Result with optimised input values

With the fast moving average set to 1 bar (=closing price itself) and the slow m
oving
average set to 44 bars you get a steadily growing equity curve (Figure 3.7A). Th
is result
is confirmed with the underwater-equity curve which always quickly recovers afte
r every
drawdown (Figure 3.7B). The biggest drawdown happened in November 2003. It was,
with 8%, only half as big as the drawdown of more than 15% which we got with the
nonoptimised input parameters (10/30).
