    Can people give me recommendations on the applications to do backtesting on equity and futures data?

    I just need the backtesting feature and do not really need live trading capability. I am mostly looking to test on daily data (which will feed through Yahoo). Above all, I want the ability to use my own indicators for testing.

    Thanks in advance,
  2. Futures data from Yahoo!? Interesting...

    Backtesting is much more complicated and involved than just using a program. Data integrity makes a hell of a difference. Data series adjustements are critical.
