Does the strategy help manage risk?

All trades come with a defined risk and capital allocation. Please refer to the Steady Strategies Deep Dive and Risk Management Discussion for full details. One risk mitigation component that’s important to highlight is that whenever trades are initiated by the strategy a corresponding price target and stop loss is also set. If the price target is met, a profit is taken, and what remains is assigned a trailing stop loss.

What is a stop loss and trailing stop loss?

A stop loss is an instruction to close out a trading position when the asset being traded reaches a set price. A trailing stop is a modification of a typical stop that can be set at a defined percentage or dollar amount away from an asset’s current market price.

What do the back testing statistics mean?
