    strategy analyzer question

    Hello. I'm trying to familiarize myself with the strategy analyzer.
    I have created simple example where I buy an instrument, then just hold it. no stops, no profit target, etc.
    When I run the strategy analyzer, it shows the max drawdown as the total realized value on the trade (e.g. the max drawdown equals the net profit), whereas I know based on the performance of the instrument that there have been unrealized drawdowns greatly in excess of that.
    I always assumed the max drawdown was based on mtm, but here it seems based only on realized.
    Can you clarify?

    Hello stewarco,

    Thank you for the note.

    Below the formula used to calculate max drawdown can be found along with all other statistic formulas used in NinjaTrader:

    The Max Drawdown is calculated as follows:

    Code:
    Drawdown = local maximum realized profit – local minimum realized loss
    Max Drawdown = single largest Drawdown
    Please let me know if I can assist further.

        Hello stewarco,

        Thanks for the reply.

        You would need the Maximum Adverse Excursion to get the lowest profit that your trades had throughout the duration of the trade.
