In this blog post we will review the simulated performances of a few
UPRO/TMF strategy implementations using the Quantconnect platform. If you’re not familiar with the platform, it is an algorithmic trading platform that provides backtesting and live trading across of variety of asset classes including: equities, futures, forex, options, and cryptocurrencies. I like using the platform because of the access to a large number of asset classes, the development team is responsive and you can code strategies in Python (even though the underlying platform is built in C). The strategies’ performances are evaluated using pyfolio and ffn. Note that in some cases their calculations are slightly different.
