  • fast-trade

    low code backtesting library utilizing pandas and technical analysis indicators

    You can start with fast-trade if you’d like. It’s a pretty simple backtesting engine but you can modify it however you’d like. Full disclosure I made it but I was trying to figure out how to get started as well and this is what I ended up with. Good luck!
