FlexTrade has introduced a new Back-Testing framework designed to gauge and adjust the performance of past trading strategies for real-time use in trading equities, FX and futures.
“Just because a trading strategy worked successfully in the past, doesn’t mean it will show the same results in the present,” said Vijay Kedia, President and CEO of FlexTrade. “There are countless variables – old and new — that could impact performance in unanticipated ways. That’s why using an advanced back-testing framework can make all the difference in running a winning strategy.” According to Kedia, the speed in which the Back-Testing replay occurs is quite extraordinary. “One day’s worth of data can be back-tested in less than 30 seconds, while a full year’s worth of data can be back-tested in less than a day,” he said.
