I had a chat with a friend recently who's using a fund manager services to invest for him in some US-based ETFs tracking the US indices.
I showed him using an online tool that those 2% annual fees he's paying to his fund manager are eating a lot of his profit overtime.
As I had some time, I decided to code this simulator in Pinescript because...
Very excited to bring this script to the public. This is a very useful table that displays the performance of any strategy you give it in a more detailed view. It runs on all timeframes and at any position on the chart with the replay function. It also updates on tick changes. The table consists of three modes: Simple Equity, Compound Equity and Drawdown.
Method for compound interest.
simple_compound(principal, rate, duration) Computes compound interest for given duration.
principal : float, the principal or starting value.
rate : float, the rate of interest.
duration : float, the period of growth.
By studying historical data we can know the compounded growth rate of an investment from the inception date. For example if we know that an investment has grown at the rate of 6% in the past and if we expect similar growth in the future also, We can plot this graph to understand whether the current price is underpriced or overpriced as per projected return.
