How do I use Pi to backest?

Back Testing is a method that traders use to test their trading strategies against historical market conditions. Knowing how much profit or loss a trading system generated in the past may help prevent or reduce the risk of loss in real trading.

The Back Testing screen can be loaded from the Alerts menu in the Main Menu.



To backtest you will need to use tradescript i.e., Pi’s scripting language. Tradescript is the language based on which PI Expert advisors, Alerts & Backtests are coded.

To get started with creating Alerts, Expert Advisors & Backtests, you can click on the help tab on PI & click on tradescript help.
