This library contains procedures: for computing backtest (monthly rebalancing, currency hedging, strategy leveraging, fees managing, performance reporting, etc. The rider optimization algorithm (ROA) is devised based on a novel computing method, namely fictional computing that undergoes series of process to solve the issues of optimizations using imaginary facts and notions. Introduced derivative-free optimization algorithms, for the common case where you don't have too many parameters (tens or hundreds) and computing the gradient is inconvenient (complicated programming, even if adjoint methods are theoretically applicable) or impossible (non-differentiable objectives).
