Strategy of Strategy – Combine Tool
The Combine Tool is provided to allow users a way to easily and quickly see how multiple strategy portfolios performed together. For example you may develop an asset allocation, moving average, and rotational strategy that you think compliment each other well, with the Combine Tool you can upload the daily equity export for each strategy and select different weightings for each upload to view the combined performance and make real assessments as to how well each portfolio complimented the others.
Strategy of Strategy – Moving Average Tool
The Portfolio Moving Average Tool allows users to upload a ‘stock’ and a ‘cash’ portfolio from our other tools output section, when the ‘stock’ portfolio’s equity curve is below the defined moving average, the ‘cash’ portfolio is invested in instead of the ‘stock’ portfolio.
Strategy of Strategy – Rotation and Adaptive Asset Allocation Tool
The Rotation and Adaptive Asset Allocation Tool allows users to upload up to 10 strategies equity curves from other apps and rotate or apply adaptive asset allocation to these strategies, so you can determine when and how much each strategy gets invested in. The settings on this tool are very similar to our Advanced Rotation Tool.
Step 1: Build strategies you would like to test with our ‘Strategy of Strategy’ tools in any of our other tools.
Step 2: Download the equity spreadsheet. Be sure not to re-save file once downloaded as Excel reformats spreadsheets.
Step 3: Once you have downloaded all the strategies you would like to to test with our strategy of strategy tools, proceed to the settings section for instructions on how to upload these files (below).
SETTINGS - COMBINE TOOL
File Upload List
Upload up to 25 separate equity curves to be tested. If the files have different start and/or end dates don’t worry, the output will show only results when all equity curves have data available. Important Note: Once you save the daily equity report from another tool, do not open and save it using Excel, the formatting becomes damaged and will not longer work with the Combined Tool! If you want to use the Combine Tool save a daily equity report file, do not open it or save it, then upload it to the Combine Tool.
Enter a corresponding weight value in percent for each file uploaded. If a 50 is entered on line 1, and a file for a Rotational Backtest is uploaded for file #1, this means that 50% of the portfolio will be composed of the Rotational Backtest uploaded in file #1. The total weight of all portfolios is displayed all the bottom of the settings area near the Run Backtest button, this button will show you the total weighting % of your portfolio, values over 100% (leveraging) is allowed.
