Strategy Backtesting Platforms Forex Factory

I need to find a robust backtesting platform where I can also use API's to tweak and develop a system for index futures. Not interested if it is only crypto or forex.

What trading platform if any would allow me to program real-time data (or historic data for that matter), in any programming language, and execute paper trades. Language/OS is not an issue, rather the robustness and scalability (to real-time, real money).

Backtesting platforms?

Hello. I am just getting into forex and wondering if there are any platforms available for me to backtest potential trading strategies.
Looking for something that allows me to plonk in the criterias for a trade and allow it to run automatically, but manual ones are ok too if no such platforms exist
cheers thanks

Is Forex Tester 4 worth the outlay?

I'm interested in understanding back testing strategies, and have heard a few podcasts mention Forex Tester. I'm lost most weekends as i'm using IG INdex demo account, and cannot really trade or backtest on the platform.
Are there other, better software out there? Or even open-source or free?

Anyone here work on stock trading platforms?

I spent the last 10 years building backtesting, analytics, modeling, and auto-execution platforms for stocks, options, futures, and forex. I'm just curious if there's anyone else that works on these platforms in this sub. I left my position in April and haven't had anyone to nerd-out with since none of my friends/family want to understand trading.
I'm currently working on my own startup (an options spread analysis platform) while looking for my next position, and curious what other trading product managers' experience looks like.

No amount of demo trading will prepare you for live account.

First of all, I'm not against demo trading.
However, no matter the amount of time you spend trading demo, it can never prepare you for living trading. Demo is good for 4 main things:
  1. Introducing you to forex
  2. Understading the mechanics of your trading platform (eg. mt4 or ctrader)
  3. Backtesting a strategy.
  4. Briefly forward-testing a strategy.
The number 1 reason retail traders fail is because of trading psychology. Any basic trading strategy like a simple MA crossover can make you successful if you manage your emotions as a trader.
Moving of Stop loss, refusing to set stop loss, letting losses ride while closing profits as quickly as possible are all about problems with your trading psychology and no amount of demo trading will teach you to be better because you are simply not invested in the trades.
People recommend trading demo for 6 months or 1 year and that's simply wrong. We have all been at a point where we even forgot about a trade only to open metatrader hours or even days later to see it in profit. There's no lesson learnt here.
The 6 months or 1 year you spent trading demo would have been worthwhile if you had gone live with $100 and try taking it to $1,000 over a period of 1 year with a strategy.
Don't waste too much time on demo. Find a strategy, backtest it with at least 10 years of data and see if it's worthwhile then move to live.
Trading, like every other career, involves cost and consider that first $100 account (which you will probably blow) as part of your cost of training. Stop wasting time on demo. Trading is probably 10% strategy, 90% psychology. Only live account will teach you about psychology.

Q: Are you aware of any tools that can be used to compare the results of previously backtested strategies?

There are many tools online, such as TradingView, that allows users to write scripts or strategies to automatically buy and sell stocks or FOREX at certain times. These work on a variety of technical analysis indicators such as a combination of MACD, SMA, ext. Individually, they can be backtested on specific stocks by individually loading each one on a program like TradingView and comparing the returns (which is super annoying).
I was wondering if you were aware of a website, or another tool, that compares all the strategies that have been developed by users on these platforms, and then ranks them according to those that have achieved the biggest returns? Kind of like a strategy screener and ranker.
I am essentially looking to see if anyone has come across some sort of database that can rank and compare among the many thousands of strategies created by users available online. If you are aware of such a service, please let me know! If not, I am happy to consider creating one myself. Please let me know if you would be interested in such a project.
TL;DR: Are you aware of a tool that automatically compares different backtested strategies to find the one that would have historically provided the best returns for a specific stock?

College forex trader - would appreciate some help!

So a few months ago, someone I had met in the first few weeks of my first semester at college, had been posting pictures of his MT4 account with his profits, and I was pretty intrigued. I asked him what it was, and he said it was the Forex market, so I wanted to learn more and asked to meet up with him. When we met he was explaining it a little more and told me that he was in this networking trade group called IMarketsLive and went on to offer for me to sign up, upon which I said I wanna do a little research before I sign up for anything. And so I did, and saw a lot of different opinions about IML and the things they do, and I wasn't really attracted to the networking aspect and also did not want to start paying $275 a month just to be in the group. It seemed to me like it was kind of a pyramid scheme, so I turned down the offer but decided to try to learn about the Forex market for free on my own.
I started doing more research about it in my free time, and eventually I discovered the BabyPips website where you can go through around a 330 lesson course, which goes through a lot of the basics and foundations of Forex trading. I made it through that in about a month and a half or so, and then opened up a demo account with IG. I watch a lot of youtube so more and more videos about forex started popping up in my recommended and have definitely helped along the road.
One thing I saw is not to have a demo account for too long, so after around a month of having the demo and getting a little profit, I opened a live account with $300 on Oanda. I use their online trading platform and it's alright, there are some things I liked better with IG but that's besides the point.
I've been trading with lots of 500 units or less so I'm only down about $6, but I feel like I'm kind of stuck. After all the stuff I've read and watched so far, I've come to understand that there are some key things every trader needs to do. From what I've seen, it's
Among a few other things I might be forgetting, I understand these are crucial points to follow to become a successful trader. The only thing is I feel like I've flooded myself with so much information and I really don't know where to go from here. I don't have a trading plan mainly because the best thing I've heard to do is make one that fits my trading style, but simply put I don't know what my trading style is and don't know how to actually construct a usable plan.
I know many people join the market because of the dream of turning $25 into a million dollars, however I don't have that mindset. Also I know I should focus first on preserving my capital and being consistent rather than focus on getting a lot of money, I just don't know how to do this. I am ready to put more effort into the market, I just don't know where to put it.
Another thing to note is that for when I am ready and have developed a proper strategy and everything, I have sufficient capital (around $3k) to actually start making some serious profit. (for a 19 y/o!)
Anyways, if you would like to give any advice, tips, things to avoid, stories, anything - that would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks for reading👍
EDIT: This is my first time using reddit so I can't reply to anything because I don't have enough karma whatever that means. But thanks for your responses, they will definitely help me to start building my own strategy.

My Friday Scalper trades

So for FRY-DAY (May 8,2020), I was not super happy with the forex markets and looks like the markets were in general bit emotional with a spike here and there. This was despite bad data on US jobs. Anyways, since the trader's itch is hard to control, I did some scalps on my $1000 "fun" account. Now mind you that even-though it is "fun" account. It is my real hard earned money and I am not fooling around with it. My risk management is always on. Again I hate demo and do not believe that it helps more than just understanding the trading platform. Other thing I do not use stop loss and had been like this for last about 4 years (shame on me -every guru tells to use it). Now I just do visual backtesting and pattern analysis, which does not need a demo account for basic chart reading.
So with the traders itch -following are my Friday's real account trades on $1000 account:
USD-JPY short - 3 pips, AUD-USD short -2 pips, GBP-USD short -5 pips, USD-CHF short - 3 pips, USD-JPY long - 5 pips.

How To Choose An Automated Trading Platform?

How To Choose An Automated Trading Platform?
When going for an automated trading platform it is very important to look for some important features before you decide on the automated trading platform you want to trade on. Different automated trading platforms offer different services which have their own pros and cons and might suit certain strategies and better than the others.
We have discussed important features that you should consider while choosing an algorithmic trading platform.

Select The Right Automated Trading Platform


https://preview.redd.it/gbx58zrdabu41.png?width=900&format=png&auto=webp&s=5ee3a23bc4f55a88437a8002fedfdf73390ece9b

Backtesting

A backtest is a historical simulation of an algorithmic trading strategy to see how it would’ve performed on the data in the past. Backtest results usually show the strategy’s performance in terms of profits and losses and some popular performance statistics like Sharpe Ratio or Information ratio which help to quantify the strategy’s return on risk. Hence a good backtesting software can be a great plus for an automated trading platform. Backtests can be divided into two categories ‘Research Backtesters’ and ‘Event-Driven Backtesting’.

Programming Languages

Choice of programming language is very important while deciding which platform to use for automating your trading strategy. Different languages have different pros and cons. Most commonly used programming languages used for algorithmic trading are C++, C#, Java, R, Python, and MATLAB. You can refer to one of our recent posts on top backtesting platforms where we’ve discussed popular programming languages.

Data

Different automated trading platforms provide access to/support trading/backtesting of certain securities only; some provide specific access to data feeds like Bloomberg and Thomson/Reuters. For instance, there are platforms dedicated to Forex trading or Equities trading only that too in specific markets. You need to make sure what the automated trading platform offers and then decide based on your needs. The frequency of data that you would need should also be taken into account. Some strategies would require daily EOD data while some other strategies might require intraday trading data.

Web-Based Platform

Some automated trading platforms also provide the web-based platform for online trading and backtesting which makes it easy and convenient to access your trading platform anywhere. The web-based platform may have less number of features compared to the desktop trading platform.

https://preview.redd.it/bwmmw9efabu41.png?width=900&format=png&auto=webp&s=c16e4008e52cf4cdd175241e8698b1fca09b43f4

Complexity

Different automated stock trading platforms vary in ease of use. Some platforms may require actual programming expertise while others may not. Most platforms provide a demo version which can help you decide what fits your comfort level. The complexity of platforms can be different for different assets traded, and one should check the different tools & features available to analyze the specific asset class.

Number of Strategies Allowed

Sometimes there might be restrictions on the number of long or short strategies loaded on a particular account and you might need extra accounts for more strategies. You should also check if you have enough memory on your computer for multiple accounts if required as it can be memory intensive. Some platforms also offer their own trading strategies as add-ons which can be subscribed by paying a periodic or one-time fee.

Commissions/Costs

Trading commissions can impact your profits to a great extent. Carefully choose the plan which suits your trading requirements. Also, check if there are initial and/or monthly fees and what is offered against it to make sure you are only paying for services which you actually want.

Technical Support & Customer Service

Automated Trading platforms are expected to have an extremely high “up-time” and rarely go out of service. Before choosing the platform you should check the history of outages and if there have been any other issues in the past, how soon were those resolved, and how knowledgeable and helpful was the support team.

Looking to get into algorithmic trading, need some help with markets/finance

Hey how's it going everyone.
I'm looking to get into algorithmic trading and was wondering what a good way to start was. I've checked out quantstart for example but it seems extensive. A bit about my background first, I have a BS in EE CS from a top UC school and I also work as an software engineering intern right now at a well known Fintech company. My backgrounds pretty heavy in CS + EE and mathematics as well and I'm excited to apply my skills towards trading and algorithms where I can also use my software development skills. I also have an offer for a winter internship as a quant dev/analyst a small fund on wallstreet. I'm also deciding on an MFE/CS/applied econ math program next fall or spring as deadlines are coming up.
Desire: I would like to understand more about algorithmic trading platforms and of course to begin trading, I'd like to learn how to apply my background in ML to markets as well but my main goal is starting slow. I want to do this before my internship begins. I've also began using robinhood and it's alot of fun, I'd love to play around with their api.
My questions:
1) My main questions pertains towards the finance side. I don't have trading experience and would like to learn within the next three months. I'd like to learn more about backtesting and begin simulated algorithmic trading with fictitious money before moving on to actual money. Any tips on this?
2) What platform should I look into to learn more about trading, I'm thinking about equities first and then looking into something like forex or even crypto. Unless a better suggestion you have in mind. I'm mainly interested in commission free and no fees, if that even exists. I know robinhood does this but is there a desktop based platform?
3) I'm curious about the inner working of algorithmic trading. Are most people using just an autonomous algorithm they run that connects to an exchange/broker? Or are most people building their own exchanges and testing on both?
4)If there's any good articles or guides/videos you've seen that are applicable that would be great.

What do you prefer Ctrader or MT4?

Being new to forex would it be more beneficial for me to learn Ctrader platform because it is more up to date and MT4 is becoming more outdated?
I currently have no interest in trading with bots. I would rather fully understand the market so I can tweak my own strategy, rather than have a bot trade for me and not understand where my profit/loss came from.
Also which platform is better for a Forex Simulator so I can Backtest my strategies?

Emotional apathy going too strong

Hi all,
I've been into forex trading for 5 years now, and I finally have a bullet proof strategy. I've been trading it for half a year, backtesting an with real money, and the strategy actually works like a charm. But my issue is somewhat unique
So, I have never liked demo accounts. The total detachment from emotions in them is the key; I am a full supporter of the people saying Demo should only be used to get familiar with the trading platform, and not for forward testing. That is why I always put some money in when I tested a strategy in the past - very small amount, between 200 and 500 euro. To me, however, being from Bulgaria, that is 1/4th of my monthly salary, so not THAT little.
So, following the usual path, I have blown up about 20 of these small accounts in the years. Finally, I have a strategy, and now my biggest issue is... I can no longer get excited.
Now, some would say that's a good thing. Trading without emotions, etc, etc. But I don't believe in it!
I have been stepping over my rules because of apathy. Because I've seen a small 300 euro account burst into flames so often. I'm still breakeven, and I see I still often break my rules because of lack of interest, follow-through, entering trades for the sake of entering trades. And yeah, my mind always get set to "get back to my initial balance" after I do 20 stupid things in a row, and I never advance beyond that starting point.
I have never imagined I would finally be 1 step from being profitable (and I really can. When I lose some money, the desire to bring it back makes me strict, and I come back to breakeven in <10 trades) and at the same time, never been as close to taking the decision to quit trading forever. I might as well do it tomorrow, I will feel nothing.
What can I do to spark things up a bit? I'm desperate...

Looking for a good starting point - does MultiCharts fit the bill?

I'm fairly new to trading, coding, and finance, but I've begun developing a strategy that I'd like to flesh out. I've done some manual backtests and they seem promising, but I don't have a big enough sample size to really feel confident about it yet. I figured that the best thing to do is to develop an algorithm that I can backtest with a lot of data, but I'm feeling a bit unsure where to start presented with all these different options combined with my inexperience.
I've been using QuantConnect a bit, but I'm not thrilled with the fact that certain staff members can view my code, so I want to switch to something that won't have that issue. I was originally looking at Python platforms, but I've heard that it executes too slowly and I should be looking at building my algorithm in C# or C++. I'm not looking to execute on tick data as of now, and the lowest time frame I can anticipate going is 1 minute, although more likely it's 5 minutes. Will the speed issue come into play on those time frames? I'd also like to get into machine learning eventually and as far as I know Python is better for that so seems like there may be a bit of a trade off...that said, I'd imagine there's a way to integrate Python machine learning with C# or C++, but perhaps that's my ignorance speaking.
Someone on here recommended using MultiCharts - does this seem like a good starting point? I'm worried about getting too deep into developing my own platform and MultiCharts seems fairly user friendly as far as having a GUI and robust platform. I'd really like to just get straight into developing and testing my strategy, as that's what got me interested in algotrading to begin with.
Oh, the strategy is based on forex, if that's helpful. Thanks in advance for any input!

Trading Bot Development

I've been building Forex trading EA's "Bots" for a while now and now I want to start building bots to trade Bitcoin and Litecoin. I don't want to be stuck to a platform I want to have a standalone bot that will trade without having to pay to be hosted on a site like cryptotrader.org. Whats the best way to develop trading bots for Bitfinex and BTC-E?
Now for backtesting these bots that I create can I input the code of my bots into Cryptotrader and backtest even though I'm using the bot in a browser plugin or standalone bot program?

Looking for trading platform with a public API

Hello
I'm a software developer new to investing. I have invested into an index but currently I'm interested in testing if I could develop swing trading strategies that are profitable in the long term. I'm thinking of starting with forex trading. My plan would be to create my own software that integrates into a trading platform so that I can easily generate charts that I need myself etc. I'm nowhere near ready to invest sufficient amounts of money yet, so I will be just backtesting and simulating trading for probably quite a while. Now I'm at the stage that I'm looking for a trading platform that would fill these requirements:
I have found TrueFX that offers forex data but heard their data might have some issues. Namely it lacks volume information and some data is missing. Interactive Broker's API seems good but they have a pretty high minimum balance requirement.
Thanks!

Some basic algo trading questions on platform and data sources

Hi algoTrading,
I'm new to algorithmic trading, and was hoping to get some advice on how to get set up. My questions fall into two categories, first, what platforms do you guys use for backtesting, and second, where do you get your data from.
First, to clarify what I mean by 'platform'. I am looking for a mechanism which will enable me to (relatively) easily go from idea to backtest. For instance, in quantopian, you can write a strategy, and backtest it. The backtest will generate relevant metrics, and you do not have to worry about the code linking the strategy to the data. Additionally, if the platform allowed for more robust testing, like walk forward testing, and monte carlo analysis, that would be ideal.
I have seen two websites in particular, which seem to be popular. Quantconnect, and Quantopian. Now, I have looked into both of these, and I am not sure they are what I am after. First, I am a little skeptical of putting out algo's which I have poured my time hard work into, on sites which execute the code remotely. Second, I am more interested in derivatives trading than stock trading. If I were to use an online platform, I would prefer one which included data on Options/Futures/Forex. Additionally, while the language isn't a huge deal, I have experience in Java, and am learning Python for data Science applications. If there were a platform which let me use Python or Java, that would be ideal.
Second is the data source. This is a little redundant for online platforms, like quantopian, which are already integrated with the data. However, I have also been looking at Amibroker, which is executed locally on your computer, and does not come bundled with data. I have seen that you can get some data from IB, thinking about switching over to them, just for their data feeds. But really, the data I am interested in would be 1) EOD options data. 2) intra day futures/forex data. 3) intraday stocks/indexes/ETF data.
I am willing to pay for tools/data if necessary, but would prefer to keep costs as minimal as possible, as I am a losing trader with a day job.
Thanks in advance!

Trading platforms for developing strategies (free is better)

Hello to everybody. It's actually the first time that I post on Reddit.
I took a long break from trading. I stopped in 2013 due a relocation in a new country and I had to stop my learning plan.
I wanted to keep this post for reference, I hope it will help other newbies interested in getting the tools for developing trading strategies.
I mainly traded Forex and as you know MetaTrader 4 lacks most of the testing tools used to validate a trading strategy. Other platforms like Multicharts and Tradestation are very good but are not free. Before I commit money, I wanted to prove to myself that I can build good strategies.
I am wondering what other platforms I can use to backtest strategies: The main problem is the lack of validation tools like Monte Carlo and Walk Forward that I do not find on other platforms.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Kind Regards.
