The “Discover” tab is a great way to find strategy ideas. This page organizes and displays the strategies with the best results for different performance metrics.
You can still filter by the five categories on top. Unlike the “Top Backtest” tab, there are other strategies featured, including most winning trades, fewest losing trades, highest average credit received, and many more. These strategies don’t show up in the top backtests section because the “Discover” tab sorts by different metrics.
You can select any backtest and see the details of the strategy and how it has performed historically.
For example, this short put credit spread has the most consecutive wins of any strategy that has been run in the platform. (If a new strategy is created with more consecutive wins, it will replace this strategy).
For all backtests in the platform, you can view the P/L curve, Capital Risk chart, the amount of capital allocated to the strategy, and all the stats associated with the backtest results. Here, you can see this strategy had a winning streak of 217 consecutive profitable trades.
You can create a modified version of the strategy by selecting “Edit” in the top right corner.
This allows you to change any of the strategy’s inputs in the backtester. This is a great way to take another backtest’s framework and create a new version with different data.
When you are finished, select “Run Backtest.” The new version will be added to the top of the list in the “My Backtests” tab.
