VX9 Equity

NinjaTrader® has two ways to backtest: Strategy Analyzer® and Market Replay®. Strategy Analyzer® is great for backtesting long periods of time. Market Replay® is very accurate but takes a long time to backtest and consequently is better for a close up look at shorter periods of time. Here’s how the VX9 strategy performs in Market Replay® trading the E-mini Nasdaq-100 index futures contract. Results are for trading each contract for the full 3 months of their lives.
One, sometimes two contracts per trade. Commissions and slippage included.

The micro e-mini Nasdaq-100:

VX9 trades the MNQ


The performance data presented assumes that the system continues to trade one (and sometimes two) contract(s) the entire time even though there’s enough equity built over time to trade more contracts. Instead of always using the same number of contracts we can take advantage of account growth by allocating more contracts to trades.

How many contracts should we add for growth?

As the index increases the risk of holding contracts increases. A 1% correction in the calendar year 2010 would be 1% of a NASDAQ index valued at 2,000, 20 points at $20 a point which translates to $400 for the NQ. But in the year 2021 a 1% move in the NASDAQ index valued at 15,000 is 150 points at $20 a point which translates to $3,000 for the NQ. Because of this we would not want to add contracts for a fixed increase of equity gained. A 1% move in 2010 would have been $400 and in 2021 its $3,000.  We also want to take into consideration the value of the index when considering how many contracts to add so that we avoid over allocating the account. This formula is more conservative in adding contracts to the progression as it respects this risk.

This simulation is designed to take the price of the index into consideration when using equity build up to determine additional contracts.

Small Accounts

Small accounts can trade the MNQ (the micro E-mini Nasdaq) using the VX9.  The best way to grow a small account is by reinvesting the gains back into the system.  In the example below the system started with a single MNQ contract per trade and added a MNQ contract for every $5,000 of equity the system returned in profits.  For the drawdown periods, the number of contracts traded is drawn down with it.  Trading beginning May 2019, when the MNQ was introduced.

VX9 on MNQ Compounding

The VX9 has 2 possible entries, but in the example above we set the 2nd entry to zero contracts and never take the 2nd, even better, trade entry.
