Backtesting ES

  1. Hey guys, what is the accepted practice for backtesting an ES or for that matter any futures contract? I know it rolls over once every quarter, but at what point do you stop backtesting one contract and then start backtesting the next one? Kinetick minute data goes back 2 years and ticks 120 days.
  2. @ES is the continuous contract, made just for backtesting

    Just use the ES ##-## with NT and Kinetick.
