Each strategy comes with trading rules in plain English and a strategy code of your choice. Available right now are **Amibroker, Tradestation, and plain English – unless stated. (Tradingview and Python** **are on demand for a small fee.)** (*It is important to note that while every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information provided, we cannot guarantee that the results obtained using this trading strategy will be replicated when using other software platforms or trading systems.*)

The historical performance and figures may not indicate the strategy’s future success (they are hypothetical). One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are prepared with the benefit of hindsight. The strategy is only backtested on the indicated asset; a backtest has limitations, and strategies might fail after backtesting (despite all strategies having at least one year of incubation before release). You should always do your own due diligence and research and use a demo account before you start. If you are unsure, please read our full disclaimer. Trading involves risk, and it’s important to diversify your trading and not put all your eggs in one basket. **Any single trading strategy should be no more than 2% of your portfolio. Always trade small and don’t use leverage.**

Commissions, slippage, and stops are not included in the backtests unless stated (estimated commissions and slippage), and simulations are done at the close unless otherwise stated (how to trade at the close – or alternative entries). You should know your commission rate before you order. The results are usually slightly worse if the trade is done at the next day’s opening (after a signal).

The equity curves show 100,000 invested and compounded from the start until today, i.e., profits are reinvested, and we use a logarithmic scale. For example, if you invest 100,000 and make 5,000 on the first trade, the next trade invests 105,000, and so on. X-axis shows time, and y-axis shows equity (how to read an equity curve).
