No matter why you don’t show your backtest trades, it’s still a big question mark, no getting around that. I don’t think you are being dishonest about the results though, I hope that was not how you interpreted my statement, you have always been honest and forthcoming as far as I can tell.
When multiple positions are held at the same time, there is no way without seeing the trades to gauge what kind of drawdowns occurred in individual trades. There is no way to see if the fills are realistic, to know what you were trading and how liquid the instrument is. And, as I said above, no way to see if a margin call would have been generated in real life.
Oh, OK, thanks for the added legend on that first chart, completely different message with that information. Right before the chart you spoke about your previous incarnations of the system, so seeing a chart with no legend led one to think that was a chart of other versions.
I don’t come to C2 looking for systems like yours that get “decent” results during a bull market. Monthly fees are lot of money to spend to not see your money grow. I get that you are a Patient guy but you have to admit, your surge of subscibers came when your equity curve shot up. How many did you have while you had “decent” returns? How many will you maintain when you go back to “decent?”
My suggestion of adapting your system for bull markets was meant to be helpful.
