How can I see the rank No.1 algorithm in Quantconnect?

There is a statement when I backtest my strategy
"Your algorithm is ranked #60,906, and is better than 47% of the community."
Where can I see the rank No.1 algorithm in Quantconnect?
Update Backtest








Hey Alan! No sorry the algorithms are all private :) For obvious reasons. Only algorithms people share to the forums can be cloned,

Jared - I totally agree on the I.P. being kept private.

I think it would be valuable to the community to see the stats for the top tier algorithms. Maybe the top 100 and/or top 1%?

@MarcD'aoust I'm not sure I agree. The appearance of any information that is helpful for either reverse engineering or hacking should be avoided to guarantee the upmost safety of I.P.

I also totally agree that the IP should be kept private. I have spent a year learning Lean and developing an algorithm that performs well enough for me to put into production.

If it performs well for a period of time, I might seek financing to scale it up.

Only an irrational quant would publish when he finds an edge. One of the reasons I picked QC in the first place is because of the policy on confidentiality of IP.

Properly reported stats is valuable to compare against. More than often I would run algorithm with very short duration which produces crazy unreal stats. Is this feed into overall stats ? Is stats only against live traded strategy? It is valuable to know how this stats are computed otherwise it provides no value.

The ranking formula takes into account the length of a backtest, so longer backtests have more weight.
