Forex manual backtesting means scrolling the chart backward and moving forward bar after a bar from the chosen point. When it comes to checking the reliability of your strategy, there is no better way to do this rather than by manual backtesting. You could think that demo-trading is the apparent alternative way to try your trading logic without risking your hard-earned money and rumors say it is equally effective. But is it? Some consider demo-trading is linear and rather slow. The reason for that is having to sit through the whole process over and over for years to get the needed experience and solidify your strategy while manual backtesting allows you to open any currency pairs, charts, and timelines simultaneously with the ability to fast-forward the testing to get the most precise results. Basically, it’s years worth of experience in a couple of weeks.

Load the history for all necessary assets, set the broker, edit the trade attributes to recreate the market environment as close as possible.
