Common Questions

Here are a few questions that were asked by customers, if you have any other questions regarding backtesting please contact us.


When the backtest ends, why is the equity not equal to the balance and why does it show drawdown?

This happens when there are still trades open and at a loss, at the end of a backtest the cTrader platform does not automatically close all trades, you will find that some positions will still be open, sometimes in profit and sometimes in a loss.


Can I use a different symbol, optimise the settings and run a backtest?

Yes, you can, just change the symbol name, run the optimisation module and run a backtest to see if you have good results.

Please remember that the algorithm is designed for the symbol stated on the product page for maximum performance.
