I am looking to build a simple backtesting tool for trading stocks or forex. Ideally this would be an online app.
To use a very simple example just to show what I'm talking about, it would be something like:
Using a daily chart of YHOO...
"Buy every time the stock crosses above its 50 day moving average, and go short every time the stock crosses below its 50 day moving average. Set a stop loss of 5%. Set a take profit at 10%."
Before getting into all the details, I'd like to first see if anyone on vworker has experience with trading, backtesting and technical analysis indicators. If so, I can get you more information about what exactly I want, and then we can work out a bid.
For now, please just respond if you have experience in these areas and would be able to put together a backtesting platform.
