info

Pro-rata pricing for Live Trading. Deploying a strategy uses fewer credits as your billing cycle progresses.

Strategy Price(Day 1 of Billing Cycle) = 100 Credits

Strategy Price (Day 28 of Billing Cycle) = 4 Credits

This means that as your billing cycle progresses, it becomes cheaper to add a trade to your live trade or forward testing plan. This is what we mean by Pro-rata basis. You can deploy different strategies in your slot for different days of the week. You can also switch strategies in your slot after deploying them. 

Only strategies whose status is running are considered towards your daily live execution plan limit. Under "Deployed Strategies" if the status of a strategy is anything other than "Running", for eg. "Squared off", "Manual" or "Error", you can switch them by adding any other strategy from "Deployable Strategies".

Forward Testing‚Äč

Forward Testing credits expire 28 Days from the purchase of your Forward testing plan. If you add more strategies in the middle of your billing cycle, you will be charged on the basis of the number of days remaining in your billing cycle(Pro-Rata Basis). For example, you will be charged 25 credits if you activate a new strategy for forward testing on the 14th day of your billing cycle.

Once you have purchased Forward Testing credits you can go here to begin Forward Testing.

Cheapest Backtests out there!‚Äč

Also, at Rs 1 per backtest, our pricing is still the cheapest plan out there. For a 5-year backtest, that's 20 paisa per backtest per year!

On AlgoTest, you need 1 credit to backtest a strategy. There is no restriction on the number of years you backtest a strategy for. On the contrary, we encourage you to backtest all your strategies for at least 5 years to get a more accurate picture of how well your strategy has performed in different market scenarios.

So if you take our "Starter" plan for Rs 300, one backtest is going to cost you Rs. 1 or 20 paisa per backtest year.

So if you have 6 different strategies in a portfolio that you would like to backtest for a period of 5 years, it will consume 6 credits.

Our Pricing Process - Understanding AlgoTest Slots‚Äč

At AlgoTest we sell slots that you can then use to run your strategies for Live Trading and Forward Testing. Think of it like renting a room in a hotel. 

We give out a room for rent for 28 days. You can have different residents living in that same room during the 28 day period. But only one resident at a time. 

Similarly, if you buy a slot from us, you can either run one strategy on that slot for a period of 28 days. Or you can run 28 different strategies on 28 different days (provided you square off the running strategy each day). 

For instance, you can create an Execution Plan for yourself anticipating your requirements for a billing cycle (28 days). For example, say you need to Forward Test 2 strategies daily and 5 max daily live deployments for your billing cycle. In order to make a plan for yourself go to My Profile, under Execution Plan click on "Add a plan". Here you can input your requirement and see that you need 600 credits to activate this plan:

Forward Testing = 2 X 50 credits = 100 Credits

Live Deployment = 5 X 100 Credits = 500 Credits

Once you have purchased the 600 credits from our credit packages you will be able to activate this plan for your billing cycle. You can always add more forward tests and live deployments at any time during your billing cycle which shall be added on a pro-rata basis. 

Similarly, for backtesting go to My Profile, under Backtest Plan click on "Add more Backtests". Here you have two options:

  • Limited Plan: Add the number of backtests you want to purchase. 100 backtests require 100 credits.
