Backtesting is one of the most important aspects to consider when developing an algorithmic trading process. If created and interpreted properly, backtesting helps traders optimize and improve their strategies, find any technical or theoretical flaws, and gain confidence in trading strategies before applying to live markets.
Successful backtesting is, however dependent on the quality and reliability of the historical market data underpinning backtesting. To achieve successful backtesting, data quality must be paramount and presented in a way that enables rapid impact evaluation of all event-driven scenarios.
Traditional legacy market data vendors have, over time, amassed huge amounts of market data most suited for the use of the human trader when carrying out fundamental analysis. However, the next generation of algo traders tend to discount legacy data solutions due to their lack of time-stamping precision and heavy conflation which fails to provide all event-driven scenarios and the granular tick-by-tick data provided by venues and exchanges.
QuantHouse has been designing and developing algo trading solutions since its inception 16 years ago. QuantHouse’s historical data service - delivered on-demand - provides every single tick data produced by an exchange. Historical data On-Demand is delivered by QuantFEED’s normalisation technology and provides a high precision time-stamping source.
