What is Zerodha PI Bridge and how much it cost per month?

Zerodha and Tradelab had build PI Bridge to give seamless and reliable connectivity from the charting or programming tool(AFL or AmiBroker or Ninjascript (Ninja Trader) or MQL (Metatrader)) to the trading engine on Pi. First time in ever in any trading platform, Zerodha PI Bridge is providing capability to fire orders via charting or programming tool and get order updates back via bridge. PI Bridge access is on-demand and free for 7-days trial, after that it cost Rs 300 Per month.

What is back-testing and how it works?

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.
