Hi,

I downloaded the community scorecard visualizers which of course are great, but I was wondering if there is a way to measure the maximum duration of a drawdown. So this would be the maximum number of bars a drawdown is running. I would like to rank by optimization tests based on this.

If there isn't I'll just write one myself, I'm just wondering if I'm missing something obvious already available.

Thanks,
Wouter

Hi,

Although your topic stated "visualizer", what you're asking for is a scorecard. (The built-in Drawdown tab shows each drawdown duration and the Performance+ tab shows the max.drawdown duration.)

For ranking and optimization, I'll include the max.drawdown duration in Community Scorecard (and perhaps rename the library to MS123 Scorecard) in the next update.
