Hello,

 I am unable to  run backtestings due to non availability of historical data.

 

I initially had some good backtesting results for 2-3 years since Jan 2008. Now I am looking for the fresh market data to be simulated over the backtesting but I am unable to do that. Can anyone guide me on that.


I am attaching some reference some results so that you can imaging how impatiently i am waiting to do a backtest for a recent time as well :)
