How can we improve VectorVest 7?

add portfolio groups function

It quickly gets cumbersome to work with a list of portfolios without the ability to group them and minimize and expand the groups

Portfolio Groups is a feature we are currently working on for a future update that will greatly improve the Portfolios in VectorVest 7.

We don’t have a date yet, but I’ll let you know when the update is ready to be released!

    Simply being able to group portfolios does not get the whole job done. We also need the ability to consolidate several portfolios. For example my actual brokerage portfolio includes 4 Vector Vest portfolios which each use different trading strategies. It would be very useful, and reduce duplicating input of actual trades etc.if these four portfolios could be consolidated in VV.
    Another way of accomplishing this would be for the Genius to be able to assign different trading strategies to individual stocks in a portfolio.

    Folders in Backtester and in Portfolios should be a no-brainer. In Portfolios, they have grouped the VV model portfolios so that you can hide them with one click of a check box. A recent up grade allowed you to pick the page (Home, Viewers, Unisearch, Portfolios, etc. However, they stopped short on this idea. They should have allowed the user to set a default WITHIN most pages. For example, I may want to start in Viewers, Sector Viewer rather than in Viewers staring at a blank screen. The same is true in Portfolios. I may want to start by looking at "My Active Portfolio" rather than a blank screen.

    To have the ability to create portfolio groups would be a big advance. VV-US had groups. You used to see the group called "Model Portfolios" and the VV managed portfolios were there, including many of the classic models like "Yellow Brick Road". Folders such as are provided in UNiSearch would allow us to create a manually managed portfolio set with duplicate portfolios in another group called "Automated- aggressive" and another group called "Automated -conservative". This would help teach investors whether their manual controls are effective.
