Re: A somewhat shinier backtester

Are you hosting the GTR1 queries and database?

A somewhat shinier backtester

You got the teaser about the SSD. While I didn't quite get the deal Phil saw on Amazon, prices are generally looking good. I wouldn't have even been shopping for one though, if I hadn't seen a great deal on eBay where I keep an eye out for something [more]

Re: GTR1 Uptime Improvements

Re: backtest.org problem?

Re: backtest.org problem?

I wanted to use YEY(1-5, monthly) from 2005 to 2014 for a test CAGR, so I went to backtest.org...
