Best source for trading signal win % and other statistical measures of success

What is the best source for information on the success ratios of various trading indicators / strategies? I'm interested in the validity of basic moving average cross (trend following) methods, MACD as well as advanced volatility trading measures.

QuantConnect/Lean provides the following statistics: Average Loss, Average Win, Compounding Annual Return, Drawdown, Expectancy, Net Profit, Sharpe Ratio, Loss Rate, Win Rate, Profit-Loss Ratio, Alpha, Beta, Annual Standard Deviation, Annual Variance, Information Ratio, Tracking Error and Treynor Ratio.

Sharpe Ratio is an industry standard to evaluate an strategy performance. However, the best evaluator depends on the strategy goal. For instance, if we do not want our strategy to follow the market performance, we would want a low beta.

Did you look at the literature about trading performance? I believe it is a vast one!
