Any suggestions for a trading platform in the UK that will let me back test various trading strategies, ideally over 20-30 years covering commodities and equities, thanks



eSignal has these capabilities as do Interactive Brokers. The real problem is the expense of the data feed for these types of studies. If you already have a data provider you can use Meta Trader, Ninja Trader, etc., to do your studies and I think many of the services are free. That’s about it (to my knowledge) unless you’re ready to lease a Bloomberg or use a prime broker like RediPlus platform from GS.


NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!

About caustic

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at
