Hello,

I am new to NinjaTrader and this forum. I have been using other auto-mated trading strategies for the past 2 years with some moderate success, average returns of around 40-50% a year.

I have recently built a strategy in ninjatrader that is giving around 700-900% returns in cumulative profit charts. This shocked me at first so I have been reviewing the trades and they seem correct. Do any of you have success like this in backtest results and when trading in live mode find the results very skewed? This strategy is designed to trade only stocks that are volatile. It is an intra-day strategy only allocating around 20K a trade and avg trade times of 70-90 minutes depending on a few things.

I know that the results vary by simulated and real time strategies because real time can take trades before the bar closes. This strategy was designed to function on the closing of the bars so should results vary that much?

I have been running it real time and the results are rather reflective of the performance of the simulated mode. Any comments are welcome.

Thanks!

These are quite good equity curves. I think that you can't get much Information from the members here, because the strategy could have a wide range of error sources. Without more details regarding the BARTYPE and the RULES it's quite impossible to step in. BUT if your real trades matches the simulated results (more or less) then you are on the right track. I can strongly recommend to try your strategy on a portfolio of stocks to smooth out the equity curve.

... and of course - Welcome on board ! -

Thanks,

Thats what I was thinking. I am using minute bars and the close on the bars. Seems to be pretty reflective of the same strategy on the simulation account. My fills may be a penny or so off but I think I am on the right track. At least there is not a very wide discrepancy.

The historic data I used was from TDA and I downloaded it, so hopefully it is pretty reflective.
