Test the same algorithm with different security to found the best outcome

Back

Hello,

I want to test a cointegration pair trading algorithm, but I want it to test accross multiple pair. How can I input (passing by parametesr) some equities pairs.

Example:
1 - Stock_1 vs Stock_2 => Run backtest  1 => Get Result 1
2 - Stock_1 vs Stock_3 => Run backtest  2 => Get Result 2
...
N - Stock_N vs Stock_N+1 => Run backtest  => Get Result N

And then, base on on the result, pick the best one.,

Update Backtest

Hi Reginald,

Each backtest would have to currently be run individually. We are working on integrating a parameter optimization feature. It should be available shortly.

Excellent,

Can you elaborate more on how this feature will work (on a high level)?

Hi Reginald,

The feature will work by setting parameters for the backtest. The backtesting engine will then run iterations of the backtest, changing the parameter value on each iteration.

For the first prototype, we'll simply display the results in a searchable, sortable grid. Later, we'll include some kind of "parameter to target value" charting for testing sensitivity.

Best,
Derek Melchin
