I'm starting a round of backtesting and wanted to ask the community for guidance on how to set up backtesting. Do you test how you trade or trade how you test (in theory, both should be the same, but Jim has a saying about theory and practice...)? Do you follow a complete, rule-based system for adjustments, leave room for user discretion, or how do you set up your standards? I'm starting to test a Road Trip clone (since I don't have the full guidelines except what's in the presentations, I'm assuming I won't be trading the actual RTT) and curious if this, or other BWBs have testing strategies that you guys follow. I'll be using OV and ToS for some analysis. My thoughts are the following: -Look to open 75-85 DTE and target entering on a down day of at least 10 points, since it is a Vega negative trade. -Trade anytime after 9:30am Eastern time and plan to close trades after 2:30pm Eastern -Use monthlies, weeklies, and quarterlies -Total risk (upper profit/lower loss) 3.5% or less -RH on down days when the RH will not bring the BE@ exp or 1/3 of max loss closer than 60 points. Any other considerations either for the RTT or similar BWB or flies? Suggestions appreciated.
