Traders often ask about backtesting for bots but this is very difficult to achieve, especially if users have created bots that scalp small profits (<1%), as no chart data service can provide a 1-second chart data feed that goes back more the 24-48 hours.

Paper Trading was introduced a while ago and it simulates real-time forward testing which had much superior results than backtesting could offer.

Thus, the backtesting is not available on 3Commas.

REMEMBER - 3Commas also does not support TEST nets or TEST accounts of any kind, please avoid trying to connect them to 3Commas!

But there are some resources below that you might find useful if you would like to backtest bots and strategies.

TradingView

If you have created (or are using) a published TradingView.com indicator, please check if the author has published a matching Strategy script as you can backtest these on your account at Tradingview.com.

Other resources

Backtesting ideas and discussions can also be found on the internet using a search engine, and a website you might like to look at is https://backtest-rookies.com/ as they have some very nice content and some great ideas!

Happy trading 💰💰💰
