  1. Enable use of different timing signals for up and down calls

    In AutoTester, allow for the ability to use different timing signals to drive up and down calls. For instance, allow for the use of the DEW on the up side and the Primary Wave on the down side.

  2. Enter My Own Stock Symbols & Prices and Backtest Sell Strategy only.

    I have a history of my purchases and would like to test sell strategies. I would like to just add a symbol and date and purchase price. Then test sell strategies on all stocks. i.e., % trailing stops. Also like the idea of selling at the stop price if it traded there, not at the close or open.

  3. Make Backtest Commission more robust

    Interactive Brokers charges 0.005 per share with a $1 min per trade and a max fee based on purchase amount. Your price per share field only goes as low as 0.01 and no max or min inputs.

  4. Add 'pain threshold' to backtester options

    the pain threshold would allow users to set a threshold for max drawdown. Once their overall portfolio had declined by x% all positions would be closed to prevent extreme losses.

  5. Ensure Backtest results summary matches results from Report Summary

    Baktest results on My Backtest page do not match results from 'Report Summary' (Tot Value, % G/L, % Winners) I understand that they would match if all positions were closed at end of backtest. However we may want to keep equities open so test can continue in future. I suggest that the two reports be set up to match even when backtest positions not closed

  6. better VV7 backtest reports

    Currently the Report available for VV7 backtests are pretty pitiful. I know you are working hard to improve VV7. The backtest reports need to be as complete as they are in the Simulator.

  8. show Mathematical Expectation in backtest summary like in VV6

    VV6 has it. Positive expectation over time will have profit, while negative will not

  11. Backtest Graph - shown as it would have appeared on a given date, automatically.

    When I run a search for backtesting purposes, it would be helpful if the graph would default to that specific date. Example - run a search for stocks on 1/3/07 - graph should appear as it would have on 1/3/07 not as of today's date.

  12. MTI in backtest

    Add the ability to use MTI above a specific value (say 1.5) as a condition for not allowing a trade in a backtest.

  13. Selling Mode in Back Tester

    I would like the back tester to fill sell orders based on a percentage of volume.

    For example if the volume for the day was 1 million shares and the test owns 4 million shares when a stop is met I would like it to only sell a reasonable amount based on volume. Even if it takes a few days.

  14. time stop

    A time-stop is the point in time when you will sell the stock if it does not rise or decline as expected. Adding a time stop as a secondary stop criteria (along with existing stops such as Gain/Loss, ProfitLocker, etc.) would be beneficial in developing trading systems. Check out http://www.stockdisciplines.com/time-stops for more information on time stops.

  15. Add Folders to the Backtester tab for organizational purposes

    Having folders within the Backtester tab would make it easier for organizational reasons, especially during times of competition.

  16. Increase capacity of saved back tests. VV deletes tests (randomly?) after ~ 500

    VV deletes tests (randomly?) after ~500. There needs to be an option (even at a slight $premium) to increase the allotted tests or allow export/import of results and settings.

  17. Show a DATE RUN field for backtests

    I run some backtests repeatedly using the same start and end dates, but I get different results when I rerun the tests on different days. I would like to see a DATE RUN field. This would also allow me to weed out old backtests and find recent ones that I may want to rerun or modify.

  19. backtester

    I have a large number of backtests that I run. I would like to be able to make change of the end test date and then run the test.
