Website Feature: Sample Performance
Sample Performance is a featured page on www.tradingsolutions.com that is updated monthly with new and long running neural network models. Many of our competitors will dazzle you with "Gee Whiz Examples" that demonstrate great performance over a short period of time and that are sometimes months or even years out of date. We'd rather demonstrate models with great performance and that are updated on a frequent basis!

An example of one of our current models is Denbury Resources, Inc. (Holding Company) (NYSE:DNR) which over the year has an Annualized Return of 124.95% with a Sharpe Ratio of 2.43.

Denbury Resources, Inc. (Holding Company) Equity Curve from December 2009 to January 2011

Not only our models are kept up-to-date, but you can also download and use them in TradingSolutions during the 30-day Free Evaluation! For more information on the Sample Performance section please visit our website by pressing the "Find Out More" button.
