backtest vs playback

Postby RobBoss » 21 Aug 2016

This may have been asked before, sorry if I am repeating.

I have noticed in my testing of signals, I will get different results depending on which testing method I use. I was wondering which version is more accurate. From what I have read, it seems the playback testing is more representative of real life. Can anyone confirm please?

Thank you

Here you can read why you might get different results in backtesting and playback: ... results%3F

It is up to you to see and compare which results are more accurate in your case.
