  1. Closing Position and Buying from Search

    On BackTest in VectorVest 7, there are 4 built-in choices to choose from in Market Timing List. But I miss the closing position and Buying from search option that we have in VV-usa. I'd like to use this option to get out and get-in in time of my own determiniation. We have better control of handling portfolio with this option.
    Thank you.

  4. Watchdog Alerts Order

    A customer requested that Watchdog Alerts be placed in the order with the most recent at the top and the oldest at the bottom. Currently they are out of order or the most recent is at the bottom. If there could be a feature that allows VV users to put these in order of their choice, it would be greatly appreciated.

  5. Alerts Portfolio and Watchdog

    The alerts at the bottom of the screen in VV7, whether for Watchdog or Portfolios, remain in the list and never go away unless each one is individually clicked on. Unless that is done, they remain in the list of alerts forever. Is there any way to have an options that will erase a group of alerts at the same time or automatically ?

  6. Performance Graph - allow drawings on Graph

    The Performance graph is the only graph that does not allow you to draw trend lines and all other drawing options. If other options are and issue - then at least allow the extended line. Also regression channels would be a nice option added to the drawing package.

  8. I would like to see a gain\loss stop criteria that allows for trailing stops. My broker can do this.

    My brokers conditional stop triggers has an option to stop on a gain price or trailing stop %. I would like to have this option in back tests.

    If i understand you correctly, you can accomplish this by unchecking ‘use market timing’ in the second step of the backtest wizard. doing so will give you just one set of automation rules, in which you can choose to buy long or sell short, thereby giving you a test where you’re always long or always short.

    To access VectorVest University from VectorVest 7, add the Training gadget to your VectorVest 7 homepage.

    The Training gadget when clicked will take you to the VectorVest University.

    To add the Training gadget, click the small Wrench button at the very top of the Home tab. This will drop down a list of all available gadgets. The training gadget is near the end of the list. Click on it to add it to your homepage.

  11. Portfolio Automation should include Timing List Options that are available in the Backtest.

    It doesn't make sense to offer fine-tuning of Backtests using Timing Options (i.e. Confirmed Calls, Primary Wave, DEW) and then not be able to apply that fine-tuning to your Portfolio Automation. It defeats the purpose of adding it to your Backtest.

  13. Improve color set-up for graphs when choosing white background.

    I very much like being able to select a white background for graphs separately from a universal choice. However, when this is done, colors of the selected graph items (RT etc.) are not changed and become invisible or nearly so. Please on making this white background selection, provide a complementary set of veiwable colors for all parameters.

    It combines the trends of the price of the VVC, BSR & RT into one indicator.
    It is not just a straight average of the three.

    There are times when the MTI can move in the opposite direction of the other three which is known as a divergence.
    One of the things that helped us nail the 3/9/09 market bottom was a divergence between the VVC Price and the MTI.

    See the strategy section of the VV Views on 3/6/09 where we described this phenomenon.

    “While looking at the All Daily view of the Market Timing Graph, note the similarity between the 07/23/02 and 10/09/02 pair of low points to the 11/20/08 and 03/06/09 low points. Also note the similarity between Bullish Price/MTI divergence of each of these pairs. If history repeats itself, we will soon have a Bear market rally which will peter out; then the…

  17. Proir Day's Stop Price

    Bug, in Portfolios > Manage Portfolios> Edit Portfolios Automation> Long> Choose Stop Criteria> Prior Day's Stop Price. When you set this it seems to work, but when you go back to to check it , it returns to default. Other stop criteria does not work ether Trailing Average True Range Stop.
