Re: Best Strategy Backtesting Software

ts = very slow. does not take advantage of multicore.
also if it crashes say good bye to your results. no resuming.i had this experience recently. i tested my start for 28 hours or so over 2 months on @ES with great results (28k for the two months). then it crashed. now i cannot get back to those results.

attached is the snapshot i was able to take. I was taking snapshots whenever i could but when it crashed i was at work so don t what happend after the above snapshot.

i tried multicharts which is able to take advantage of multicore but has a memory leak issues and also crashes eventually. they are both good for short term backtesting and/or limited inputs.
.
multicharts is highly recommended if 1. you have multicore cpu, a lot of memory, short time frame and a lot of parameters.
otherwise ts is good

this is just my experience and opinion good luck..

Re: Best Strategy Backtesting Software

MultiCharts is very power in backtesting and optimization; it utilizes all the CPU cores available to the operating system.Here’s a screen shot of the TaskManager during one of my backtests.

p.s. I have been using MultiCharts since 2006… never encountered memory leaks.
