Curious which GC algo you'd trade if you had to pick one. RTYvolumeRTY is not one of the choices.

For me, there is not enough data. Give me 10 years of trades and then I can make a call. This entire year is a black swan year in my humble opinion, so the results are going to be skewed. The other problem I see here is the ROE is not realistic, as you can't trade gold on an account that size.

RTYvolumeRTY looks the best to me. I strongly consider profit factor, but I work from 'adjusted profit factor', which is a number TradeStation spits out as a worse-case scenario profit factor. However, I would also want to run these trades through Monte Carlo analysis, take a look at max drawdown and risk of ruin. Other points of concern is in-sample versus out-of-sample data.... trying to avoid curve fitting.

But that's just me.

If I HAD to pick i'd probably go with "RTYvolumeGC_3+4" as it has the largest sample size and looks like it has the smallest std dev (though just did back of the envelope based on your avg win and avg loss).

I would look at the ratio of the largest loss to average win all things being equal

RTYvolumeGC_2 had a starting capital of $10,000 made $50,150 and had a largest loss of $18,700 but has a risk of ruin of 0? With 32 trades that trade is 3.1% of your trades so I would have expected the risk of ruin to be quiet high?
