Backtesting Support · What are some good backtesting results?

yes, you can make profits with loosing 3 out of 4 times.
But when you get in a draw down it really stresses your emotions.

And: dont forget to include comission and worse: slippage!!!

This thread is called winning streak as it is nothing close to a mathematical approach.

Of course there is another option to get in at a certain price.
Anyone that knows can tell....

This should call your attantion to the matter that any backtesting involves information, that would not have been available to you at the time actually trading.

"Past performance is no indication of future results!"

Keep that in mind. Dont try to maximize gains, try to have a simple system, that works most times and keeps the losses small.

This link is not meant as advertising, but as a moral story to anyone trying to make it in trading:

Please, whenever backtesting, take a calculator. Sum up a double ask-bid-spread slippage both ways and your round trip commission. Take this number off your profits and then decide if your system is all that great.

You can calculate yourself rich without slip or commish. But it wont work.

And please browse the forum for "money management". I pray you.

Please also check the surprises in open trades.
Though less than 10% not going the right direction is still above good average.

Since this hasn't been discussed here before, i thought i'd bring it up once.

There are some videos on the site (all free).
Its about pinpointing entry points for short term trades. Certain CCI patterns
suggest break of support / resistance.

Any thoughts or experiences with CCI for entry/exit?

You might want to have look at the "Foretelling the Future..." thread.

Changed the filter to suit your want:

market is nasdaq
set{c1,count(ind(qqqq,day change) above 0,1) + count(day change above 0,1)}
set{c2,count(ind(qqqq,day change) below 0,1) + count(day change below 0,1)}
set{correl,count(max(c1,c2) equal 2,100)}
add column correl
sort by column 5 descending
