Why is Forex Historical data necessary?

When trading with Expert Advisors, the traders relay on the backtesting and the statistics of the strategies. For this purpose, we need reliable Historical data. 

Let’s say we have a strategy with two entry conditions and one exit condition. The conditions are indicators used in MetaTrader. Each indicator has 100s of different combinations for the parameters. This makes it impossible for the trader to find which parameters work the best for one asset. This is where the backtesting comes.

There are two methods to find the most reliable parameters in one strategy – generating and optimization. When generating strategies, the strategy builders find the most robust strategies for the criteria we have set. If we optimize a strategy, the strategy builders on MetaTrader finds the best parameters using the backtest over the Historical data.

This is why all of that is possible if we have a reliable Forex Historical data.
