Backtesting (opens in a new tab) is the process of using recorded data of cryptocurrency / stock markets injected in a system to test its performances on past data.
OctoBot backesting feature allows to test strategies, trading modes and technical evaluators by replaying a past scenario.
Backtesting is very useful to quickly test different configurations.
OctoBot has a strategy optimizer feature that uses several backtesting scenarii to compare different settings of a strategy and a trading mode.
This feature is a fast and easy way to test and compare settings on a given strategy and trading mode and figure out the best setup without having to test it on a real time market.
