Survivorship Bias

Post by LeviF » Wed Aug 13, 2008 8:18 am

I have recently wondered if my forex testing could suffer from survivorship bias, especially when including some exotic/minor currencies such as MXN, ZAR, INR, NZD, HUF, etc. Has anyone else given consideration to this topic in the forex realm? I know in stocks its very important, futures, probably not so.
