FXT Screener offers a tool for practicing manual trading using historical data. Traders can simulate their rules to test how well they would have fared under particular historic market conditions, and to check how well their favorite indicators under certain criteria would have guided them in the past.
FXT Screener helps traders to pick up studies with the tools, such as Crosses, Streak, % Change, BBands and RSI and check the historical results.
Screener’s definitions: Before we continue with the case studies, let’s explain the terms “Starting date”, “last”, “mean” and “median”.
FXT Screener displays the historical results when the above criteria is met. Default starting date is 2010.01.01, although the tool displays data since they are available (maybe after the starting date). By clicking F7, traders can change the default starting date.
Last, Mean and Median % Change
The term “last” refers to the last bar % change. The term "mean" is the "average", where you add up all the numbers and then divide by the number of numbers. The “median” is found by ordering a set from lowest to highest and finding the exact middle.
