    How would a 2x or 3x stop loss impact these results?

    How would a 2x or 3x stop loss impact the results? My own work shows it is significant but I’d love to see it added to your study.

      Thanks for reaching out Ryan —

      Adding stop losses would be a drag on performance. I have a short put study that has stop losses from 1x to 5x:

      The mechanics that cause stop losses to be a drag would apply here as well.

      Not sure if this is sufficient to validate your work / thesis or if you’re in need of specifically a short call version. If the latter, message me on the contact page for a quote for a custom backtest.
