Testing Trading Systems

Discussion in 'Strategy Building' started by Gordon Gekko, Aug 21, 2002.

  1. i'm interested in using tradestation solely for the purpose of testing trading systems. i don't want to also use tradestation for a broker. i don't need real time data either.. i just want to backtest systems using their easy language with historical daily data.

    what can i do?

    I would have recommended WL, it is not connected to a broker and you can use your own data. Importing historical ID data was very easy for me. One of the main features I liked is the portfolio optimization and portfolio money management.

  4. But when your data feed goes down, you get big gaps in your charts.
  5. Hey Gordon,

    For end of day data only and no brokerage, the fee is only 49.95 a month.

    No, it pulls the ID history automatically from the server of esignal. Any time I lock in I have about 60 days of history.
