  1. I would like to backtest some strategies - can anyone recomend software that would enable one to import their own data ?

    I use Amibroker. You can create your own formula based strategy and backtest it against all symbols. You can try it for free at their website.
    Very reasonable one time price with upgrades.

    Great software.... so I was wondering if there is anything better than Amibroker?
  3. I use Excel for a lot of my backtesting. Very underrated trading tool.
  4. I use Amazing Trend Signal Software. The software is free and the data rates are very reasonable around $10.00 per month.

  5. "Better" might best be defined on a case-by-case basis since needs, preferences and trading style vary by person. What works well for some may not be a good fit for others.

    Taking advantage of free trials is one way to find some answers.
