Or the existing backtesting frameworks cannot be used to fully test their trading ideas. An increasing complexity in market data, trading strategies, and backtesting frameworks is a challenging issue. In this webinar, you will learn how MATLAB can support the prototyping and development of walk-forward analysis in order to backtest your trading ideas, starting from getting market data, implement trading strategy, testing framework, and performance analytics. You will see how MATLAB provides a single platform that allows the efficient solution of walk-forward analysis.
With MATLAB, you can efficiently explore, analyze, and visualize your data. Through this webinars, you will learn:
- The challenging issues on developing trading strategies
- Different types of backtesting framework
- Different types of optimization method that can be used for optimizing trading parameters
