People come in with different backgrounds, and abilities.I imagine you have a computer back ground, so it is easy for you to learn that. I don't have much of a computer background. It could take me 15 or more times longer for me to learn it than you.I have a math background, so maybe I could learn topology quicker than you could.I also have a math background. And I've done computer programming. I used to be very good with FORTRAN and PL/1. Those skills have absolutely nothing to do with building backtests in gtr1. There is no computer programming involved. There are some hard to follow instructions available for gtr1 which, if I had to rely on them, I could never translate into a valid test. And there are numerous examples of tests created by Robbie and others, which are reasonably easy to decipher. There are ready made examples for all the standard screens. Understanding them and perhaps modifying them slightly to suit your needs is not rocket science. Don't look for lazy excuses.There's nothing wrong with starting out with a standard backtest at backtest.org, but gtr1 is immensely more valuable and worth the effort for something you're going to put your hard earned money into.Elan
