Topic: Measuring Strategy Performance with Custom Metrics and Charts / Monitoring Your Strategy’s Health Whilst Amibroker comes with many useful metrics and charts out of the box in its backtest report, there are often other dimensions and statistical measures with which we’d like to measure performance. In this presentation, Alan will walk through the steps required to build out your own customised set of charts and metrics that you can use to measure your strategy’s performance. Using elements of the custom backtester as well as low-level graphics to build trade-level and high-level metrics, this will act as a useful primer in getting to grips with how to translate any metric you care to use, into something that can be used and reused in your own personal reporting. In the second part of the talk Alan will discuss how we can use elements of these custom metrics to measure the ongoing health of our strategies, to gauge if they are outperforming or underperforming. He will also provide some guidance in the ways this data can be used to adjust exposure levels in the markets, to better control risk.
