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.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

new (current) symbols vs backtested symbols

let me give an example
say, i am backtesting RSI2 pullback method (a popular one) and it gave a good + PnL results in backtest

just for example,
during backtest, it gives symbols, MSFT,SBUK,ARNA,ACAD,ARIA
during scan today, it gives symbols, ARUN,ABTL,BIOC,BLOX,CLNE

it showed ++results for backtested symbols
how can I trust the ++results RSI2 method on the backtested symbols now to trade these new symbols ARUN,ABTL,BIOC,BLOX,CLNE

or we just test the method (RSI2) during backtest and not for those symbols ?
