Hello all,

I am looking for investors to invest in my mt4 strategy which is running live since June 2011 . Short description
100% systematic model based on AI & Technical Analysis
Trades on 1HR
Detailed Backtest reports available
Backtest 1 year
OOSample test 18months
Live since June 11 and performing as expected.
Net returns in OOS for 2 years approx 20% per year.

Investors can monitor through mt4 investor login or live statement uploaded through
mt4live website.

I am also considering the legal part of agreement with my advisors. Send me an e-mail if you are HNI.



regards
SG

Martinhoul I am surprised by your reply, can you explain me your reasoning behind it please?

The returns above are unleveraged ! with a sharpe above 2.

I have not mentioned other core stats which may make you biased. But statistically the system takes around 1000 trades a year producing net 2000 ticks after comms for last 3 years. That is more than enough for me to believe my intraday system is robust.

It's probably got to do with the length of the backtest + no real-money statements.

Most people in this game say they can make money but most of them can't back it up with a real-time track record.

Get the track record of at least 2 years and then you've got a chance.

Don't take it personally, it's the same for everyone, including me. No real-time statements, no real chance......

Anley,

I agree, but most of the systems out their have backtested results. However I have 1 year backtest and 18 months out of sample test.

I spoke to couple of HF's and they are happy with 6-12 months of live results and so working on it.

My first post says "investors can monitor live trades to mt4live statements" so eventually I am preparing my investors to monitor my live trades for the next 6-12 months.. so they can monitor this every day,week or monthly basis

Sure thing, sg... I don't belileve the backtest that you describe is anywhere near robust enough (too short and need to see what out-of-sample period was used). So I would suggest to you that, yes, it may be a good starting point, but no more than that. Moreover, regardless of the robustness of the backtest, I would be very skeptical about a "system" that has been running live for only a month and yet is already deemed to be fit for an outside investor. Finally, as you say, there's a whole lot of other questions that need to be answered before one has any degree of confidence in the setup.

Simple - back-testing means next to nothing in this context.

Get some independently-verified live data before looking for investors.

I don't wish to sound harsh, that's just the way I see it.

My personal view is that backtested data is useful IFF it is backed up my forward testing, and by that I mean if you do a 10000 trades backtest, and you do a 1000 trade live test, both curves need to look similar, then I consider the backtesting to be pseudo validated, not simply that they're both profitable, personally I have to show that it is representative of live results. Will post backtesting results on my journal if it's not too embarrassing :D, probably be a good lesson though.

Hotch,

The curves are similar . Forward testing is testing on a data which is new or in other words the system is not familiar. Similarly the out of sample data taken from period 08/2009 to 05/2011 has similar curves and consistent monthly return.

I have attached the out of sample stats. I am not bothered if I get investors or not, but its good that I am getting feedback of what market participants think (y)

What are you doing wasting your time on this board then?

Go work for the Hedge Fund(s). They'll probably give you a decent slug of money to manage + salary + bonus.

PS. No I'm not a systematic trader nor am I looking for money to manage.

sg, in terms of feedback, I think there might be a very old thread where I discuss a wholee bunch of criteria that people who look at these sorts of things evaluate. It may be helpful to you.

Maybe I should of put live testing as opposed to forward. I do agree with your method and do it myself, but I'd still not be comfortable before live testing it.

Also Martinghoul, any idea what this thread was called?
