Back testing

Can anyone recommend some software for back testing of strategies. Is there something what would back test straight from the stockcharts scanner?

    I don't know enough to recommend, but I believe TradeStation, Metastock, maybe Worden offer back testing, but they also have a pretty hefty price tag. Some brokers have it, too. Not aware of anything that interfaces with Stockcharts.
  • KrisG, I haven't been using it lately, but when I have wanted to back test a scan I simply used the option in the Scan creation window to start the scan any number of days previously that I wanted. After running the scan, I saved the results in a List and then looked at the results/performance for the stocks subsequent to the time I had selected. Were you looking for something more complicated than that?
  • Thank you guys for your help. Cush i was looking for something that would tell me in % how good or not is my strategy
