equity curve
A plot of how a trading account's Cash value varies over time. Forex traders who are in the process of developing a generally profitable Trading Strategy will look for one with an equity curve that usually slopes upward as an indicator of positive performance. On the other hand, a strategy that demonstrates a negative sloping equity curve would probably be rejected as a poorly performing losing strategy.
