Backtesting on Fidelity.com is provided for educational purposes and as an example only, and should not be used or relied upon to make decisions about your individual situation. You should not assume that backtesting of a trading strategy will provide any indication of how your portfolio of securities, or a new portfolio of securities, might perform over time. You should choose your own trading strategies based on your particular objectives and risk tolerances. Be sure to review your decisions periodically to make sure they are still consistent with your goals.
Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
