We can define "best practice", for daily time frame, analize 10 years of historical price series with an unoptimized trading system. In this case we print a report with 5 years back because the report is a result of a wfa (walk-forward-analysis).
Most important is to see the detailed equity line. Against the close-to-close, the detailed show us intra-trade excursion of profits and losses
