Skew measures the asymmetry of a distribution of returns, indicating whether they lean towards higher or lower values than the average.


Tail ratio compares the size of the far ends (tails) of the distribution, specifically the 95th percentile against the 5th percentile, to assess the risk of extreme losses or gains.


Profit factor is the ratio of gross profits to gross losses over a specified period, indicating the relative profitability of a trading strategy.


Kurtosis quantifies the 'tailedness' of the distribution of returns, revealing whether extreme values are more or less common than in a normal distribution.


Daily Value at Risk estimates the potential loss in value of a portfolio over a given time frame, based on the likelihood of adverse price movements.


Daily return average is the mean of daily returns, providing a simple measure of the average return a trader can expect in a day.


Daily return standard deviation measures the volatility of daily returns, reflecting how much the return on any given day might deviate from the average daily return.
