Hi
i'm completely new to spreadtrading and i'd be really pleased if people can give me some advice and insight.

What software packages/websites are best for doing chart analysis of spreads and in particular backtesting - is this something that is done for non-seasonally based spread trading and if not, how do you know probabilities in order to assess your risk/reward and money management? (Obviously, if you are trading seasonals then you are probably best subscribing to a seasonals service rather than trying to chart yourself)

I have looked at Nextrend, Barchart.com, Britefutures.com, TracknTrade (seems expensive for it's functionality), etc. and they only allow pretty basic charting of spreads, and no way whatsoever to efficiently and easy backtest a spread trading methodology.

Has anyone else come across this problem and is so what did they do to overcome it?

Advice will be much appreciated!
Cheers
Syn
