I've never put one into action yet, but the intellectual challenge is fun. Yes, there are 2 units of slippage activated and $7 commissions (I don't use EB), it's a purely 10% of equity on 30k money management strat. Change it to to risk 3% of equity given the stops and things get more interesting, but an equity percentage is the most conservative. Yeah, I know stops get blown out. Them's the breaks. I can't figure odds on a black swan event. It's gambling, gambling with an edge, but gambling. The only thing your or I can control is how much we risk on a position.

It's slightly optimized over one time period, but the 8 year backtest includes that period. I know.

It's not much of an edge, but at least it's an edge. They are both doing the same thing, except the less exposed one...is less exposed. That's all I'm willing to say.

My other big concern is data mining. These are over a fundy screen, which I would update every quarter. Unfortunately, it's not easy to get that fundy screen every quarter over the past 8 years.

So which one, and why? I like the less exposed myself, even though returns are lower. If it forward tests well, I can switch to the other one, and in the meantime, it's highly unlikely I'll hit a a drawdown that will make me give up. And I can go invest that 80% not necessary in TIPS or savings bonds, lol.

Your Wealth-Lab Scores suck. Profit factors below 1.5 are not stomachable no matter what the ulcer index ranking is.

Calmar's below 1, so that's not excessively profitable.

Really, look at the Superbands scripts at http://wl4.wealth-lab.com. Use on NASDAQ 100 Watchlist.

Basically you've found a random pattern with an edge not high enough to earn more than a risk free long term investment.

You will be disappointed in either strategy's performance.

Incidentally, here is what a robust model looks like:

The Wealth Lab Scores in particular need to be at least 100 before you should ever try trading that model.

Now I know this is the best Wealth Script that was ever written, so don't think that this was easy.

Not even close, Bowo...

3x instruments and fully margined will make more than yours, but with twice the drawdown. I target 2000% np in futures at 5:1 and 30% dd for 5 year periods.

You have a futures strategy here that's making more money because mine was on QID and QLD and the most recent 5 years. TQQQ at 112% of equity makes more than yours, and roughly 10 times TQQQ's at 5:1 with NQ. You have twice as much data to backtest, and your expectancy is much less. With 5 more years mine will be better, and it already is.

Also, Avg Profit/Loss % 0.92%, by expectancy mine's way more profitable than yours. Your backtest is twice as long, and nowhere near the APR that mine has.
