  1. I have downloaded the nakshatra system for nifty and modified it. It is giving vey good calmar ratio for 6 months but the problem is i don’t have reliable data source for historical data. It would be great if you would share your data with us as you have shared many code. If it is not possible to share your data, please share the nakshatra system for tradingview where we can buy the data and test the code also. Thanks.
