A collection of advanced performance metrics.
This ScoreCard contains a set of elementary metrics which can be used with Formula ScoreCard to create more complex metrics:
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.
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:
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:
The Favourites ScoreCard comes with a Preferences TabPage:
The Favourites ScoreCard shows all your favourite metrics on a single page:
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 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:
