What makes a trader successful then? In interviews, the best traders in history unanimously emphasize the importance of backtesting.
Backtesting means to use historical data of a capital market (a recording of price movement) to find out how well a trading strategy would have worked in the past. While there is no guarantee, very often a strategy that performed well in recent months will continue to generate profits in the future.
In manual Backtesting, trading many months of recorded market days within the simulation takes just a few hours of your time because you control the speed of the simulated market. This enables you to test not one but many strategies plus variations. Automatic Backtesting is a matter of minutes (or seconds). Forex Tester does both.

Psychology. In terms of evolution, a human being is not adapted for trading. In other words, we all are terrible traders from the very beginning because our DNA does not have the necessary features for that. Even if you learned all ins and outs of the market in theory, you will still be not suitable to trade without the skills of controlling your mind and emotions. The only way to really handle this area is to use a Forex simulator. Trade simulator is way of better than both: demo and real accounts. With demo, you will have to wait for ages to open the decent amount of trades. With a live account, you will get the feeling of a real market but because you haven’t mastered your emotions you will keep trading illogically and therefore lose your deposit very quickly. With our trading simulator a trader receives an opportunity to be in an exciting atmosphere when he (she) does not know where the market is going to move (as it happens with a live account), and at the same time the trader can find it out immediately (neither demo nor live account cannot provide you with this feature). In short, our backtesting software will supply you with all market analysis tools for taming of your inconsistent nature.
Method. The abundance of trading strategies on the Internet create a false belief that you have everything you need. But if you at least try the appropriate Forex trading simulator you will immediately discover that it is a huge lie. Vast majority of these so-called profitable strategies with which bloggers and pseudo-traders feed you up can give you few profitable trades but eventually they will create a significant drawdown in your deposit. The number one rule in Forex trading training is this: “Never put on trust somebody’s words”. You risk with your 3 the most powerful assets: time, money and self-esteem. If you prefer not to backtest the strategies that you have found on doubtful resources, one day you will lose all of the money you have saved for trading. Without a Forex backtesting software you will spend hundreds or even thousands of hours on Forex learning not achieving any positive result. Moreover, without Forex training software you will end up frustrated and depressed. What normal person wants to spend time, money, efforts and mental power on this ungrateful task? There are just 2 possibilities that are open for you now: either select the path of failure or to buy probably the best trading simulator and at least not to lose anything. No one can guarantee that with our trading simulator you will learn how to trade. It all depends on your deliberate work, dedication and ability to analyze your learning methods and trading actions. It depends on your capability to make the right decisions and to stick to them.
Money management. There are a lot of smart and disciplined traders who still cannot succeed on the Forex market. The reason is that they lack one more incredibly valuable pillar in their trading: they completely misunderstand the importance of the money management. Currency trading requires from a trader to have tough rules on how much he (she) can afford to lose on a single trade, how many trades he (she) can lose a month. If you neglect these fixed rules or not to pay enough attention to them you will never be able to bring your trading to a professional level. One can make amazing trading decisions, to be fully in charge of his (her) emotions and win most of the trades. But all this success can be dismissed with a single trade that was opened if the trader did not stick to the money management principles. Backtesting is the activity that allows growing this personal trait up. Forex training is impossible without Forex software and especially without a trade simulator. Start sharpening your money management skills today with the help of Forex Tester 2, the best trading simulator one can find.
Correct the mistakes. The true Forex learning includes the opportunity to correct the mistakes. Most of the traders do not understand that it is practically impossible to learn Forex using demo and live accounts. Demo accounts give you a chance to learn Forex trading in case if you have tens of years ahead of you. Live accounts do not provide you with such a chance: if you have made the mistake, there is no way you can fix it. You have already lost the trade (or a range of trades) and the Forex analysis will help you to quit doing the same mistake in future, but not to change the past. Forex simulator, in its turn, can return you back in time and correct the mistake immediately – you can backtest your strategy and go back as much as you need. This amazing Forex training software will forgive you any mistake without back firing to your real money.
Detailed Statistics. Not only you can get rid of any mistake as if it has never occurred, you can also bring you Forex trading training to a higher level using detailed statistics. Our trade simulator has plenty of built-in parameters for evaluating of your trading performance. With Forex Tester backtesting software, you do not have to simulate the market in the dark. Since now, all the necessary things are included. “Net and gross profit”, “maximum profit and loss trade”, “maximum drawdown” and tens of other values will improve your Forex currency trading as soon as possible.
Strategy Optimizer. Forex backtesting software, that we provide, also gives you some automated market analysis tools. You can take any automated strategy and to simplify its usage even more.
Example. You test the Simple Moving Average Crossover strategy that is built in Forex Tester. Your main goal while testing this kind of strategy is in finding out which parameters you need to set. Which time frame should you use? What is the perfect periods for your moving averages? Do you need to use simple, exponential or weighted lines? Strategy Optimizer will answer all of these questions in the fastest and easiest way. All you need to do is to set the initial values for periods, set the step and the end values. The program will automatically test all possible mixtures and discover the best one possible. Moreover, if you test on several years of data, you get the 100% most accurate outcome for this currency pair and time frame. At last, you can export the data to Excel for the further analysis. Then you can change the time frame or the currency pair and repeat the test once again. This will eventually provide you with knowledge on which period, time frame and currency pair to trade.
