Step 1: Enter the tickers you would like to be in your portfolio, one per line. Step 2: Enter the weightings in % for the corresponding fund ticker entered in Step 1. Step 3: Select a start and end date for the simulation. Step 4: Select the type and length of the moving average filter you would like applied to each fund in the portfolio. Step 5: The main moving average will trigger a move to the cash fund when the price of a stock is below this moving average, if you would like to only move to cash when 2 moving averages cross, select the 'Use Second Moving Average' box and setup the second moving average length. Step 6: Select if you would like to use moving average channels. Channels invests in the stock fund when the price is above the moving average band or as long as the price hasn't fallen below the lower band, once it is below the lower band it will invest in the cash fund as long as the price remains below the upper band.

Click Button to Load Cash Fund below:


When a fund in your portfolio is below the moving average (setup below) this fund will be invested instead of the poorly performing fund. Note: cash filter is applied to funds total value including dividend/split adjustments.



If channels are used the strategy will wait for the price to cross above the upper channel to invest, and below the lower channel to de-invest.
Buy will be performed when price of fund exceeds the moving average + the % entered here
Sell (go to cash fund) will be performed when price of fund drops below the moving average - the % entered here

If a second Moving Average (the short moving average) is used the logic will wait for the 2 moving averages to cross.

Selecting this input will limit drawdown to the input percent by investing in the cash filter fund if the strategy equity ever goes below the set drawdown limit. Keep in mind this condition is only checked at each period end, so drawdown may be larger than this limit.

Monte Carlo Simulation

Runs a Monte Carlo Simulation based on backtest results. Backtest Results give a value for expected return % (CAGR), and volatility %. Using these two numbers the Monte Carlo calculates future expected returns. Since the values used to calculate are based on backtest results the model is only accurate if the backtest is an accurate representation of the future.

These values are used in the simulation to determine expected future performance, thus the Monte Carlo is only as accurate as these numbers are accurate.
