  1. 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 ?

  2. 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.

    In the new update to VectorVest 7, Custom Moving Averages can be created in the Custom Field Builder and used in Unisearch searches. A Custom Moving Average can be added to any custom field.

    Last Friday’s Strategy of the Week describes how to setup a Custom Moving Average and use it in a search.

    The update is currently being rolled out, but it can be downloaded now from: http://www.vectorvest.com/install/vectorvest7

    Custom Moving Averages are available to all customers with ProTrader. If you don’t have ProTrader call us for a free trial!

    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.

  10. 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.

    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…

    This is possible in VectorVest 7, Mitchell.

    To see the earnings for S&P 500 on a graph, go to the Graphs tab and on the first button in the top toolbar, select Market Climate. One of the graphable parameters is Earnings for the S&P 500.

  14. 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.

    you have to do it manually, but you can now change the stop criteria at any given point in time during a backtest… in the holdings view, use the Edit Stops button.

  16. QuickList percent

    The % Change on the QuickList gadget is currently displayed as an integer. It should be displayed with at least one decimal precision. Currently if DJI is up .50 % it is displayed as 1%. This is misleading and inaccurate.

  18. RT ranking & graphing problem

    Open a stock graph, and then open its Industry graph (from the stock graph); RT Ranking is not available as a Parameter. However, if go to Viewers > Industries, and then open a graph, RT Ranking is available. This problem should be fixed.

  19. 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.
