An options strategy such as this ran totally eliminate such terminal losses. 12445. Now we will take the exact same trades, only, using the Black-Scholes stock option pricing model from Chapter 5, we will convert the entry prices to theoretical option prices. 8875day year (this is the average number of weekdays in a year). 5 of a year left till expiration (6 months) and that they are at-the-money. In other words, that there is a strike price corresponding to the exact entry price. Buying long a call when the system goes long the underlying, and buying long a put when the system goes short the underlying, using the parameters of the option pricing model mentioned, would have resulted in a trade stream as follows: If we were to determine the optimal f on this stream of trades, we would due!

19b) where Estimated TWR = ((AHPR ^ 2-V) ^ (1/2)) ^ N N = The number of periods. AHPR = The arithmetic mean HPR. SD = The population standard deviation in HPRs. , the HPR) is constant, which is not the case in trading. The real growth function in trading (or any event where the HPR is not constant) is the multiplicative product of the HPRs. Assume we are trading EGM = (AHPR ^ 2 - SD ^ 2) ^ (1/2) V = The population variance in HPRs. 19) are equivalent. The insight gained is that we can see here, mathematically, the tradeoff between an increase in the arithmetic average trade (the HPR) and the variance in the HPRs, and hence the reason that the 70% 1:1 system did better than the 10% 28:1 system!

50? " The reason that the optimal f is figured on the basis of contracts that are infinitely divisible, which may not be the case in real life. 02) T = AAT/GAT * Biggest Loss/-f where T = The threshold to the geometric. AAT = The arithmetic average trade. GAT = The geometric average trade, f = The optimal f(0 to 1). 00. Figure 2-1 shows the threshold to the geometric for a game with a 50% chance of winning $2 and a 50% chance of losing $1. Notice that the trough of the threshold to the geometric curve occurs at the optimal f.
