Backtesting S&P e-mini, Open Tick feed

Postby deobisnath » 18 Jul 2007


Please help with the following:

I downloaded Multicharts, installed, and connected to Open Feed, and backtested ESU7 with 5 minute data.
I want to backtest ESU7 and other Futures, and QQQQ. How do I download 2 or 3 years of historical 5-minute data into Multicharts from Open Tick? And, how do I run the backtest on this historical data?

I’m not sure if this question is still relevant. To download 3 years of data you should select proper settings in Format Symbol dialog.
To back-test you need to apply the desired signals into the charts.
