If you rank those products in volatility order isn't NQ significantly more volatile than the others?


FABRICATORX View Post
You know what, I have no idea lol. Is it?

VIX index values for each index... so yes NQ is the most volatile of the products you listed

VXN (~NQ) 18.07
VIX (~ES) 16.05
VXD (~YM) 14.7
TYVIX (~ZN) 4.96

The odd thing is usually MORE volatility in a market makes it EASIER to create a strategy...

But if I may, let me put my question in other way: For a mechanical trader all the rules to define a strategy are absolutely accurate, no exceptions. Once the strategy is 'manufactured' there's a mechanical process to test it and this last process should have its accurate rules. Here's the question. On these rules do you consider the results in just one market or do you expect some minimum for other markets as well?

Well, again thanks!

I look at results for that market.

If results in other markets (if I even look) are good, that makes me feel a bit better.

If results in other markets (if I even look) are poor, that probably won't make me throw the system away.

I realize the pitfalls in this approach, but I have never been able to correlate future performance to this kind of metric.

Hello Kevin.

From the strategies that you created by your Strategy Factory rules, how many did you have to quit trading because they reached your max drawdown limit? Can you at least give a rough percentage? Thanks.

Sorry, did not see this until just now. Somehow I don;t get e-mail notifications anymore...


Anyhow, I don't keep stats on this - I probably should. If I had to guess, I bet about 10% of strategies I stop trading because of poor performance.

Its weird, because it is not showing up as spam either. I did get a "here are your preferences" e-mail last week, though. I'll have to play around with it. Used to work fine...

In the last 7 days, you've been sent 48 emails and all were delivered successfully. The problem is on your side...



Here are the times for the most recent emails to you help you troubleshoot:

It should also be noted that on Oct 16 8:48am you Unsubscribed from some things (can't tell what), but I notice your thread subscription settings are now set for no email by default.

You should check your profile settings and subscription settings if you did this by mistake.

Your email server is responding with 452's, which is an out of resources/out of memory error.

I also see GL appended, which could be greylisting. That's fine, I use greylisting on my server as well to reduce spam -- but your greylist isn't setup correctly if we aren't automatically whitelisted after a while of sending emails. Otherwise, all emails would be delayed continuously.



Your server is also an open relay for spam it would seem according to a quick test.
