A question about back testing and software.
Say if Iíve made 50 trades and these 50 trades are now closed out. I now want to go back and test a theory on these trades.
I want to see whether between the time I bought and the time I sold, if the share ever dropped to below 4% of my buy price. So what I want is to test if a given share price dropped to 4% in the time period I held the share. If this is possible. Can it be performed on a selected group of shares?
Reason for my enquiry. These 50 trades were closed in the range of 70% to -20%. Iím wondering what would happen if the trades were closed at a stop loss of 4%. Would I have saved some capital or would I have missed some of the +% trades?
Hope this makes sense and it someone can educate me on this.
