Take the guesswork out of your process with Zacks Pro Backtester.
Our powerful backtesting tool complements the Zacks Pro Screener by allowing you to test your stock selections—before you trade.
Zacks Pro Backtester puts virtually any investment criteria you want right at your fingertips. Create your own screens, build your own trading strategies, and backtest to see how they work. By knowing how well your strategies have performed in the past, you'll know what your probability of success will be now and in the future.
Zacks Pro Backtester gives you:
- Up to 20 years of Zacks backtesting data
- Access to more than 10,000 stocks
- Access to more than 650 data items to screen on
- Ability to create your own customized items
Use our Pro Backtester to test your strategy and see historical performance including:
- A summary of your strategy
- Comparison to the S&P 500 (or the Dow or Nasdaq)
- The number of stocks traded, plus individual returns of what stocks were bought and sold in the past
- The winning percentage of your holding periods, its max drawdown, and how your investment strategy performed in both up and down markets
Plus, every test automatically shows your strategy’s equity curve (performance chart) so you can quickly and easily see how profitable your screens really are.
Raise your backtesting to the next level.
Use our advanced features to run automated backtesting routines to verify a model's robustness. For instance:
- Perform ‘best case/worst case' analysis studies
- Do optimum valuation testing - to determine the most profitable parameters of a screen
- Narrow that down even further to determine the most optimum valuation ranges for a particular item
- Run multi-strategy backtests on an entire portfolio of strategies (screen of screens) to see how they act together
