AlgoLab stock index can be more profitable on a risk adjusted basis than buying stocks Trading Systems Performance Expectations Algorithmic trading systems have been developed by optimizing system rules, and parameters on historical data. This does not guarantee that past performance will be as profitable, or will exhibit similar characteristics to real-time trading results. Given enough variables, it is possible to curve fit a system to historical data, and any relationship between those rules and future, unseen data may be random. AlgoLab has taken steps to reduce the number of variables and system rules to reduce the degrees of freedom which will reduce the chance of curve fitting. Curren

optimizing rules and variables over an entire data set and obtaining a profitable result does not say anything about how that set of rules will perform on unseen, future data. It's possible - no, it's relatively easy, to optimize a single variable like a trailing stop to turn a trading system that should perform no better than chance, to an awe inspiring, hand rubbing, $ signs in the eyes gold mine.
