### Return/Maximum Drawdownβ

Selecting this setting for optimisation will optimise your strategies for Return/Maximum Drawdown.

#### What is Return over Maximum Drawdown?β

Return over maximum drawdown (RoMaD) is a risk-adjusted return metric used as an alternative to the Sharpe Ratio or Sortino Ratio. Return over maximum drawdown is used mainly when analyzing hedge funds.

### Expectancy Ratioβ

Selecting this strategy for optimisitation will optimise your strategies for maximum expectancy ratio.

#### What is the Expectancy ratio?β

The Expectancy Ratio is a key metric used to measure the performance of trading strategies. It is calculated by dividing the Average Win (AW) by the Average Loss (AL).
