I'm in the top 1% of the community!

This was a very simple exercise. Buy at the open, sell 15 mins before the close, and set a stop loss at 5%. This backtest is completely datamined and curve fitted. Please don't use this other than for a good laugh! Anyone else care to share their most ridiculous backtest?

Or, you could have just bought NUGT on Jan 4 at $26.48, and sold on Apr 25 for $79.85 for 301% return.

I tried that, but it only puts you in the top 2%. Go figure!

Cool :) We'll have to update the ranking algorithm.. its actually a tricky problem to solve. We can't adjust for people faking so its purely indicative only :) Also ranked #1 means "1st equal"; so there may be 1000 other algorithms that are also ranked 1.

Curious, would the ranking factor in the duration of tested dates? That can help prevent giving the false sense of a good algorithm due to overfitting? I for one am a fan of not creating false sense for fellow amateur traders.

Yes I’m going back to a thread from 2016 but if anyone’s still alive I actually just got the #1 ranked algorithm :).  Except I actually tried to make it real and not datamined.  Did you guys ever get to updating the ranking system?
