Try and aim for more than 75 fitness :) This means the algorithm trades often, has more than 5 years backtest, and has a high sharpe ratio.

Alpha submissions don't require high fitness but they should be profitable when using realistic fee models.

Jared, can I PM you my backtest link? I'm going in the right direction, but my buy/hold strategy doesn't work like I'm expecting. EqualWeighting construction. I'm trying to go long as long as my indicator > 0, and sell the asset if the indicator < 0. Stay flat until indicator moves >0 and go long again. I'm not seeing that at all. The model is profit taking every day, which is not what I want.

I'd like some help tuning it up so I can submit to the marketplace.

Thanks!

Hey Tim! I personally can't review backtests like that but we try our best to review in support@quantconnect.com - shoot a backtest over there and one of the team will help ASAP.

We're also working on a real-time chat system and starting a discussion thread to help you team up with another member from the community!
