What would you suggest to someone who wants to go back several years to test various systems on 5 minute bars? I am looking for input on continuous vs. non continuous, maximum download settings in DTS, and days to load settings in chart settings.


I want to test overnight trades using 5 minute bars on CL, GC, ES. Also want to be able to test gap trades for the daily session and breakout trades and fades. Need lots of data because I eventually want to test seasonal trades as well.
