  1. As a backtester, I would like to set a Trailing RT Stop, so that i can trigger a sale before round-tripping the trade back to "even."

    I think a Trailing RT Stop is far more valuable than the current "RT < n" stop. An example would be "Stop if Trailing RT delta is at least 0.50". For a long position, this closes if RT drops by at least 0.50 from peak. For a short position, close if RT rises at least 0.50 from trough.

  3. In back-testing, add a feature that prevents new positions.

    My use case is one that watches some technical indicator on the market, which is more precise than VV market timing signals. For example, "Don't open any new long position if MTI < 1.05".

    Currently, I build a search that I know will yield zero results. I modify the back-test to use that search until the condition changes.

    If this feature were implemented, the back-test would only have to evaluate stop criteria until the constraint was lifted. It would bypass running searches until the back-tester stopped, and the constrant "unchecked."

  8. If a backtest is completed, and the search parameters/sort is modified, the backtest is not enabled to be re-run (Finish and Rerun). Some change must be made to the backtest parms, or a complete BT copy must be made.

    Sometimes, I am able to manually re-run to the start date, then push the Run To bar to the end date. This tends to produce execution failure messages.

    It seems that a back test defintion would know the last update timestamp of its currently selected search, and treat that as a re-runnable change.

    Other than that, a brute-force Rerun command would…

  10. This feature is available in Simulator to show how robust the search is during length of test and avoid situations where purchase of unreal amount of stocks come up on a buy signal. Now it can only be done manually after stopping at each turn. Should be an easy addition.

  11. VV7 and VV6 still pick up these stocks as not being pink, although they are: NMTI, SUPR, DJSP, CCME, These stocks can skew results of tests and there may be more.

  12. For testing ideas with very volatile stocks, it would be good to avoid the broker's penalty for buying/selling stocks on the same day they were sold/bought. This would supplement the "don't rebuy a stock for x-number of days" option.

  14. Segregate search days from entry days: Allow a search on a green day, but an entry on a separate day, like a yellow pullback day

  15. The truth table is cited frequently in market climate. I would like a table of truth table case start dates. Further this should be used for back testing

  18. As a start to better managing 250 backtests, being able to sort them by date "last modified" would be useful in identifying those of most interest

  19. If you use purchase on next days open, VV 7 will still buy the stock, even if there is no volume. I tried vol > 0, but that doesn't work on the next days' open purchase. In this search, I preferred not to use a 50 day average amount of volume. Example, GLBZ on 12/23/10. I think VV 7 needs to have a default setting built in, to not buy when there is no volume.
