Hi, I'm a bit new to automated trading. I've been tinkering around and I built this: I have a few questions I was hoping some of you more experienced people could help me with: 1) How do I make sure I'm not just optimizing my strategy to the set of historical data? 2) How do I start forward testing? 3) What hardware should I have to run my strategy off of? Just a dedicated computer? 4) From the performance specs posted, is there something I should focus on besides getting a 45 degree equity curve? I'm still tinkering around with the strategy so its not a final draft by any means.
