TS can't backtest a portfolio???

Discussion in 'Trading Software' started by Philo Vance, Mar 31, 2006.

  1. I'm pretty fed up with Investor/RT and was about to switch to TradeStation, but I decided to download and read the manuals first. It looks like you can only backtest single symbols, not groups of symbols. I emailed TS support and asked, and they told me "The backtesting component is done on 1 symbol at a time. The results would also be on an individual basis"

    Is that really true? It seems like portfolio backtesting is such a basic feature, I can't believe they don't have it. TS is so highly rated as a backtesting platform.

    Can someone set me straight on this?

  7. I use Rina with TS and its pretty sweet. It comes at a high price though. PortfolioMerge is much cheaper.
  8. Thanks to everyone who took the time to respond. I'll check out all the alternatives that were suggested.
