168 – How to optimize strategies for robustness (properly) – John Ehlers

DSP and Cycles expert John Ehlers, joins us to discuss all things optimization, including:

  • Why optimization is a statistical process and how to assess the results properly (including what to look for at “the 50% line”),
  • How much data you should REALLY use for reoptimization and why many traders use way too much data (and the impact it has on trading strategies),
  • The 3 best fitness functions to use in reoptimization and the dangers of a popular metric that can lead to over trading,
  • What the speed of optimization results can potentially tell you about strategy robustness,
  • The only 2 things that count when assessing a strategy (yup, just 2!),
  • Plus, much more.
