Strategy Myth-Busting #20 - HalfTrend+HullButterfly - [MYN]

#20 on the Myth-Busting bench, we are automating the "I Found Super Easy 1 Minute Scalping System And Backtest It 100 Times" strategy from "Jessy Trading" who claims 30.58% net profit over 100 trades in a couple of weeks with a 51% win rate and profit factor of 1.56 on EURUSD .

This one surprised us quite a bit. Despite the title of this strategy indicating this is on the 1 min timeframe, the author demonstrates the backtesting manually on the 5 minute timeframe. Given the simplicity of this strategy only incorporating a couple of indicators, it's robustness being able to be profitable in both low and high timeframes and on multiple symbols was quite refreshing.

The 3 settings which we need to pay most attention to here is the Hull Butterfly length, HalfTrend amplitude and the Max Number Of Bars Between Hull and HalfTrend Trigger. Depending on the timeframe and symbol, these settings greatly impact the performance outcomes of the strategy. I've listed a couple of these below.

And as always, If you know of or have a strategy you want to see myth-busted or just have an idea for one, please feel free to message me.
