Hi Mykola,

Right now we are in the process of fixing a bug, but a Healthy Trade Ratio looks for more trades than days an algorithm is running for. The Healthy Trade Ratio indicator is not a strict metric or requirement for anything, but it is helpful to keep an eye on to make sure your algorithm is functioning properly. Maintaining a health trade ratio mostly comes down to ensuring you are working with the proper data resolution and universe for a strategy. Placing one trade and holding a security for a long period of time might be profitable, but is not a good trades/days ratio. However, if you have an algorithm that runs 100 days and places 99 trades, this is not necessarily a bad feature, but it will not officially meet the metric. Again, this is a general guide to making sure that users examine important features of their algorithms or Alpha submissions that go beyond pure profitability.
