60-120 days backtesting
« on: August 24, 2014, 02:40:05 am »
Given that TI records every tick in the market... it would be more realistic / accurate   to be able to back-test 60-120 days. That should give enough data to accurately build a model that would be able to withstand fluctuations in the market.  Although I love what I am able to do with TI thus far...I don't believe 30 days is an accurate enough model / predictor  (not enough data) for what happens 60 days - 75- 100 days down the line.

We need to be able to back-test our model for 60 days+, so we can capture it's performance through a combination of market sentiments (bullish / bearish/sideway chop etc) ...and I don't believe there is enough data in 30 days to put our model thru this test. As you all know the past 2-3 wks have been pretty bullish...so the model that you are building now....may/may not withstand when the market turns...

When we make versions of TI PRO available in beta, they are already well tested. We release versions in beta and slowly make them part of the standard download, just to ensure they are at or beyond a Six Sigma level of freedom from bugs and any problems - standards higher than a lot of software out there. It is a product of our engineers' previous careers in defense systems for the U.S. Government. Benefits we pass along to our customers.
