NEED SOFTWARE FOR BACKTESTING
I know you review software and trading systems. Can you refer me to an issue (past or in the near future)
that evaluates them?
Essentially, I am interested in backtesting my own strategies using RSI, chart patterns, and trendlines. Since these are somewhat interpretive values, I want to quantify/backtest them as best as possible.
I am looking at TradeStation and MetaStock; am I on the right track?
Yes, you are on the right track. There are also other products available. Most of our Traders’ Tips section contributors will have what you are looking for. You can also search our archives for product reviews.—Editor
