Topic: Starting date of backtest

Hello traders!

I want to compare the performance of several portfolios on particular date range.
For example:

  • start of backtest on 1 May 2020
    finish of backtest on 1 June 2020

But indicators of the strategies in portfolios need different number of bars to start. So I should check option "Start the backtest from bar 100".
So should I upload data for the period: [1 May - 100 days; 1 June] to start the backtest on 1 May 2020?
Or can it be done by simpler way?

Re: Starting date of backtest

You may run a complete backtest in MetaTrader, then you can compare the Balance values at the dates you are interested in.
The difference between the balance will be roughly equal to the performance for that period.
