About This Class

Backtest your technical analysis trading systems before you make losses!

Technical analysis: Backtesting the stock market | Udemy

As a trader or investor, you probably have some technical analysis or risk management method that you use to trade or invest. Maybe you have a moving average system to determine when to buy or sell? Maybe you use RSI to time your entries? Or maybe you have a trailing stop loss system for risk management and profit taking?


Even though your methods are grounded on very sound principals, have you ever wondered if your method actually works? And if it has been working well for you, will it continue to work for the long run into the future? Have you actually tested them before?


How’s the performance like? What kind of draw downs will you encounter. What is your percentage win rate? Do you have any idea at all how your trading system will perform? Chances are, you probably do not know until its too late!


Think about it. You are risking your live savings into the market, and yet how can you not know whether your trading methods work or not!?

So what could the solution to all these uncertainties?

The solution is backtesting! Backtesting will test your trading method in the past to model how it may perform in the future. This will allow you to judge the performance and risk associated with your trading system before you put your life savings at risk!


We start off by learning on the basics of backtesting and how to judge the performance of a backtest.

After which we will learn how to use the backtesting software and conduct our own backtest!


This course shall be conducted by an experience instructor with many years of proven track record.


Unlike some other courses out there where you just hear instructors talking endlessly, and you only see boring text in their presentation, this course will include animations, images, charts and diagrams help you understand the various concepts.

This is also not a motivation class where I preach to you that you must work hard to succeed, or you must have discipline to profit from the market.


In this course, you will learn actionable methods and frame work.

So what are you waiting for? Its time to take action! Go ahead to click on the enrol button. I will see you at our course.
