1. On its face this looks good but the real gold in back testing is the analytics. Without tracking the data through journals or spreadsheets you will not be able to effectively trade live. You will lack the confidence. Every serious trader tracks data and analyzes it to determine the "Rules" you will live by.

  2. Manual backtesting is good. But my strategy requires me to find the trend on higher time frames and enter on the lower. What should I do?

  3. I don't sign up for platforms for kicks but the way he made use of Trello made me sign up immediately after watching this video. Great organization – better than OneNote which is what I've been using for Forex trades for years. The visualization of the trades is what sold me.

  4. This looks like a very well organized system. Thank you. I have to ask, what is the point of backtesting? Is this an exercise in sharpening your ability to evaluate market moves on a given timescale?

  5. This is definitely a good way to do it. Cheap and simple! But it becomes useless when you have to switch between TF's , like from Daily to 4H! The chart becomes a mess =/

  6. Can you clarify what exactly it is you're doing? Is this like a mental diary? So you find a setup, decide what you would have done, and then scroll to the right to see what would have happened? If it is, I'm a little confused about the 'trade not taken' thing. I think what you're doing requires (or maybe builds) some mental discipline. But I'm wondering if what you think you would have done jibes what you ACTUALLY would have done in real life – or maybe they would be exactly the same…because you can only be true to yourself. Maybe I've got this all wrong.
