HISTORICAL PERFORMANCE - MARKET REPLAY
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 VX9 strategy performs in Market Replay® trading the E-mini Nasdaq-100 index futures contract. Results are for trading each contract for the full 3 months of their lives.

HISTORICAL PERFORMANCE - SMALL ACCOUNTS
Small accounts can trade the MNQ (the micro E-mini Nasdaq) using the VX9.

The VX9 can be run in a conservative mode that focuses on monthly returns. In these examples we'll continue to use the micro contract, the MNQ contract that specifies a $2 point value.
Here we see the AtsVX9 setup with a monthly PnL template (VX9v6_MNQ_MONTHLY template 2023-10-13.xml included) trading "5 plus 5" MNQ contracts. 5 contracts for entry 1, and 5 for entry 2. Slippage and commission included.
The VX9v6_MNQ_MONTHLY_IG5 template (included) is a more aggressive version that goes for more trades... and gets more profit.
MPnLID 5+5. Slippage and commission included.
There's no minimum contract requirement. You can trade as few as one contract.
THE POWER OF COMPOUNDING
So far all results presented are always trading the same number of contracts. This is fine for generating income. Another way to go is to keep the money earned in the account and use it to trade more contracts.
We’re trading the NASDAQ-100 index through futures contracts. The micro contract moves $2 for every point the index moves. If the index moves 1% while the index is valued at 15,000 then that’s 150 points. At $2 a point that’s $300.
Now consider if the index was valued at 10,000. The same 1% move is 100 points. At $2 a point that’s $200.
Because of this we want to take into consideration the index price when deciding how many contracts to trade. This simulation does exactly that. It’s using 25% of the index price as the threshold at which to add more contracts. So if the index is 10,000, 25% of that is 2,500. This means the trading account must grow by $2,500 before adding a contract. When the index is 15,000 then the account must grow by $3,000 before adding a contract.
Here we start off trading 2 MNQ contracts. Only 2 MNQ contracts are traded for the first 286 trades (about 2 ½ months). Then the system starts trading 4 MNQ contracts. By the end of the run it’s trading 200 MNQ contracts.

Automatic News Retrieval
The VX9 is not limited just to algorithmic price series analysis. The market reacts when scheduled news is released. The VX9 trades around these events by closing positions before, pausing trade entries or not trading at all. We rigorously tested these decisions on a historical database and found that by avoiding these events in the way that we do the performance of the system is measurably enhanced. News events that are scanned for include:
Weekly Unemployment Claims Monthly Jobs Report FOMC Policy Decisions FOMC Chairman Speeches Annual Economic Forum at Jackson Hole
You don’t need to do anything special to activate this feature. It is fully automated for both back testing and real time trading.
We provide, for free, in the VX9 package a news reader indicator that lets you view news events on your chart.
