Do You Want to Become a Better Trader?

What if you could become a better trader and be more profitable? You could learn more about your system and the markets you trade in.

Are you currently backtesting your trading strategies? Do you have a reliable way of testing your trading ideas.

Do you want to be independent and not to have to rely on someone else or a ‘black box’ piece of software?

YouTube Videos

I have put online a series of YouTube Videos. In these videos I have covered how to import data, how to calculate technical indicators and how to build a simple backtest model. I also show how you can analyse the results and then optimise your trading strategies.

These videos are useful because they show a step-by-step method. I recommend watching them if you are interested in backtesting using Excel. However, if you want to learn more about how to build your own models there is another option.

Excel Course – “How to Backtest a Trading Strategy Using Excel”

In response to the feedback I have received from the videos I have created a course. The course is in the form of an Amazon Kindle ebook.

If you follow this course you will:

  • Improve your Excel skills
  • Build a Long-Only Backtest Model
  • Build a more advanced Long-Short Backtest Model
  • Learn How to Optimise your Trading Strategy
  • Tips for Improving Your Backtesting Skills

The backtest models in this course can be applied to any market.

Amazon Kindle Store

The course book is in the Amazon Kindle Store. It is available worldwide. Below I have links to the US and UK Amazon stores but you can find it by searching in your local Kindle Store.


The book is available in the Kindle Store. Kindle books can be read on Smartphones, Tablets and computers. iPhone, iPad, Android and Blackberry users can download the free app. PC and Mac users can read them by downloading the free software.

Good luck in your trading!
