Does it seem like you had missed getting rich during the recent crypto craze? Fret not, the international financial markets continue their move rightwards every day. You still have your chance. But successful traders all agree emotions have no place in trading — if you are ever to enjoy a fortune attained by your trading, better first make sure your strategy or system is well-tested and working reliably to consistent profit. Mechanical or algorithmic trading, they call it. They'll usually recommend signing up with a broker and trading on a demo account for a few months … But you know better. You know some programming.
It is far better to foresee even without certainty than not to foresee at all.— Henri Poincare
Backtesting.py is a Python framework for inferring viability of trading strategies on historical (past) data. Of course, past performance is not indicative of future results, but a strategy that proves itself resilient in a multitude of market conditions can, with a little luck, remain just as reliable in the future. Improved upon the vision of Backtrader, and by all means surpassingly comparable to other accessible alternatives, Backtesting.py is lightweight, fast, user-friendly, intuitive, interactive, intelligent and, hopefully, future-proof. It is also documented well, including a handful of tutorials.
