Name: The Average Peak Excursion

In the “The Average Peak Excursion” article, Chris Young described the APE as a tool to select stocks that tend to yield higher returns and stocks with better relative reward vs. risk performance. Besides, the APE allows determining the best trading time frame to maximize return.

return LogN(ape20/ape1)/LogN(20)> limit;
