At the top of the screen there are radio buttons to allow for the removal of results from poor performing test sets. As an example: If you select the 10% option, we will only display the results of the best 10% performing test sets. Select 100% to include the test results from all the test sets.
The chart shows the normalized equity and balance figures. These totals have been aggregated over the total testing period.
We need to normalize results to come to a valid average that weighs all trades in a comparable way and is not influenced by trade size or duration. All results are normalized to show the "result per lot per day", i.e. what would have been the average result for each day had you traded one lot. This is different to the accumulated results, which show the "total result per lot over the whole run time."
This needs two calculations:
So there can be small deviations as not all information is contained in the data. Nevertheless, the overall data tendencies are good and reliable.
The charts are mouse-sensitive and show tooltip information if you hover the mouse over the hotspots.
