Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

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.

TOS backdate scans

I would like to know if a backdate scan is possible in the TOS. This way in half an hour I can test if particular scan criteria results in good long or short performance for a certain time period like weeks or months.

Or is it something to do with making a strategy and testing it that way. Me new to TOS so strategy making is something that needs to be read up on. Thanks All.
