Back-testing Portfolio - Need Help

Postby Mian » Tue Jan 29, 2013 8:37 am

Does anyone have any suggested methods of back-testing a mostly EFT portfolio? I want to go back three years and find that the software I'd use (probably M*) wouldn't take monthly distributions into consideration for BND and that I'd have to enter them manually -- very time consuming!

How do you all go about doing back-testing?

Hi Mian,

You could backtest the ETF's using a tool like http://etfreplay.com/combine.aspx
You can do this for free for a few securities.

Kind regards,
