The Market Testers give you the opportunity to backtest our strategies or design your own systems.
Our Market Testers are developed to help you test your strategies. You can combine different rules and set multiple parameters, or change the timeframe, this way efficiently and reliably testing your own trading ideas.
Backtesting gives huge advantages that must be used.
No matter how the strategy is developed, you need to be certain that it will not fail in real trading. Testing it on history data will give you the confidence that this is a sound and robust candidate. The test will generate statistics for the trading strategy performance, you can choose to adjust parameters to make it better, if you notice flaws. All this is done in a safe environment, and without risking real capital.
Another problem testers solve is one, associated with the fitness of strategies.
While evolving the trading idea, you can never be too certain that it is not overfitted to the data on which it was developed. This would mean that, although the trading system shows perfect performance throughout its development stage, it may fail miserably when run on unknown data (unknown history data or real trading).
That is why we developed these Trading Testers, each one implementing a different approach and a different trading system. All have the opportunity to be actively managed and the parameters to be adjusted, so that you can backtest your strategy in the best possible way.
