What do YOU use back testing for?

  1. I have been trying to build skills being a day trader or scalper, so I've just been paper trading to test my strategies. Should I look into back testing?

    What back testing softwares are the easiest, but most powerful to use? Do most of you program your strategies in a software and then execute those strategies in a different platform? Or is your platform integrated for back testing and then automated order executions?
  2. Tradestation.com - Tradestation platform

    Metatrader 4 (GCI covers futures) (Any other broker for forex)

    powerful-easiest+flexible=your own

    get real...there is no easy way for printing money machine
  4. I agree

    I really do not see an easy way to backtest.

    Either create your own, manually back test with charts, learn easy language from tradestation etc.
