I think the backtest is very important, it helps to know if our strategy is fiable.et also test an idea quickly Then test it on a demo before going live account. I'm working on Forextester with data of 5 years and it is already five months past we live. here is the link of our strategy in developing forextester https://www.stevehopwoodforex.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1448 and the account is published on Philippe_Myfxbook
Backtesting is the only quantifiable way to ensure a strategy conceived is viable and statistically worthy to trade on a forward test. A robust backtest over several years plus a robust demo forward test over several months/years allows us to feel we can trade the system with real money.
