    What is the trades correct number?

    Hi everybody,
    I have the follow question: is there a trades minimum number for considering a valid backtest? For example I am testing a strategy from 01/01/2006 to 31/12/2008, what is it the trades number (more or less) for validating this automated strategy? 30-60-100 … always if exists this number

    Thanks in advance.
    Regards.

    Diego.

    Diego, a hard set 'correct' number would not really exist, however of course the more trades you have the more statistically significant your results could be potentially considered. I would definitely test earlier and later periods than the one you mentioned as well to see how well it could generalize on unseen data as well.
