Test your trading ideas and strategies from any device - your Phone, Tablet, Laptop or Desktop.

No programming required.

Test and run your trading ideas and strategies in the Live Markets in Simulation Mode, or trade them directly through your brokerage account. Design from charts or use our Strategy Wizard, you won't have to write any code!

Have you ever had an idea about a market, looked at a chart or a market study and thought there is a pattern and a potential trading strategy there but had no easy way to test it? Candlestick patterns, and bar patterns that looked good but you lacked definitive analytics for confident buying and selling strategies? Most people have, but if you are not a programmer there is no simple way to test your ideas, chart relationships, or determine how they might have performed in the past. Few have the time, money or resources, let alone a tool that works in a browser or on your mobile device. Not any more, with Primal Quant everyone, everywhere can test ideas and trade strategies for Stocks, Futures, Forex, and Cryptocurrencies on Primal Quant’s Web Application.

Use The Strategy Wizard, no programming required!

Use our Strategy Wizard to design and test your own trading ideas and strategies from your Web Browser or on your mobile device without writing any code to see how they did in the market in the past. Use traditional technical analysis, statistical analysis and bar pattern recognition from our library, fundamental analysis, and intermarket analysis in your strategies. Easily set stop loss limits, profit targets and other testing parameters. If you don't like the results from your creation, change some things and try again, it's like a game, it's fast, and it's fun!

Accurate And Detailed Event Driven Backtesting

It is very important to ensure that the historical testing of your idea or strategy is accurate and realistic, as well as providing detailed statistics relating to the results of each historical test. Our Trading and Testing Engine is event driven, exactly as it is for Live Trading. It even takes into account commissions and fees that you pay your broker in actual trading, end-of-day account margin requirements, and allows you to make regular additions or withdrawals to your account, perhaps for income needs, during the period of the historical test or your idea or strategy.

I invest in stocks, I don't trade. Is Primal Quant for me ?

Yes, the Primal Quant Web Application is not just designed for active traders, it is designed for investors just like you. Primal Quant gives you the ability to develop both simple and complex strategies that can alert you, or automatically trade for you, when critical inflection points occur in your portfolio stocks. This enables you to take advantage of market situations, or implement stop losses for your portfolio stocks to help reduce losses during market downturns. Primal Quant can easily be set to alert you when one of your portfolio stocks is overbought or is signaling a short opportunity. This is information you can use to exit the market until your long or short term strategy offers a new buy signal. You can design and test "long only" strategies to help you time long portfolio trades and help you avoid volatility or market corrections. And like any strategy created in Primal Quant you can first test the historical effectiveness of that timing through backtesting to adjust and refine your strategies until you are confident to implement actual trading decisions.

Use End of Day and Intraday Market Data in your ideas and strategies

As part of a monthly subscription you have access to end of day price data for US Stocks and ETF's, and end of day and intraday price data for Futures, FOREX and Cryptocurrencies. You also have access to historical fundamental data on US Companies, as well as data from CFTC Commitments of Traders reports for US Futures Markets. All of this data can be used to test your ideas and strategies and to run them in the Live markets. Recognize that we are not a market data vendor, and we do not provide any access to market data for use in any other application.

HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE MANY INHERENT LIMITATIONS, SOME OF WHICH ARE DESCRIBED BELOW. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN. IN FACT, THERE ARE FREQUENTLY SHARP DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND THE ACTUAL RESULTS ACHIEVED BY ANY PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM.

ONE OF THE LIMITATIONS OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS IS THAT THEY ARE GENERALLY PREPARED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT. IN ADDITION, HYPOTHETICAL TRADING DOES NOT INVOLVE FINANCIAL RISK, AND NO HYPOTHETICAL TRADING RECORD CAN COMPLETELY ACCOUNT FOR THE IMPACT OF FINANCIAL RISK IN ACTUAL TRADING. FOR EXAMPLE, THE ABILITY TO WITHSTAND LOSSES OR TO ADHERE TO A PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM IN SPITE OF TRADING LOSSES ARE MATERIAL POINTS WHICH CAN ALSO ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER FACTORS RELATED TO THE MARKETS IN GENERAL OR TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ANY SPECIFIC TRADING PROGRAM WHICH CANNOT BE FULLY ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE PREPARATION OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND ALL OF WHICH CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS.

We are a technology company bringing the power of Wall Street to Main Street. Everyone, everywhere can design, test, and trade ideas and strategies for the global markets using our Web Application.
