It goes without saying that majority of amateurs leave the market immediately after they lose their first money. They don’t have enough experience, they are impulsive and inconsistent, and they also believe in everything others tell them even if they were told a different thing. Try strategy tester before you start your live trading. Strategy tester is a great opportunity to create, optimize and improve your own strategy or test the existing one, make sure it works and maximize your trading efficiency. If anything goes wrong and your strategy doesn’t work properly strategy tester will prove it to you in minutes.
We have a large repository of different financial instruments to widen your testing capabilities. We grant you access to more than 7500 stocks and futures, all currency pairs since plus silver and gold. Strategy tester recreates the atmosphere of the market of your interest, gives you a solid knowledge of how real market works and opens it for your experiments. You can turn back time and manually test strategies based on real price movements.

One can say that it is possible to find an appropriate trading strategy recommended by an expert and it will solve all the problems. Believe us or not but this is not true – it’s hardly possible to find an appropriate strategy on the internet. Hardworking, believing in your star and suitable environment (meaning MaxProfit software) will guarantee that you will not create a hole in your deposit.
When it comes to measurement of trader’s success those who succeeded in trading always outline the importance of strategies backtesting. Backtesting is the instrument of analysis based on historical market data to verify if a trading strategy would have worked in the past. Manual backtesting allows you to simulate monthly or even yearly price movements in just a few hours simultaneously testing several strategies and their variations.
Trade simulation is way safer than a demo or live accounts.
It’s almost impossible to learn how to trade using a demo account. You need years of trading experience to do it without additional instruments. With demo accounts, it takes time to open a required amount of trades. But MaxProfit strategy tester will prove it to you quickly if your strategy is not profitable or vice versa.
It’s imprudent to use live accounts because the risk of losing money is high and because live trading software wasn’t developed for backtesting. You will surely feel what the real market is, but you will lose your deposit quickly as there’s no system in your trading yet and your emotions are not under control. With strategy tester, you put yourself in the position when you’re unsure how the market is going to move, and this is your chance to prove your choice right or wrong then go back in time and choose another direction.
Other software developers can provide you with a pass to the single market or will suggest doing your tests online which is definitely insecure.
MaxProfit delivers all at once. Using our backtesting environment is a risk-free operation which gives you the chance to make your own mistakes without financial loss, the key to understand how to correct them in seconds and a clear path to what is called your perfect strategy.
