Is the formula for the Maximum Adverse Excursion for a Short Selling Trade the (Open - High) / Open, or (High - Open) / Open ?

  • $\begingroup$ The MAE is a kind of potential loss or drawdown that is usually shown as positive. I.e. 5 means you could have lost 5 dollars. So on a shortsale, if done in percentage terms, it would be (high-open)/open and on a buy (open-low)/open. $\endgroup$
