This Extension enables four important new features in Wealth-Lab 8:

  • Scriptable Performance Metrics
  • Overoptimization detection
  • Multi-Objective Optimization
  • Compare Tool: Compare up to four Backtest results side-by-side


Advanced ScoreCard
A collection of advanced performance metrics.
Elements ScoreCard
This ScoreCard contains a set of elementary metrics which can be used with Formula ScoreCard to create more complex metrics:
Formula ScoreCard
This ScoreCard comes with a specialized extension, the Formula ScoreCard Control:
Edit Formula Metric
This extension lets you create, modify and delete fomulas for new metrics. Here is the edit dialog:
Select an Identifier
This dialog lets you edit an individal formula and evaluate this formula based on values form the last backtest. As formula any valid C# expression is accepted. It may contain any number of operators and Identifiers.
Partition Percentage
There are two methods to define the partition of your backtest interval into two parts, Insample and Out-of Sample. The first method uses a percentage of available time for the OOS interval:
Start Date
The second method uses a fixed date to start the Out-of-Sample interval:
In Sample and out of Sample
This ScoreCard calculates many available metrics on two intervals: Insample and Out-of-Sample:
Favorite ScoreCard
The Favourites ScoreCard comes with a Preferences TabPage:
Favorite Metrics
The Favourites ScoreCard shows all your favourite metrics on a single page:
Section Documentation
If you make printouts of the Metrics Reports and documment your strategy development process this way the new Documentation section is certainly helpful for you:
Metrics with Error Bars
For some of the metrics it is possible to calculate an "error bar." This gives you a better understanding about the available precission:
Compare Tool
Compare Tool allows to see up to four backtest results side-by-side. After a backtest has finished you can click "Save Backtest" in the "Compare" Visualizer to add the current backtest result to the result store:
Compare Tool - Add Results
After the next backtest has finished you can use the "..." button to load older backtest results into Compare Tool.
Compare Tool - Metrics
With up to four backtest results loaded you can view Performance Metrics side-by-side. All available ScoreCards are supported:
Compare Tool - Equity Curve
Show up to four equity curves at the same time. You may modify the color of each curve with the color picker.
Compare Tool - Strategy Settings
Compare Tool records all relevant strategy settings for later review and comparison. You may use the startegy description field to document your latest changes:
