    I use Bloomberg and Reuters as data sources. I haven't had a chance yet to look into these vendors' backtesting features. Would appreciate any comments or other advice, maybe anyone knows good backtesting software which integrates w/these. Thx.
  2. Bloombergs BTST function is a joke
  3. I used Reuters for 10 years. In the '90's they had the best charting package available. And as it's now basically the same as it was then, you can say it's light-years behind even average level charting software. So I wouldn't choose it as a backtesting tool. In fact I don't know that it even has that function. Maybe their Metastock package does.
