The thinkBack tool is a thinkorswim feature designed for option back-testing. It stores nearly a decade of historical option trade data and allows you to back test strategies by entering hypothetical trades in this virtual trading environment.
Backtesting is the evaluation of a particular trading strategy using historical data. Results presented are hypothetical, they did not actually occur and there is no guarantee that the same strategy implemented today would produce similar results.
