Backtest the entire market

The OddsMaker is the event-driven backtesting module inside Trade-Ideas Pro. Unlike most backtesting tools that only track one or a handful of instruments, the OddsMaker looks at the entire market (or your custom lists) to determine the odds of a winning strategy in the current market conditions.

Visualize your returns and set expectations

The OddsMaker has a number of unique tools allowing for the immediate visualization and analysis of your strategy’s simulated performance. Immediately on running the OddsMaker, you can see your equity curve for the backtested strategy. Customize the summary view to instantly see how your starting equity, share size, commission, and slippage will impact your trading.

Fast and easy – no programming required

The OddsMaker is fast and powerful. There’s no programming or scripting knowledge needed – any of your Trade Ideas strategies can be tested and improved in a few minutes. Select the strategy window to test, set the entry/exit/hold conditions, and run the OddsMaker. The bulk of the computations are done on our servers, so you get results quickly. All strategy refinements are accomplished using the same configuration window Trade Ideas clients use to configure alert windows.
