Backtesting is the process of applying a trading strategy or analytical method to historical data to see how well the strategy or method would have predicted actual results.

It allows an investor to mimic an investment strategy over a specific period of time and then analyze the results for profitability and risk.

Backtesting therefore offers investors a way to evaluate and optimize their investment strategies and analytical models before implementing them and risking any actual capital.
