Conway Queries: Are Backtests Bogus?

News summary by MFWire's editors

Maybe backtests aren't all they're cracked up to be.

Following on the heels of a previous article warning about the failings of backtesting, Barron's columnist Brendan Conway wrote another article looking at the potential pitfalls of a fund's backtest.

In the article, Conway cites a column by Morningstar ETF strategist, and MorningstarETFInvestor editor Samuel Lee.

Apparently there are a lot of ways that a backtest can turn up bupkis. Among the important things to look for are strong economic intuition, intellectually honest sources and simple and transparent methodologies, among other things.
