    back test

    Hi, I am attempting to develop and backtest and autostrategy,

    I am a bit uncertain on the backtest procedure, I am using
    zenfire for datafeed, where do i retrieve the historical data
    and exactly what steps are required to get into a backtest
    mode?

    Latkinso,

    Zen-Fire does provide limited amounts of historical data. If you want to do some serious backtesting, you will need a provider such as eSignal or DTNiQ.

    Here is a link for historical data - http://www.ninjatrader-support.com/H...ricalData.html

    There are quite a few steps involved to develop and backtest a strategy. Fortunately, there is documentation. I would start with the following link and work your way through it. I will likely host some product training sessions in this area next week.

      Back test

      Thanks Ray for the quick reponse.

      Please direct me to the strategy analyzer icon, sounds
      silly, but i have looked at every button on this thing and
      am obviously overlooking it.

      Thanks

      Lynn

          Entry question

          Hi Ray

          You would be proud of me, i found the strategy analyser and
          was actually able to do a backtest. There is hope for all of us, lol

          Can you tell me the correct method of auto entry for a system
          such as the sample moving average crossover, that would begin
          with the correct number of contracts. The system as i am running
          it starts the first trade of the day with a two lot and then is
          just going flat on each switch rather than changing from long
          to short and vice versa.

          Thanks

          Lynn

            Hi Lynn,

            Great...

            We are in the process of providing more sample code for users to reference. What I would suggest is reviewing in great detail the Strategy Wizard section of our Help Guide. Also search for the Tutorial on building a strategy. Both of these sections will give you a jump start in building various strategies.
