best performing day of the strategy in the backtest.
