The process of testing a certain trading strategy on historical price data is called "back-testing". The results of back-testing show the profit or loss which could have been made over time if the system had been used.
With the help of this new PI software, the trader can test multiple trading systems on multiple markets, stocks and commodities in a very short time. With an indicator builder, it is also possible to create own technical indicators and trading strategies and to test them directly with the software.
Back-testing only calculates the summarized profits or losses of all trades in a certain time frame. Broker commissions, slippage, and taxes are not considered in back-testing. The back-testing process requires three types of input data which can vary. These are the trading system which delivers buy and sell signals, a specific market product which gets traded, and a time frame for the back-testing calculation.
After seeing the demo of the tool I was really impressed with the charting feature and the way it provides the technical analysis for traders. The Back-testing is a great feature for research and technical analysis.With fast speed and low bandwidth use, we hope this tool is going to give new height to Zerodha's growth.
If you are not a Zerodha client yet, hurry and sign up to use one of the revolutionary trading platform!
