  2. I'd like a one hour webinar on how to use the backtester. They go over using the backtester in webinars for 5 minutes, but that's not enuf for me.

  4. I would like to run a backtest where it takes profit (closes trade) at an exact percentage of profit and where it will take a stop loss at end of day price or opening of next day price. I see huge differences here between the stop loss and the take profit percentages over a year long backtest.

  5. Can we add into Backtester a stop functionality whereby a stop is triggered when a Stock's Price (low, high, open or close as selected by the user) crosses above/below (as selected by the user) a Moving Average (EMA, MA etc as selected by the user please?

  7. It would be great to be able to create a custom timing system to back test strategies. For example, I'd like to use an MTI moving average crossover to test various strategies.

  8. Backtester and Genius need to have an option to protect profits.

    For example, say the criteria is 50% profit & 10% loss and you have unrealized 40% profit. There should be an automatic method to trigger a sale to protect the profits before incurring 10% loss during a downturn. Perhaps a option to sell when 50% of the gain is lost or a trigger based on Moving Average Stop.

    I discussed in Tampa with Dr DiLiddo and he agreed this should be an option.

  9. I'm finding the name field for each back test to be too short (at 50 characters). That probably seems like a good number of characters but when trying to organize my tests (which accumulate quite fast even without auto tester) I find I'm running out of characters.

  10. I would like to see Contra ETFs and Leveraged Contra ETFs included in the backtesting setups for the 2014 Confirmed Call Sure Fire Success series. This would allow use in IRA accounts. My Backtest results using Leveraged Contra ETFs as a substitute for the Short strategies have yield approximately 3% improvements in % Gain, ARR, and DrawDn percentages.

  11. To assess the overall performance of a backtest, the details of dividends paid during the period of the backtest are a vital component of the assessment.

  12. Allow a different settings for neutrals after an up signal and after a down signal. This would be useful when testing shorts and contra ETFs which often perform better contrary to the direction of the market.

  15. I'd like to be able to rerun a backtest after changing the underlying UniSearch. As it is, I have to make a useless change to the test, initiate a run, stop, and go back and fix it and run it again. The Run button is not enabled unless a change is made to the test.

  16. When a stock is sold, everything gets sold then is reinvested in many of the stocks that were just sold but rebalanced. This way the best performing stocks are reduced and worst performing are increased. Also, % stop losses are reset when they shouldn't be.

  17. To backtest the "Cherry Picking with CI Up and Comers" SOTW, the backtester would need to halt when the number of positions < the normal portfolio size. Cherry Picking is a GREAT method that VV does not currently support. VV would create a tremendous marketing win by publishing the incredible gains possible using the above-mentioned SOTW.

  18. Since we can only print all of our backtests it would be nice to see what market timing was used for each test. Currently this market timing column does not show up when printing.

  19. Auto tester should reflect the so common amount of target % gain + %trailing stop. For instance take profit at 20% but trailing stop at 10

  20. I'm using rt kicker combo with no stops and close all positions when criteria is met and keep top 8 stocks as quickly as possible. This is a phenomenal strategy but the only possible drawback (I don't know because I can't backtetst the theory) is that it rebalances the portfolio as it replaces stocks that are no longer in the top 8 with their replacements. If we had 2 sales, I would like to take that cash only and buy the 2 new indicated purchases. That way, I'm not reducing the winners and increasing the losers.
