Disclaimers: SignalSolver can reveal signals which have shown extremely high returns, but this is a somewhat misleading feature of backtesting--such returns are un-realizable in practice as history does not repeat itself exactly. Plus, the results are highly optimized. In actuality, the algorithms found are often short-lived and can lead to losses. Views expressed on this site belong solely to the author(s). Past performance of any algorithm doesn’t guarantee future results.
