Stock Watch Pro Backtesting is Pathetic!!!!

  1. I'm getting really sick of this. When I get my backtest results, I sometimes see some outrageous numbers, so naturally I manually check what happened on that trade and what do I find? A friggin mistake. This doesn't happen all too often, but still, it completely screws up the integrity of my results. I can't manually check every trade.

    Plus SWP doesn't even offer statistics like max dd, avg winner/loser, etc.

    Does anyone know of a better program for backtesting? I know tradestation is probably better, but the real-time data package is pretty expensive. I see they have a EOD package for backtesting for $50 a month, but I think that you can't use intraday timeframes with that package. Ahhhh. What to do?

    You might try this:

    Also, I agree. Any rigorous testing doesn't hold up in SWP. A maddening program for those who like to use their time efficiently.

    Good luck.
