You guys are thorough backtesters, and it makes me proud.  So to give you an extra layer of measurement, we discuss how drawdown is interpreted, and what you should aim to avoid.  We also discuss the impending recession, and somebody is a year old today!

 

Some things may be a bit unclear, and I was a bit unfair on the Investopedia article.

The Blog for this episode explains it all further -

Choosing a Forex broker is a big decision, and the first choice you'll likely have to make is whether to go with a Dealing Desk broker or an ECN broker.  They operate differently on the back end, so let's go over the differences and dispel some fears.  Plus, no more AskVP!!!

The majority of people who come to AskVP either aren't being truthful when they check the little box on the form saying they've consumed all the material before asking a question, don't know how to use Google, or want a freebie.  VP takes this time to vent because Dr. Phil said venting is healthy.

We've talked about backtesting an indicator by itself, and even a few different indicators at a time.  Now let's talk about putting the whole thing together.
