Before you risk your trading account, IndexTrader Advanced can perform a realistic trading simulation and inform you about the performance of your trading ideas. Strategy analysis is a vital stage of the strategy development process. When you insert your strategy into an active chart, a new simulation is automatically created and all performance reports are generated and stored in the Simulations Manager. This is the fastest way to simulate and analyze a strategy. With the IndexTrader Simulation Wizard, you can simulate one strategy with different symbols at once. Moreover, within one run of just one simulation you can back-test several strategies with one symbol. In both cases, you can easily compare the results. IndexTrader Simulations Manager enables easily creating, running and storing any number of simulations.
Optimisation is the process of performing multiple tests while varying the parameters used in the strategy rules or technical analytics indicators. The purpose of optimisation is to discover the most profitable settings for a specific indicator or rule when applied to a specific security. Optimisation can greatly expand your knowledge of each strategy and your competence in what works in different types of markets. Optimisation allows you to experiment with the parameters of your strategy without changing its main functions.
