Found out from someone on Instagram that we can backtest with TradingView! Which is amazing as I just love TradingView and is where I do all my analysis on the weekend.
If you are interested in signing up click here:
How To Get Started:
1. Turn on Bar Replay (click on icon in the toolbar at the top of the screen)
2. After you turn it on, you will see a new toolbar appear on your chart. You will also see a vertical red line appear where your cursor is.
The red line marks where the replay will begin, so do not click until you have scrolled back to where you want the playback to begin.
You can use the scroll control on your mouse the move the chart back or click and drag the chart to move it. Clicking and dragging will not set the start point.
3. Once you have scrolled back to where you want to begin the replay, click once on the chart and you will be in Replay mode. Now click on the Play button to start the replay.
This is what it looks like:
That’s it, simple right? Now let’s take a look at how you can use this to improve your trading.
HAVE FUN AND ENJOY! No need to pay for a simulator when TradingView provides one.
