Hi everyone, What are the differences between vectorized and event-driven backtesting? Which type do you use? Is the difference important for non-HFT strategies like swing trading? Which one is more realistic? Any help is appreciated, thank you and I wish everyone profitable trades.
How common is it for traders to have systems that are nearly impossible to backtest automatically, even by experienced programmers? For example some patterns would be detected differently by a computer than a specific human, right? Since humans do also have different opinions on them. So my question is: is it common to do manual backtesting, using intuition as well? If so, what tools do people use for this purpose?
