In the application of backtesting techniques to capital markets, backtesting is a specific type of historical testing that determines the performance of the strategy if it had actually been employed during past periods and market conditions.

For stocks, I use www.stockfetcher.com

I don't believe in BACK TESTING. I prefer to use statistical analysis of price.
