NOTE: In NeuroShell Trader, open the chart named “Example 17 – Buy and Hold Comparison” which is the basis for following example:
For this example, we took the previous one (Example 16 ) and retrained it the next day. Then we added a “Buy and Hold” trading strategy to the chart. The buy and hold strategy has a long entry condition that is true on the first bar, namely Close=Close. It has a long exit condition that is never true, namely Close=0. We inserted the equity curve for this strategy, changed the color to red, changed it to a line graph from an area graph, and dragged it on top of the neural net equity curve to highlight the difference.
