Net profit is the 1st indicator to be reviewed for a trading strategy. It represents the actual profit of the simulated trading strategy, which calculated by total profit - total loss.
Profit Factor is the ratio of the net profit versus the net loss - the 2nd indicator to review. This ratio shows how much the profit exceeded the loss. If Profit Factor is greater than "1", it means the trading strategy has generated more profits than losses. Generally, greater than "1.5" is an ideal trading strategy.
No. of Trades
No. of Trades is the 3rd indicator to review, which means the number of transactions of a simulated buy and sell action. To ensure enough trades are being taken during the simulation period, the no. of trades with more than "10" is an ideal case for the trading strategy.
Maximum Drawdown is an important measure of risk for a trading strategy. It is the value of the largest decline from equity high to a subsequent equity low, which is useful for estimating the investment size and stop loss strategy. It should be smaller than the % of return and depends on individual risk acceptance level.
Gross Profit means the profit by all winning trades.
