System Performance across all RD3 Versions

The following table lists the perfomance of each system trading the e-mini S&P 500 futures contract.
Each system was configured to trade up to 2 contracts. Some trades used a single contract.

Performance results from January 2006 though October 2021.

Net profit is after deducting costs for commissions. 

Slippage is estimated as noted.

RD3 Performance Matrix

NinjaTrader® has two ways to backtest: Strategy Analyzer® and Market Replay®. Strategy Analyzer® is great for backtesting long periods of time. Market Replay® is very accurate but takes a long time to backtest and consequently is better for a close up look at shorter periods of time. Here's how the RD3 family of strategies performs in Market Replay® trading the e-mini S&P 500 futures contract. Results are for 3 months of trading.
One, sometimes two contracts per trade. Commissions and slippage included.

The performance data presented assumes that the system continues to trade one (and sometimes two) contract(s) the entire time even though there's enough equity built over time to trade more contracts. Instead of always using the same number of contracts we can take advantage of account growth by allocating more contracts to trades.

How many contracts should we add for growth?

As the index increases the risk of holding contracts increases. A 1% correction in 2005 would be 1% of an index valued at 1,200, 12 points which translates to $600 for the e-mini. But in the year 2020 a 1% move in an index valued at 3,000 is 30 points or $1,500 for the e-mini. Because of this we would not want to add contracts for a fixed increase of equity gained. We also want to take into consideration the value of the index. 

This simulation is designed to take the price of the index into consideration when using equity build up to determine additional contracts.
