- optimized closed equity algorithm (works 2 times faster)
- added a new scorecard that does not contain any performance metrics based on closed equity: "MS123 Scorecard (No closed equity)". Select this if you want to execute large optimizations of intraday strategies creating thousands of positions at fastest speed.

- Several metrics are not available in Raw Profit mode - namely Sharpe ratio, Sortino ratio, Ulcer Performance Index, MEGAN ratio, Max drawdown of closed equity, K-Ratio, MAR Ratio, Upside/Downside capture ratio and Capture Ratio. Switch to Portfolio Simulation mode to utilize them.
- Sortino ratio uses
*monthly*returns (complete months only). - There are two Sharpe ratio versions: the Wealth-Lab figure (annualized) and the one that uses monthly returns (complete months only; numbers are slightly different from Wealth-Lab's own metric).
- Sharpe ratio and Sortino ratio account for the user-specified risk-free rate (
*Preferences - Backtest Settings*).
