Portfolio Backtester

As its name implies, the Portfolio Backtester provides assistance with evaluating an EA portfolio. It lets the user run backtests of multiple strategies on various symbols and timeframes, scheduling the tests and running them in an automated hands-off fashion, starting and stopping MT4 as necessary. Ultimately it produces results that can be opened with spreadsheet applications such as Excel and analyzed based on various criteria.
Naturally, the Portfolio Backtester works with the Tick Data Suite and it’s also worth mentioning that it integrates with the QuantAnalyzer.

Walk Forward Pro

As its name implies, this software performs a walk forward analysis of an expert advisor. Walk Forward Analysis is a procedure that many professionals consider to be the best approach to optimizing a strategy. It consists of optimizing an automated strategy on a limited range of time, running a backtest to validate the resulting parameters on out-of-sample data then shifting the time range forward and repeating these steps multiple times. This method avoids curve-fitting and ensures that the resulting optimized parameters have values that work in a generic way, providing the best chance when the strategy runs on a live account.
Naturally, the Walk Forward Pro software also works with the Tick Data Suite.

Portfolio Architect

A specialized software for analyzing and optimizing an EA portfolio. You can drag and drop multiple backtest results from a variety of platforms (including MT4 and MT5), view the combined balance, equity and drawdown chart and inspect a host of metrics such as the sharpe and sortino ratio. This makes it very easy to see how adding or removing a particular strategy affects the portfolio performance. It also permits a very flexible configuration of a trading portfolio, optimizing it based on the impact of each strategy.
Further analysis can be performed on the portfolio as a whole or on each strategy independently such as profitability on a time unit (for instance hour or day), compounding and so forth. The Portfolio Architect allows gaining some useful insights that can later be applied to maximize the returns.
