The trading objectives of the Active Trend Trading System are the following:
Yearly Return: 40% trading top quality growth stocks and TNA
Winning Percentage: 60%
These objectives were established over a 10 year modeling period, see Pillar 5: Defined Expectations model results.
The linked results show how well we traded the system in a live environment and how close we came to achieving the system objectives as established by modeling data.
While the Active Trend Trading System did outperform the S&P over the test period, we do not represent this as a guarantee of future performance.
