Backtesting is a first class citizen in Acuitas. In fact, you cannot run paper trades or live trades without a backtest – this is part of the flow.
Along with backtesting fully integrated into they system, we have also made it as easy as possible to use.
You start by selecting a strategy. Next you choose which your common properties such at the pair, buy and sell types, amounts, and the candle period.
The strategy properties are displayed next to the common properties and come with default values. You can change any of these values to suit your need. We have intelligently combined secondary indicators the best compliment the primary indicator. In the case of our Bollinger Bands strategy, we’ve included RSI, trailing, and DCA.
Once your values have been set, we also provide a way to save them as a template to use again on another pair.
Clicking the Run button will backtest your strategy. Acuitas provides useful metrics such as total P&L and the percent of gain.
A fully functional integrated TradingView chart plots out all of the trades so you can see how your settings performed. No guessing or leaving the bot to plot out some results – everything is built in!
On the bottom we provide the list of all the trades and in the case of the example on the left, this includes all the DCA buy information as well.
