Another big advantage of running an algo is that you can construct an algo portfolio. An algo portfolio is just running a number of algos on different markets at the same time.
The purpose of spreading my eggs into different baskets rather than picking the best basket and maxing it is that in this way I hope to smooth out my drawdowns and to compensate for a month of lesser performance from any one market. I want to "guarantee" myself a minimum level of monthly income, as much as that is possible.
I did a retest over the week-end and this is what the revised performance backtesting shows:
The backtesting I did was to implement the walk forward analysis that I decided on after considerable testing. All I need to do is to implement that every month and let Flo do her thing. As I'm running this in the cloud I just check her every morning before the open and let her run unattended all day, just checking that my VPS is reachable a few times a day.
