Sharpe Ratio and Risk-Adjusted Returns

We use the Sharpe ratio to evaluate algorithm performance so we can consider risk and reward at the same time when scoring all the competition entries.

The Sharpe Ratio is the most appropriate method, as it allows us to determine how well the rate of return increase is relative to the risk taken, therefore, highlighting whether profits originated from smart algorithm strategies or simple methods take excessive risks.

For the purpose of the competition, we accept that the higher the Sharpe Ratio is, the higher the risk-adjusted performance is. When comparing strategies, the highest ratio would theoretically provide a higher return at the same risk level or the same return at a lower risk level.
