Sorry, I used to post here regularly, but it's been a while. I moved away from exploring various ideas into trading a single ETF (profitably, I might add), mostly based on volatility estimates.

I have an idea I'd like to backtest, and although I do recall building simulations on some platform in the past, I can't recall what that platform was! Does stockfetcher offer this? If not, is there a well-known platform that has existed for years which allows one to explore end-of-day trading of one or more equities based on a certain set of rules? I know I used to do this but for the life of me I can't remember which site it was. Thanks for any help.

Welcome back-
You might re-read all your past posts that it may help you remember. As far as I know SF doesn't have back testing anymore.

Oh . . . maybe that's the answer . . . it WAS here but that feature has been disabled?

I remember writing pretty specific trading rules, including things like stop losses, etc. I believe it was one equity at a time.
