QuantConnect Strategy Metrics

Back

Hello everyone, I am new here and trying to write new strategies. I am a good computer engineering student working on robotics now, but I want to see the opportunities(money) in the financial fields.

Currently, I am trading in my home country(non-US/non-EU) daily from open price to open price like a swing trader with my algorithmic signals. Yesterday I have converted my strategy and uploaded it to QuantConnect.

However, I do not know anything about the backtesting metrics. I am using S&P500 companies(505 stocks) with 0.01% of the portfolio and trying 2019(1y period) with 2015-2019(5y period). I have 2 different working strategies with a difference of a single variable.

Can you tell me what the metrics are saying?

Hi Ozan,

Several of the metrics on our backtest view page have been defined in our documentation and discussion threads. Below, I direct you to the appropriate pages for these and provide an explanation for the remaining metrics.

Direction Score, Magnitude Score, Estimated Alpha Value, and Insight Confidence: Explained in our documentation.  
Probabilistic Sharpe Ratio (PSR): “The probability that the estimated Sharpe ratio is greater than a chosen benchmark” [see discussion thread].
Unrealized: The unrealized profit-and-loss of the strategy.
Fees: The costs incurred by trading the strategy.
Net Profit: Net profit of trading the strategy
Return: Return on investment from trading the strategy.
Equity: Total value of cash and held assets.
Holdings: Total value held assets.
Volume: Cumulative value of traded assets.

Best,
Derek
