Backtesting Futures Strategies in Quantopian

Posted by David Bean on

We backtest our latest strategy CounterTrend MAX in Quantopian. Quantopian uses the Python programming language. One of the things I like about the Quantopian platform is that it lets you test multiple markets in the same backtest. We test the E-mini S&P, E-mini Dow, E-mini Nasdaq, Gold, and Crude Oil. We show this in the video and in the results below.

One of the secrets of what I do when I develop a strategy and need programming help is that I don't send...

Swing Trade and Buying the Dips

Posted by David Bean on

The VIX Swing E-mini S&P has been on a hot streak the last couple of years. It is hard to believe that you can buy the dips on a swing trade basis using this strategy and have less than a 5k drawdown intra-trade and closed trade basis.

At 10:32 am EST, the VIX hit 9.37, taking out the 9.39 level from 2006, making its second lowest all time low (the lowest low is 8.89 in December 1993).  The strategies had a challenging day as the stock indexes took long...
