Cheers,

I'm having trouble viewing the attached file code. It won't open on my computer, what type of program do I need to open the file? Also, I'm on my Mac right now which could be an issue,.

Formula is in the 2013 OCT issue of Stocks and Commodities.

Flow Chart

Hi @SodyTexas,

I have a question about your development flow chart. You have t-score listed there as well as t-value. Is that the Student T test value?

This looks like it will be a great thread!

Hi @SodyTexas,

Great question, they are two different items in statistics.

T - Score (aka T-statistic) = (Sample Mean - Hypothesized Sample Mean) / (Sample Standard Deviation / Square root of the sample size)

You can reference the second attachment called "the paradigm shift" on how to look at this with a trading system. Or do some research on Van Tharp's SQN, but keep in mind he uses 100 instead of the square root of sample size.

The Students T Distribution, does have a t-score associated with it for hypothesis testing. But, a Student's t Distribution is a distribution curve usually used on hypothesis testing with a sample size of less than 30. It is basically a normal distribution curve with thicker tails and lower peak. The higher the sample size is the more "normal" a Students T Distribution approaches. Frankly, there is a high level of sampling error when only dealing with a small number of trades. Since I am hoping that any test we run has much more trades than 30 the Student T test would not be used.

I might have a typo on the flow chart as I compare t-score with a critical t value (might be what I meant). The critical t-value is the point that you want the t-score to be above, otherwise the system performance might have been caused from just luck and should not have any statistical confidence around the results. I can't seem to find where it says t value, only Critical (t) value; am I missing it?

On the previous page you attached AhrensBB and Soderstroms cloud files. I'm not quite sure what type of file it is. I was assuming it was a file containing your code for those specific indicators, so mostly plain text, when I tried to open it nothing seemed to happen. It would clone itself into another ZIP file with an added extension CPGZ.

I apologize, I failed to mention that I am using Ninjatrader for the trading system and indicators. These are .CS files (C#) that Ninatrader uses. They can be opened with Ninjatrader of my recommendation Visual Studio..

When using a MAC look into a program called XCode, it will be able to open a .CS file as well.

Cheers,

Sody
