This 100 percent loss would be the realized return if we had traded the strategy back in 2001, and the 388 percent return is an inflated backtest return that can never be realized. If the author did not specifically mention that the data used include delisted stocks, then we can assume the backtest suffers from survivorship bias and the return is likely to be inflated. Example 4: A neural net trading model that has about 100 nodes generates a backtest Sharpe ratio of 6. My alarms always go off whenever I hear the term neural net trading model, not to mention one that has 100 nodes.

Clearly, the shape of the returns distribution curve has something to do with the success of the strategy. ) The third hypothesis test involves randomizing the long and short entry dates, while keeping the same number of long trades and short trades as the ones in the backtest, respectively. *marketRet/holddays; 21 if (mean(ret_sim)>= mean(ret)) numSampleAvgretBetterOrEqualObserved=... numSampleAvgretBetterOrEqualObserved+1; end end There is not a single sample out of 100,000 where the average strategy return is greater than or equal to the observed return.

But the unadjusted continuous price series will show a price of p(T ) at T, and q(T + 1) at T + 1. If you calculate P&L and return the usual way, you would have calculated the erroneous values of q(T + 1) − p(T ) and (q(T + 1) − p(T ))/p(T ), respectively. To prevent this error, the data vendor can typically back-adjust the data series to eliminate the price gap, so that the P&L on T + 1 is p(T + 1) − p(T ). This can be done by adding the number (q(T + 1) − p(T + 1)) to every price p(t) on every date t on or before T, so that the price change and P&L from T to T + 1 is correctly calculated as q(T + 1) − ( p(T ) + q(T + 1) − p(T + 1)) = p(T + 1) − p(T ).
