Proposal for backtesting the ACD trading system by Mark Fisher and related programs

About what I can provide for you

If you are trading in certain securities, then you probably want to know if the ACD system is profitable for them. This can be seen on the chart of accumulated profit, as shown in Fig.4.1 or Fig.8.2. I can provide you with similar charts for the securities you are interested in. To draw this chart, my program will calculate Points A and C for these securities. For this, I will use historical data on the securities of 1-minute bars for 1000 days or about 4 years. You probably want to receive Points A and C updates. They will be updated every six months, and in case of a change in the price step. Why Points A and C are calculated based on 1000 days and updated every six months, is explained in chapter 9.

You can add the calculation of the optimal opening range. The opening range will be found for Point A, since it is much more common than Point C, and brings more profit. Points A and C will be calculated for the opening ranges of 10, 20, 30, 40 minutes, and the opening range that brings the most profit will be highlighted. You can read more about calculating Points A and C in chapter 2 and chapter 4, respectively.

Thus, I can provide you with charts of the accumulated profit for securities you are interested in, as well as updated Points A and C and, if desired, the optimal opening range.

In addition, I can provide you with trading programs related to the ACD system, and not only with it, which are described in the Programs menu.

I can also check the effectiveness of another trading system in which you are interested.

If you have any questions, please send them to  and I will be happy to answer them.
