What’s the better way to run backtesting as a beginner?

Hi guys,

Been running backtests on my trusty ol MS Excel interface by uploading historical price data and creating a bunch of true/false arguments and then stringing them together via a formula which checks trade results for a given setup condition.

Thus far I have reached a point where given the constraints of working with excel, I can no longer push the winning edge higher than anything more than 55% through backtesting.

Looking to expand the range of my possible variables but either Excel can't cater for it or it will be too cumbersome to do so.

What do you guys think is a good place to start with running simulations as a beginner?

I have no formal coding experience although I can write a mean looking excel formula to bootstrap my ideas.
