Assumptions Made in Calculating Trading System Returns
1. Prices used are from the close of each trading day. The next day's open price, at which you buy or sell, will differ from the previous day's close.
2. Bid-ask spreads and transaction costs are ignored.
3. Start date was December 31, 2011. Returns would have been different for other start dates.
4. It is assumed that the past is exactly like the future. We all know that isn't true.
