Understanding the grid

when I sort the grid according to “max drawdown”, I see my strategy in the list (6.3%); but when sorted by annual rate of return or profit factor (170% and 2:1), it does not show up… but I’m pretty sure I saw it over the weekend… It’s only 39 days old, is this a factor? Thank you in advance, M.

I can find you on the grid under all 3 metrics. One possibility that I always forget about is to make sure that I’ve reset the “All, Stocks, Forex, Futures, Options” filter at the top left corner of the grid.

thank you… yes, it is now there under all 3, it wasn’t earlier… maybe I just need to give things a little time to catch up…all is well

@mark_warren, it’s not just your imagination too, the Grid does have glitches. If you fill in some < or > values, you’ll sometimes find yours or some others’ strategies disappear off the grid without reason, and a subtle parameter change (e.g., from 2.3 to 2.31) might make the missing ones reappear, even though they might not have been close to that threshold. i can’t give you a clear example of this, but I’ve seen it many times.

last night while sorting by “futures” under “annual return”, there were many very new strategies up top, which is understandable… mine was listed at #25

this morning I noticed many, if not all of those are missing, including mine; but much further down on page 2, there are strategies only a couple weeks old, so that’s not it, therefore it is confusing.

I am visible under other metrics, and I can find it with a search. but somehow based on the numbers today I should be in the #3 spot under annual return… I’m sure it will sort itself out, like the topic says, I’m just trying to “understand the grid”

You are correct. When I clear all filters and click annual return (descending) Art of War is 54. When I select “futures” , I cannot find it. Nice looking chart BTW. I am following :slight_smile:
