Sorry my english. I see the total of each month in systems to evaluate the year, by example in my system 2009=+39,5%, 2010 = +65%, 2011 =+12%. But really, the profit since inception is about 200%. I dont understand why in C2 this value dont see.
Then i think, is important put the profit since inception, as an important variable to value systems. Are you thinking about put it in C2?
I agree Joaquin, total profit since inception (in percentage) should also be calculated for each C2 trading system, as well as the average monthly (and/or annual for older systems) return, in %.
Profit since inception means nothing.
CAR (compounded annual return) is on the site, still very one dimensional, more useful.
You wrote : "Profit since inception means nothing. CAR (compounded annual return) is on the site, still very one dimensional, more useful. "
Well, for losing systems, compounded annual return (CAR) means nothing too, wouldn’t you agree?
