Swapperbox algorithm is backtested against historical price data. We use the backtest to provide a forecast of the future performance and as the axiom to justify the trades.

This is not the historical data of the live trader. This is the backtest data of the Swapperbox algorithm. If you want to see the historical trade data, please refer to the trade history.

Sometimes we upgrade the algorithms to enhance performance or fix bugs, so this data may not reflect the currently running algorithm. Anyways the data is sufficiently structured as to calculate the true performance of the system.

Swapperbox performance compared to the HODL strategy

The most common strategy in crypto trading, is the buy and hold strategy (aka. HODL). HODL has been an effective strategy and has driven good profits to the investors. However, these profits came with very high risk. Swapperbox is intended to handle the risk to outperform the HODL strategy.

BTCBUSD vs Swapperbox Performance

The following chart makes a comparison of HODL strategy on BTC against the Swapperbox algorithm performance.

Profits are in percentage points starting from 100% which represents the original amount.

In the backtest results, Swapperbox algorithm achieved a % USD ROI over the last three years.

BUSDBTC vs Swapperbox Performance

We can change the point of view, to see the performance of USD on BTC terms, we can then compare it with the Bot’s performance on BTC terms.

In the backtest results, Swapperbox algorithm achieved a % BTC ROI over the last three years.

Swapperbox draw downs relative to the HODL strategy

Draw downs in the HODL strategy have reached up to -90% USD in the past due to the extreme volatility events of Bitcoin. Swapperbox algorithm is intended to lower the risk and increase the profits by forecasting the market, avoiding those large draw downs.

The following charts are custom DrawDown oscillators intended to show the risk in DrawDown terms.

  • The orange line, represent the DrawDown oscillator.
  • The Red line is the average DrawDown of the backtest results.
  • The Blue line is the profit line.

When the orange line touches the blue line, it means the balances reached an all-time high.

DrawDown oscillator on USD terms

One of the most important measures of risk for a trader, is the DrawDown in USD terms, this oscillator shows the DrawDown in USD terms for the Swapperbox algorithm.

During the backtest session, the DrawDown on USD was on average % over the last three years.

DrawDown oscillator on BTC terms

The same thing is important to measure from the BTC perspective, since the future USD profits will be influenced by how much we gained or lost on BTC.

During the backtest session, the DrawDown on BTC terms was on average % over the last three years.

Conclusions on the performance data

We encourage you to derive your own conclusions from the provided data. The data represents the results of the algorithm backtest and is not an indicative of future performance.*
