Why is Forex Historical data necessary?

When trading with Expert Advisors, traders rely on backtesting and statistics of the strategies. For this purpose, it is essential to have reliable Historical data. 
Let’s say we have a strategy with two entry conditions and one exit condition. The conditions are indicators used in MetaTrader. Each indicator has hundreds of different combinations for the parameters. This makes it impossible for the trader to find which parameters work best for one asset. This is where backtesting comes in. 
There are two methods to find the most reliable parameters in a strategy – generating and optimization. When generating strategies, the strategy builders find the most robust strategies for our criteria. If we optimize a strategy, the strategy builders on MetaTrader find the best parameters using the backtest over the Historical data. 
This is only possible if we have very reliable Forex Historical data.
