This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Backtesting and Market Replay

Hi Guys,

I am in the process of developing an automated strategy and am at the stage where I would like to test different variables across different markets over an extended period of time.

Basically, I want to test a range of futures markets efficiently and accurately as possible.

I have been told that I should follow this process:

Backtest > Market Replay > Live Sim > Live.

Sounds logical to me, however, I am not sure which data I should be using. I guess I would have to use a continuous contract? Does anyone know where I can get the most accurate back-testing and market replay data for Ninjatrader?

Much appreciated.
