Essentials of an effective Backtester


Active Member
Hi Experts

What are the essentials of a good backtester?

Now i get a result for a particular strategy, something like

SL Hits=36
Not Triggered=19
NO RESULT(end of day has come)=6
NO RESULT(even after 5 candles)=13

The above is for a R:R of 1:1.

What else to check so that we get the confidence that we indeed have a tradeable/reliable strategy on hand??

All who know, plz make contribution, even though in brief.

Thanks all :thumb:
