I guess I view things along the lines if you had a database of 10,000 poker hands with the money that exchanged hands on each one, even if you deleted 5000 of the hands you would still have a great sample of the process at work. If you had 3 companies recording the poker hands, there would be no value in tracking down the reason for the discrepancy on hand #7877 with all 3 companies had the players holding different cards.

I think most trading backtesting is fools gold because like in the above example you could test for what happens when a player gets a certain hand over a certain number of deals and if they win or lose but that tells you absolutely nothing about what is going to happen on the next hand in the future. A deck of cards is surely more deterministic than the markets but we tend to think in terms of the opposite.

All you really need to know for R is how to get data in and then transform it to the input the function you want to use takes.

Great analogy (i.e., poker hands). Thanks.

I'm currently looking into programmatically adding expiries and rollover dates, which I think I've just figured out via NT Support. I'm close on this, and I will finish it next week.

We're currently heading for the Olympic Peninsula for a long weekend with friends, however--so I'm out until then.

I appreciate your perspective.
