Comparing a Back-Tested Algorithm to the Live or Walk-Forward PerformanceAlgorithmic Trading Educational & Tutorial Videos
This algorithmic trading educational video is a great overview on how we compare the live performance of an algorithm to it’s back-tested.
Topics covered include: How do we back-test an algorithm? Why is the back-tested model the most optimistic version? Once an algorithm begins trading live – how do you know if it’s still a good trading algorithm? What is the swing trader algo? How does it perform in back-testing? More importantly, how has it done since it’s algorithms began trading live? With 19+ months of live trade history – we are ready to grade the algorithms contained in this automated trading system.
In this video, our lead developer reviews the back-tested results from the swing trader (Momentum ES Algo + Treasury Note TY Algo) and compares the live/walk-forward returns to the back-tested. Is the swing trader meeting the back-tested expectations? Watch this video to see for yourself.
It is our opinion that the algorithms we offer are high-quality trading systems, however no trading system is perfect. Trading futures & options involves substantial risk of loss and is not appropriate for all investors. With that said, if you have risk capital available to trade and are willing to accept the risk trade off – with the potential for great gains, reach out to us for a live demo where we will review our algorithms in great detail!
