    Hello everyone,

    I am wondering if anyone knows of software which will allow me to backtest a strategy whereby buys and sells are triggered by a specific number of candle closes above or below a specific trendline, moving average, indicator, etc.

    I am not an all star programmer by any means, so something intuitive and maybe gui based would be great.

    Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

    Why would you need CANDLE closes?

    Candles or bars are used to see range during set time frame, closes are same as on a line chart. Do not make it overly complicated from the beginning.

    i didn't think it was overly complicated, just trying to test something that is pretty apparent to me on a certain time frame candle chart.

    No "programming" involved, as you would normally think of it.
