Create Your Moving Average Backtest

A backtest is a simulation of an investment strategy using historical prices. This moving average backtest selects the stocks that are trading above their moving average.


What stocks would you like to include in your investment universe?



Select benchmarks that you would like to compare your strategy's performance against.



Allocate weights to each of the signals to customize your own trading signal for your backtest moving average strategy. Stocks with the strongest signals are bought and stocks with the weakest signals are sold.
