PortfolioMerge

I wanted to start a thread on this unfortunately discontinued product: PortfolioMerge.

It was a relatively affordable product allowing to analyze portfolios of systems running in TradeStation via the export in XML RINA file format of the Strategy Performance Report.

I found this product easy to use and to the point (particularly if compared to Portfolio Maestro - a new product of TradeStation).

Main functions available:
- Performance Summary
- Graphs: Closed Trade Equity Curve, Monthly Net Profit, Accumulative Monthly, Monthly Distribution,
- Drawdown Analysis: Closed Trades Drawdowns, Depth Distribution, Length Distribution
- Periodical Returns (Annual and Monthly)
- Market Analysis
- Monthly Return Matrix
- Correlation Analysis
- Trade List

The demo of version 1.0 is attached. PortfolioMergeDemo.zip

I look for the full version 1.0 or the demo version of 2.0 - Please PM me if you have it.

I played around with the archived website
http://wayback.archive.org/web/*/portfoliomerge.com

and found a purchase link for beta version 2.0
https://store2.esellerate.net/store/checkout/CustomLayout.aspx?s=STR5551664910&pc=&page=OnePageCatalog.htm

Looks like the online store still works.

I also found contact info of the developer, the first link has his gmail address:

*If* the order / purchase mechanism works 100%, I am a little concerned in purchasing a product not supported anymore.
Nobody answered my email sent to email address listed for the website owner.

I eventually took the chance and the selling webpage works fine. I now have a license for v2 Beta.

Portfolio Analyst

FYI, there is a new program called Portfolio Analyst that is similar to PortfolioMerge. It has a few more features as well. Link is here: Trademaid Systems.

The developer is very responsive to input - if you want a new or revised feature just shoot him an email.

I have no affiliation with either program, developer, etc.

Portfolio Analyst has a number of interesting features. see Trademaid Systems. Home of Turbo Trader
There is a new beta version just come out.
Normally you get to see correlation of systems on daily and monthly basis. However uncorrelated systems that consistently make money will appear correlated. Whats more important is how correlated are the systems on the days they loose.
On winning days with big moves, many systems tend to trade. So I've notice that on loosing days, the correlation is much lower. Its the loosing day correlation that I personally are most concerned about.
In the example shown, you can see a correlation of 0.68 on monthly returns.
Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).



I used to think that I shouldn't trade this combination. But now I see that the correlation of negative days is below zero. (good)

Whats also interesting is the graph of all draw-downs shown together.
You can check for when all systems are in draw-down together, or if other systems soften the draw down by being profitable at this time.

In the new beta copy of PA, there is extra feature like money management (not finished).
New features included day of week results, week of year, month of year (long and short etc)
Excel export, auto capital calculation.
Automatic portfolio selection to achieve the best net profit to draw-down may be in a future build.

@kiwibird do you have any experience with their system builder product?

The system builder works extremely well. Speed is about 10x the speed of Adaptrade build. Builder is was the fastest system builder on the market I had tried before this. GSB out of sample performance tends to be very good,
as the architecture and methodology is unique and very good. My experience with other systems builders is nearly all systems tank out of sample. The GSB forum seems also to be growing at a healthy pace.
There are normally Updates to the code a few times a week with new features and or bug fixes.
Support is also very good. There are a lot of Adaptrade Builder, Stratquant forum and TSL users on the forum too.
That fact that TSL users are on the forum is telling. TSL is about $60,000 to purchase and has no trial.
Currently there only is support for Tradestation and Multicharts, but in time Ninja, MT5 and others are intended to be supported.
The free S&P500 system included with the trial is also at new highs.
