The graph is $9.95 flat fees (questrade) the terminals are left= $1.00 flat fees (IBKR) and the $9.95 questrade... still looks to be winning

RE: How much actual gains are in this backtest?
no, but there's about 2338 trades over that 1yr backtest. I think the commissions would be minimal. It's set to NONE broker, is there a way to tell backtrader to auto adjust based on a given broker, or do I just manually adjust down the cash ie. setcash = getcash - $9.95 or whatever?
I hesitate to share my Github here... am PMing you @LFruth... guess no PMing here eh
I do know this entire bot fails should people take the max. 2 days they're allowed to submit their insider trading to SEC, or if SEC doesn't report in realtime when they receive submissions.. a little birdie in my mind seems to remember they report on Fridays for the week, which would cripple this strategy
How much actual gains are in this backtest?
It's buying/selling at 5% risk of cash balance, 5% trailing stop.. would like to discuss what the strategy is once I'm ready to sell it, but these results over about 6 months seem to indicate about $4400 growth in value but $101k+ growth in cash.. what's the actual growth? http://prntscr.com/o2vs2k
