Backtesting

Recommended Posts

Back testing is very useful, to catch charlatan education in books and internet sites.Here fake price action gurus get caught with EAS( automated programs to back test nonsense education from frauds.It catches he fake gurus and opinions on forums.

 

It catches the the quacks  who trade high spread instruments, that lead to their failure.

Thanks for this back testing thread.Most back testing is useless.

If back testing on excel ,manual back testing or using automated software , then applying it on manual trading ,it will be totally inefficient back testing.This is because backtesting has no emotions , stress or any phsychological handicaps being back tested .Backtesting in such an inappropriate environment without emotions , stress or any phsychological handicaps , for which it will not be used , is useless and the dumb trading industry does it .

Results are much worse on actual trading .Most people can not replicate demo results or back testing results on live accounts.On live accounts ,trading psychology , execution liquidity and human commands element is involved 

 

It is about time to leave the nursery for you.

    • Wall Street did indeed break our level.  We were just too hasty to put a trade on (by going long not only once but twice).  If you zoom out on the hourly chart you see it is in a downtrend, no need for a MA.  We went long because we thought we saw a support area being respected, but forgot that you need confirmation of a new high (and especially so when price has been moving down sharply).  Also the daily candles were not strong.  
    • Our second short on the Dax is working out 😘   RSI is not 'oversold yet', let it keep running!  
    • They are free to use it that way if they wish so, No problem. You are the one that is calling others hot-head.
