Allocation backtesting

Hey All,

Awhile back I went on a mission to create an allocation backtesting tool. Anyway I went ahead and created a php based website that allows people to backtest various allocations. It also has a few sample portfolios and articles. Eventually I will add more articles..

Let me know what you think please!

I think it's a good idea to implement Simba's spreadsheet as a web-based app, but you might want to link to the original spreadsheet and make your tiny "credit" section a bit more obvious.

Personally, I find the spreadsheet easier to use. I couldn't easily modify my scenarios with your app. Try putting the inputs on your output page, and make it easy to resubmit with some changed input.
