Welcome to RealTest!
RealTest is a multi-strategy portfolio-level backtesting tool. Trading systems modeled in RealTest can use any number of different trading instruments and can include any number of different trading strategies. This ability to easily model multi-strategy multi-instrument systems opens the door to a diversified approach to systematic trading that has been difficult or impossible to test with other software.
There is a lot of information in this User Guide. Start by diving in and trying the four brief Tutorials with the software. After that, go back and forth between study and experimentation. There is also a series of video tutorials available on the mhptrading YouTube channel.
While evaluating and using the software feel free to also join the RealTest User Forum.
