Amibroker backtesting results provide profit table in the form of compounded values. However, most of the traders when comes to real life trading they prefer using fixed capital as position size. If you want to test the profitability of your system in Month on Month Absolute terms then this article is for you.
One of the reasons why we came up with Absolute Returns – Profitable table amibroker afl code last time. And this time at our trader’s workplace, yet again my partner asked: “is it possible to get a Month on Month Profit/Loss table in Absolute Percentage on Initial Capital rather than in compounded percentage terms?”
Amibroker stores the Profit Table Computation in 3.Profit Table under /formulas/reports folder. with a simple tweak one can code for Absolute Percentage on Initial Capital rather than in compounded percentage terms.
