vector vest has very good back testing tools,,but the better ones are expensive add ons. the system is made for swing trading your I R A. and it is as good as it gets. here is the problem ... you will need to trade a basket of 10 to 20 stocks to get deversitived. at 20.00 a round trip an no real leverage because you hare holding over a few days to weeks..you need a 200,000 account or more to make much. the slippage is more on stocks ...they can gap passed your stop, they can halt trading. when you get stop out on some the slippage can be breath taking... if shorting some times the broker does not have the inventory to barrow so your older can get hung in no mans land not knowing if it is filled or not.

I found that a basket of 5 stocks was optimum for backtesting. I only have the basic subscription and don't use their timing features. My trades are long term and last until the stop is hit.

The number I pay most attention to is the max drawdown.
