How performance is calculated?


Growth/Balance chart


Advanced Statistics

Expectancy - Expectancy tells you what you can expect to make (win or lose) on every trade.


Standard Deviation - Standard Deviation is a statistical measure of volatility. It shows how much variation or dispersion there is from the mean (Expectancy).


Z-Score - Z-Score is used for calculating the ability of a trading system to generate wins and losses in streaks. It enables us to see if the streaks generated are of a random pattern or not.What we're looking to see is a z-score value greater than 1.96 or less than -1.96 (Equal to 95% probability or better, as shown in the table below).

|Z-Score| (Absolute Value) Certainty Level
3.00 99.73%
2.58 99.00%
2.33 98.00%
2.17 97.00%
2.05 96.00%
2.00 95.45%
1.96 95.00%
1.64 90.00%

While z-score tells us if the streak of losses/wins are random or not, the sign simply tells us if the dependence is positive or negative, meaning:
Z-Score negative - dependence is positive.
Z-Score positive - dependence is negative.


Positive dependence - a profit will be followed by a profit and a loss by a loss.
Negative dependence - a loss will be followed by a profit and a profit by a loss.


And how certain can we be that it will happen? This is the percentage that is shown to you in your system's z-score value. So for example, if z-score = 2.17(97.0%), it means there is a 97% confidence level that a loss will be followed by a profit and a profit by a loss (negative dependence). In such case you would want to miss a trade after a profit and take a trade after a loss to maximize profits and minimize losses.
