Backtesting software for Equities and Options?

Discussion in 'Trading Software' started by MentalTunnel, Apr 2, 2011.

  1. What software can people suggest for backtesting equities and if possible options. I have heard good things about Wealth-Lab except that it is no longer sold in Canada or the USA unless you are a Fidelity customer.

    I have also heard MetaStock has backtesting problems.

    What are you using and why?

    If you want to backtest options where are you going to get the option data ?.

    also in terms of good backtesting software, take a look at my TradersStudio.

    eSignal 11 has both a robust Backtesting capability and a newly added historical option database if you choose to go down that route.
